The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has decided to withdraw appeals in corruption cases against former president Asif Ali Zardari.
NAB decided to withdraw appeals in corruption cases against PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari 25 years ago. A plea has been filed in the Islamabad High Court seeking the withdrawal of four appeals against Asif Ali Zardari. The available record against Asif Zardari is not ‘sufficient’ and the relevant evidence is also in the form of photostat copies, the NAB says in its plea to the IHC.
Pleading the cases will be an exercise of wasting time, the NAB says in its plea. Earlier, former president Asif Ali Zardari moved the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to withdraw his acquittal appeal in the Rs8 billion suspicious transaction reference.
An acquittal appeal was filed in the Islamabad High Court by former president Asif Ali Zardari, through his counsel. In his appeal, he seeks the withdrawal of the reference.
