    Asif Ali Zardari and Faryal Talpur's names removed from ECL [Update Post #26]

    ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Sunday ordered the names of 20, including former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur, be placed on the Exit Control List (ECL) in relation to a fake bank accounts case.

    The order came as Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar took notice of the slow pace of inquiry into a fake bank accounts case.

    The apex court has summoned the seven fake bank account holders and 13 beneficiaries on July 12 (Thursday).

    Zardari, Talpur, Tariq Sultan, Erum Aqeel, Muhammad Ashraf and Muhammad Iqbal Arain are among those who have been issued notices to appear before the top court on the given date.

    Further, IG Sindh has been directed by the apex court to ensure that all those summoned are present for the hearing.

    The SC has also directed the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) to stop a Rs7 billion equity submitted by Summit Bank.

    The reason things didn't move against Zardari up until now was that the PMLN-PPP majority in Senate and National Assembly could easily move to amend NAB laws and other accountability rules. But now that they won't be having a majority, They can move against Zardari.

    The Supreme Court has directed the interior ministry to place the names of former president Asif Ali Zardari and PPP leader Faryal Talpur on the Exit Control List (ECL), DawnNewsTV reported on Monday quoting Attorney General Khalid Javed.

    The directives were issued by the apex court in connection with an ongoing suo motu case concerning an investigation into fake accounts and fictitious transactions worth billions conducted through several mainstream banks. The fake accounts were allegedly used for channeling funds received through heavy bribes and kickbacks.

    On Monday, Dawn had reported that the SC had ordered the names of presidents and chief executive officers of three banks allegedly involved in the suspicious transactions — reported to be to the tune of Rs35 billion — placed on the ECL.

    It emerged today that the apex court had also ordered the interior ministry to place the names of all beneficiaries and accused persons identified in the case on the ECL, “so that they may not leave the country until the investigation in the matter is concluded or till further orders passed by this court”.

    According to an ongoing Federal Investigation Agency investigation, the beneficiaries include PPP leader Zardari and his sister, Faryal Talpur.

    Talking to DawnNewsTV on Monday evening, Attorney General Javed confirmed the development.

    But though the AG confirmed that directives to this effect had been received, some confusion persisted till late evening over whether the interior ministry had actually taken the decision to place the two on the ECL.

    Geo News and The Express Tribune had earlier in the day quoted interior ministry officials denying the reports.

    Geo had quoted the interior secretary as saying that: “We have not issued any instructions to bar Zardari and Talpur from leaving the country.”

    “We will look into the matter after orders from the court,” Geo had quoted him as saying.

    However, a later report quoted unnamed sources as saying that the brother-sister duo had been barred from leaving the country for thirty days after being placed on the Provisional National Identification List.

    Well-planned conspiracy
    The FIA chief had earlier told the court that the inquiry into the suspicious transactions was initiated in 2015 on a source report and, as a result, 29 ‘benami’ accounts were identified. Of these, 16 were in Summit Bank, eight in Sindh Bank and five in UBL. Seven individuals were involved in suspicious transactions of Rs35bn, he added.

    The FIA chief had also complained that the bankers were not providing required records to the agency.

    According to the FIA DG, the investigation had revealed that Kiran Aman, the then operations manager of Summit Bank, had admitted and verified forged signatures of an account holder as genuine with mala fide intention.

    Noreen Sultan, the then relations manager of the bank, had also admitted the forged signature of an account holder on an annexure for change of signature from the one found on the account holder's CNIC.

    Adeel Shah Rashidi, the then branch manager of the bank, had also admitted to deliberately signing documents to approve the account, even though the bank's record showed that the account had, in fact, belonged to the allegedly Zardari-linked Omni Group.

    Rashidi had later disclosed that the documents had been sent to the corporate department of the bank for approval and Taha Raza, the corporate unit head of the Summit Bank, had sent back the documents with remarks “referred by Hussain Lawai” with a directive to open the account.

    Hence, it was established that the bankers had fraudulently opened fake/forged accounts fulfilling the codal formalities, the FIA DG said.

    Lawai, a close aide to Mr Zardari and Pakistan Stock Exchange chairman, and Raza have already been arrested by the FIA.

    This is again some dishonest journalism and example of pre-poll rigging. Every news agency is posting big picture of Zardari in regard to this news. People need to get the context of the story, they are talking about Rs 35 Billion (35 Arab), out of which only Rs 10.5 Million(1.5 Cores) belongs to Zardari, that is just a very small amount of total money(0.03% of the total money, less than 30th of a percent) , they put the picture as if 30 billions belongs to Zardari. And this is all about sending foreign wires type transactions, which FIA thinks is black money, stuff is still under investigation, why they are coming up with ECL just before election??

    What is the purpose of these types of actions by interim govt just 2 weeks before elections?? - Reminds me of FBI press release about Hillary Clinton's email(two weeks before poll) and not about Trump's Russian scandal, which switched enough votes to swing the election. Not that PPP is in any position to win election, but Establishment is doing its best to clear the path way for PTI(in many places 2-5% votes changes the election), this sort of stuff is called pre-poll rigging

    The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Tuesday summoned PPP supremo Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur in connection with a probe into 29 ‘benami’ accounts allegedly used to channel illicit funds, an FIA official told DawnNewsTV.

