KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) is hearing on the petitions filed by suspects in Mega Money Laundering scam case against its shifting to Islamabad.
According to details, a two-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa is hearing on petitions challenging banking court’s verdict of moving the case to federal capital.
Earlier in the month, former president Asif Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur’s counsel Farooq Hamid Naek filed a petition in SHC against banking court’s decision of moving the case to Islamabad.
“The banking court has shifted money laundering case to Islamabad. This case cannot be moved to Islamabad since it is beyond National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) range of authority”, the petition stated.
“It is not a corruption case. Moving it to another province other than Sindh is illegal. Therefore, banking court’s decision of shifting the case to another city should be outlawed”, the petition added.
It was followed by suspects; Anwar Majeed and his son Ghani Majeed who on Monday filed two additional petitions in Sindh High Court (SHC) against banking court’s decision of moving Fake Bank Accounts case to Islamabad.
