According to the plea, the FIA’s FIR does not mention money-laundering or Faryal Talpur’s clear role in the alleged crime. The PPP leader has pleaded that the court declare the challan illegal and nullify it.
Earlier, the Ministry of Interior has removed the names of former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur from the Exit Control List. The names were removed from the list by the Interior Ministry days after they were placed on it in order to prevent them from leaving Pakistan.
The Supreme Court of Pakistan directed the FIA to summon the suspects after the July 25 General Election as Asif Zardari and Faryal Talpur stated through their lawyers that they were busy in their election campaign.