    The development came a day after the Supreme Court directed the Interior Ministry to place the names of all those connected to the accounts on its Exit Control List (ECL) to prevent them from leaving the country before the case is concluded.

    The FIA has constituted a Joint Investigation Team (JIT), headed by FIA Sindh chief Munir Ahmed Shaikh, to investigate the matter.

    The duo has been directed to appear before the authorities on Wednesday to record their statements and explain their position on the accounts and transactions.

    Recent developments in the case have sent shockwaves through the PPP, with Zardari scrambling to pull together a team of legal experts to extricate him from the situation. According to sources privy to the development, star lawyers Farooq H. Naek, Aitzaz Ahsan, Nayar Bukhari and Latif Khosa will brief Zardari on his legal options.

    Zardari's close friend and Pakistan Stock Exchange Chairman Hussain Lawai, along with Summit Bank’s corporate unit head Taha Raza, have been taken into FIA custody in connection with the case.

    PPP's reaction
    In response to the development, PPP today issued a statement linking the "character assassination" of Asif Zardari to the ongoing election campaign.

    "Always a character assassination campaign is launched against Asif Zardari during elections," PPP leader Saeed Ghani claimed.

    "The exploiter gang is frustrated at Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari's popularity," he said, adding that the already closed cases [against Zardari] are being re-opened after they realised the popularity of Bilawal. "Why don't they recall the reference of the judicial murder of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto?" he asked. "Masters became active after the failure of their pawns," he added.

    Suo motu notice
    The apex court had last week taken suo motu notice of a 2015 probe into suspicious transactions made through 29 ‘benami’ accounts — 16 held in Summit Bank, eight in Sindh Bank and five in UBL.

    Seven individuals, including Zardari and Talpur, were said to be involved in using those accounts for suspicious transactions which summed up to Rs35 billion. The accounts were allegedly used to channel funds received through kickbacks.

    Among the suspected beneficiaries, the apex court has summoned: Nasser Abdulla Lootah, Ansari Sugar Mills Pvt Ltd (Anwar Majeed, Ali Kamal Majeed), Omni Polymer Packages Pvt Ltd, Pak Ethnol Pvt Ltd, Chamber Sugar Mills Pvt Ltd, M/s Agro Farms Thatta Pvt Ltd; Zardari Group Pvt Ltd (Asif Ali Zardari, Faryal Talpur), Parthenon Pvt Ltd (Iqbal Khan Noori), A-One International (account identified in Suspicious Transac*tion Report), Lucky Interna*tional (STR), Logistic Trading (STR), Royal International (STR) and Umair Associates (STR).

    Those who reportedly deposited the money into the accounts were: Bahria Town Karachi (Zain Malik), Sujawal Agro Farms Pvt Ltd, Tando Allahyar Sugar Mills Pvt Ltd, Omni Pvt Ltd, Agro Farms Thatta Pvt Ltd, Alfa Zulu Co Pvt Ltd, Haji Mureed Akbar (banker on behalf of contractor), Sher Mohammad Mugheri & Co (contractor), M/s Sardar Mohammad Ashraf D. Baloch Pvt Ltd (contractor), A-One Interna*tional (STR), Lucky Inter*national (STR), Logistic Trading (I.I. Chundrigar) (STR), Iqbal Metals (STR), Royal International (STR) and Umair Associates (STR).

    On Monday, the top court had directed all suspects, including Zardari and Talpur, to appear before the court.

    CJP denies giving order to place Zardari, Talpur's names on ECL in fake accounts case

    Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar on Thursday denied that he had ordered former president Asif Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur's names be placed on the Exit Control List (ECL) in connection to a probe regarding suspicious transactions through 29 'benami' accounts in mainstream banks.

    On Monday, Attorney General Khalid Javed told DawnNewsTV that the apex court had issued directives to the Interior Ministry to place Zardari and Talpur's names on the no-fly list.

    Although certain media reports quoted Interior Ministry officials as denying the development on Monday, caretaker Interior Minister Azam Khan confirmed on Wednesday ─ contrary to the CJP's statement today ─ that the SC had directed the ministry to place Zardari and Talpur's names on the ECL on Monday, and that the ministry had complied with the orders.

    CJP Nisar in today's hearing also asked the Federal Investigation Agency to refrain from questioning both PPP leaders until after the July 25 polls.

    "Tomorrow no one should be able to make excuses that the elections have been rigged," the CJP said.

    Before the elections, all suspects apart from Zardari and Talpur should be included in the investigation, the CJP said.

    Justice Nisar, who is heading the two-judge bench hearing the case, also remarked: "It is necessary to clarify which suspects' names have been placed on the ECL. Are Faryal Talpur and Asif Zardari suspects?"

    "If they are not suspects, then why did the media report that their names have been placed on the ECL?" he asked.

    "We have still not placed their names on the ECL," he said, adding: "This impression must be eliminated."

    The CJP said that whosoever's names had been placed on the ECL would remain there until August 6. If someone turns out to be innocent, their names will then be removed, he added.

