Toshakhana reference: NAB opposes Zardari’s acquittal plea

Court adjourns mega money-laundering reference against Zardari till Jan 7

APP December 17, 2021


The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Thursday opposed the acquittal plea of ex-president Asif Ali Zardari in Toshakhana reference and requested the accountability court to dismiss the case.

AC-III Judge Syed Asghar Ali heard the reference against ex-prime minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani and former president Asif Ali Zardari.

NAB, however, requested the court to grant it time for comments on acquittal pleas of co-accused Khawaja Anwar Majeed and Khawaja Abdul Ghani Majeed under the second NAB Amendment Ordinance.

Meanwhile, AC-II Judge Muhammad Azam Khan adjourned hearing till December 23, on the Thatta Water Supply reference against ex-president Asif Zardari, co-accused Ejaz Ahmed Khan and others. The hearing was adjourned without proceeding due to the absence of defence lawyer.

The same court also adjourned the mega-money laundering reference against Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur till January 7.
