ISLAMABAD (HRNW) – An accountability court in Islamabad will indict former president Asif Ali Zardari and other suspects in the Park Lane reference on March 25, Dunya News reported on Tuesday.
AC Judge Azam Khan conducted hearing of the case and approved Asif Zardari’s plea seeking exemption from appearance today on medical grounds. Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Faryal Talpur appeared before the court.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor told the court that prime suspect in the case is under arrest and requested the court to indict him through video link. Judge Azam Khan directed the prosecutor to file an application in this regard.
Asif Ali Zardari and Faryal Talpur’s counsel Latif Khosa argued that statement via video link is not easy to record as the federal government will first write to the provincial government.
