ISLAMABAD: An accountability court of Islamabad on Monday indicted former president Asif Ali Zardari, his sister Faryal Talpur and Abdul Ghani Majeed in a mega money laundering case.
Majeed and Tarlpur were present in the court room while the indictment was made, however, the suspects have denied the allegations on them.
On Sept 9, the accountability court had declared former prime minister Nawaz Sharif a proclaimed offender and indicted Zardari and former PM Yusuf Raza Gillani in Toshakhana reference case.
Omni Group’s Anwar Majeed and his son Abdul Ghani Majeed were also indicted in the same reference.
Judge Asghar Ali had declared Nawaz Sharif a proclaimed offender after his case was separated from the other accused. The judge had sought details of movable and immovable properties of the former premier in seven days. He had also warned that his properties would be frozen if he did not appear before the court.
On Sept 9, Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Zardari had said that all the cases against Asif Ali Zardari were politically motivated and nothing more than a joke.
“What kind of buffoonery is it? Stop this joke now. Asif Zardari is being dragged in Islamabad’s National Accountability Bureau (NAB) courts,” Bilawal Zardari had said.
