KARACHI: 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 here on Saturday.
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.
