Zardari, Faryal’s Judicial Remand Extended till Nov 26

ISLAMABAD: The accountability court in Islamabad on Tuesday reserved its verdict on a plea filed by former president Asif Ali Zardari seeking his transfer to Karachi for medical treatment and extended the PPP co-chairman and his sister Faryal Talpur’s judicial remand till November 26 in fake accounts case.

During the proceedings, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor presented his arguments before the court.

The prosecutor stated: “Zardari was shifted to the hospital upon recommendation of a medical board formed by the government […] filing an application with the government is not begging.”

The prosecutor further asked whether the former president was transferred to the hospital due to begging.

“The situation is not like this […] now seeking the recommendation of the same medical board and the government is being interpreted as begging,” he argued.

After hearing the arguments, the court extended the judicial remand of Zardari and Faryal till November 26 and asked the bureau to produce them again in the court upon expiry of the remand.
