Zardari Requests Acquittal In Park Lane Reference

ISLAMABAD: Lawyer of former president and co-chairman of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Asif Ali Zardari on Tuesday requested acquittal of his client ahead of his indictment in Park Lane reference.

Judge Azam Khan of an accountability court heard the park lane company reference case.

During the hearing of the case, counsel of Asif Ali Zardari, Farooq H Nayik contending for disposing of the case said that court should understand whether National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has acted according to the law as the bureau cannot file itself reference against loan transactions.

Arugements from both sides are continued in the case as the court adjourned the hearing on the request of Farooq H Nayik till July 21.

Earlier, accountability court deferred the indictment of former president Asif Ali Zardari in Park Lane reference, as his counsel Advocate Farooq H Naek filed plea against the proceedings.

During hearing Zardari’s lawyer filed a petition in accountability court to stop the indictment against former president, as proceedings against his client were not legally justified so the court should stop the indictment.
