Islamabad, June 11 (BAN/ AD): Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari has been remanded for 11days after a day he was arrested by NAB in connection to fake accounts case. As per rules he has undergone medical check-up by a team of doctors and Zardari was declared fit for physical remand after the examination.
Zardari addressed media outside the courtroom, saying the “selected” prime minister has no knowledge of the matter and the “arrest is the interior minister’s doing”.
“Zardari laundered money through frontman and unnamed institutions,” NAB officials explained court. NAB also contested saying that there were eight concrete grounds for Zardari’s arrest. Zardari’s counsel, Farooq H Naek, further maintained that the trial will only be fair if the investigation is impartial. The alleged front companies for Park Lane and Parthenon were mentioned before the bench, to which Naek objected that “there was no connection between the fake accounts case and Park Lane”.
