KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday has rejected all of the pleas seeking to cancel the banking court’s decision to transfer the ongoing probe in Fake Bank Accounts Case and Mega Money Laundering Scam case submitted by the former president Asif Ali Zardari and his accomplices.
As per details, SHC heard the case pertaining to the petitions filed to challenge the banking court’s decision to transfer the ongoing probe to Islamabad. The SHC, however, rejected all the pleas and upheld the banking court’s decision to transfer the case to Islamabad.
The pleas were filed by the former president Asif Ali Zardari, Faryal Talpur, Anwar Majeed and others.
Earlier on March 16, former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur has challenged the banking court’s verdict in the Sindh High Court (SHC) to transfer their ongoing probe in money laundering case to Islamabad from Karachi.
As per details, the former president challenged the banking court’s verdict in SHC via a petition filed by his counsel Farooq H. Naek.
The petitioner has requested the court to revoke this act of transferring the case towards National Accountability Bureau (NAB) as it is not a corruption case and it does not come under the anti-graft body’s jurisdiction.
Zardari’s counsel in his petition said it is not corruption reference which is transferred towards NAB. This case cannot be transferred from Sindh to any other province as it is against the law so we demand to revoke the decision of the banking court.
A day earlier, a banking court ordered to transfer the case pertaining to mega money laundering scam and fake bank accounts to Islamabad.
