Zardari expected to be October 28 in a case involving Rs8 billion in fraudulent transactions

An Islamabad accountability court on Thursday indicted former president and PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari in a Rs 8 billion suspicious transaction case.

Accountability court judge Syed Asghar Ali rejected Zardari’s plea for acquittal and summoned him for indictment at the next hearing, according to the court’s decision, which was reserved earlier today.

The hearing has been adjourned till October 28.

Zardari submitted his plea for acquittal.
Today, the former president of Islamabad appeared before the accountability court and sought acquittal.

During the hearing, his lawyer Farooq Hamid Naik claimed that Zardari could not be prosecuted after the new NAB ordinance.

“In this example, my client has not been charged with damaging the national treasury,” the lawyer added, adding that the case did not fall into the category of corruption or corrupt activities.

As a result, the lawyer said the accountability court did not have the authority to hear the case.

According to Zardari’s lawyer, his client has been charged with registered sale duties of Rs 150 million, and the money was paid through bank checks in the case.

He claimed that the bank checks did not belong to Asif Ali Zardari.

First of all, can you tell me if this request is acceptable or not? The judge asked

The lawyer urged the court to send a notice to the NAB seeking a reply, saying it would present its arguments on the matter.

Meanwhile, the judge has delayed his decision on the admissibility of the petition and said he would pronounce his verdict soon.

The PPP will form the next government.
After his appearance, Zardari told the media that his party would form the next administration in the nation.

This process will continue until the country’s economy declines further
