Former President Zardari Withdraws Bail Pleas

ISLAMABAD: Former president Asif Ali Zardari on Wednesday withdrew all the pleas that he filed in Islamabad High Court (IHC) seeking bail in Fake Bank Accounts case.

As per details, a two-judge IHC bench comprising Justice Amir Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kyani heard on the protective bail plea filed by Asif Zardari.

On this occasion, Asif Zardari was in attendance at the course of proceedings in the court.

He told before the court that prosecution accuses me on constructing a company.

“According to NAB, I have formed a company however I have no connection with the bulletproof vehicles and Parklane case. NAB claims I bought park lane company yet they do not have my signatures on any such ownership document that may second their stance”, Zardari said.

When inquired by Justice Amir Farooq, the NAB prosecutor highlighted that arrest warrants were issued for the ex-president in only Parklane case, not in other two separate inquiries.

IHC on Monday had summoned the under-arrest politician in payment of bulletproof cars from pantry case, a case pertaining to fake bank accounts reference.

Former president’s counsel Farooq Hamid Naek and Lateef Khosa appeared before the High Court.

When asked by the court over the status of another plea if the previous one was rejected, Farooq Naek responded that it was necessary for an applicant to be in attendance at the court.

After hearing arguments of defendant’s lawyers, the court then issued production orders of Zardari and ordered NAB to produce Asif Zardari before the court in the next case hearing of June 26.