    "We took this notice on the basis of media reports," the CJP said. "The corruption scandal should be investigated to reassure poor citizens."

    Zardari's lawyer, Farooq H. Naek, told the court that his client is being accused of holding Rs15 million in his accounts. He told the court that the PPP co-chairman had no ties to the Zardari Group. "He is not even the group's director," Naek added.

    Justice Ijazul Ahsan said that those who haven't played a role in the case should not be harassed.

    The CJP asserted there must be a fair probe into the matter, to which Naek responded that the probe is being conducted by FIA's Najaf Mirza, whom Zardari had earlier filed a case against.

    The chief justice said that a new joint investigation team (JIT) could be set up to probe the case, which concerns a 2015 FIA investigation into fake accounts and fictitious transactions worth up to Rs35 billion conducted through 29 ‘benami’ accounts in Summit Bank, Sindh Bank and UBL.

    Seven individuals are believed to be involved in the suspicious transactions, and the fake accounts have allegedly been used to channel funds received through heavy bribes and kickbacks.

    "There is already a JIT probing the matter," Naek told the court, requesting that Najaf Mirza be withdrawn from the FIA probe into the case.

    The court, however, rejected the request saying that it could not replace Mirza until a complete picture of the situation emerged.

    He added that the court did not wish to impact the impression of politicians, and said that the hearing of this case should be adjourned until after the elections.

    'Fake accounts were not opened'
    Summit Bank Vice President Hussain Lawai, who is currently in FIA custody, was presented in court today.

    Lawai's lawyer told the court that the bank's investment activities had been negatively affected by the 'media campaign'.

    Both judges deliberated over how the media can be stopped from covering the matter.

    The lawyer expressed fear that the entire bank may collapse as a result of the court case against it.

    "The people's only issue will be that their money is safe," the CJP responded, asking Lawai: "What do you have to say about where the Rs35bn came from?"

    "The cases regarding the accounts did not reach me," he told the court.

    The bank must provide assurance that fake accounts are not opened, Justice Ahsan said. "Fake accounts have been opened," he asserted.

    The lawyer, however, denied that fake accounts were opened.

    But the FIA director general stepped in to tell the court that the administration had opened the fake accounts themselves.

    The date of the next hearing has been set as August 6.

    Zardari, Talpur's names removed from ECL: sources

    ISLAMABAD: The Interior Ministry has removed the names of former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur from the Exit Control List (ECL), sources told Geo News on Wednesday.

    "Zardari and Talpur's names were removed from the ECL on the directives of the interior secretary," the sources said.

    "The interior secretary had prepared a summary a few days earlier directing that the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader and his sister's names be removed from the list," they added.

    The move comes after the Supreme Court on July 12 put to rest reports that it had issued directives to bar the PPP co-chairman and his sister from leaving the country for their alleged involvement in a corruption case, sources further said.

    A two-member bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar. while hearing a suo motu notice into the Federal Investigation Agency's (FIA) probe of a Rs35 billion money-laundering scam, clarified that the brother-sister duo had not been not placed on the ECL.

    Earlier sources had said, the names of the brother-sister duo had been placed on the no-fly list on the orders of the Supreme Court.

    The FIA is investigating 32 people in relation to money-laundering from fictitious accounts, under which Zardari’s close aide and Pakistan Stock Exchange Chairman Hussain Lawai was also arrested earlier this month.

    Zardari and Talpur had also been summoned by the FIA for questioning regarding the case. However, the chief justice directed the FIA not to summon the brother-sister duo till the July 25 election.

    Names of Zardari, Faryal removed from ECL

    ISLAMABAD: In a significant development, the caretaker government on Wednesday removed the names of former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur from the Exit Control List (ECL) as they were deemed not to be involved in a massive money laundering scam.

    A few days ago Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar had denied that the two PPP leaders were suspects in a money laundering case.

    According to sources in the government, the interior ministry has removed their names from the ECL and sent copies of a notification issued in this regard to all the authorities concerned.

    The names of Mr Zardari and Ms Talpur had been included in the ECL on the request of the Federal Investigation Agency in a case relating fake accounts and fictitious transactions worth Rs35 billion. Three banks — the Sindh Bank, United Bank of Pakistan and Summit Bank — were said to be involved in the scam. The names of Mr Zardari and Ms Talpur were put on the ECL on July 8 along with those of five other accused in the scam.

    The interior ministry had then claimed that their names had been included in the list on the orders of the Supreme Court.

    This was done last week a few days after they had been added to the list.

    Zardari is too powerful and clever to go through being charged for this.

    This is the level of justice in Pakistan. A proven fraud like Zardari has been spared.

    Money laundering case: FIA summons Zardari, Faryal Talpur tomorrow

    ISLAMABAD: The Federal Investigative Agency (FIA) summoned Pakistan Peoples Party Co-Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur to record their statements in the money laundering case on Saturday.

    Both the leaders were summoned by the agency's commercial banking circle, FIA authorities told Geo News. The FIA had previously declared former president Zardari, Talpur absconders in relation to the money laundering case.

    The probe
    The FIA inquiry started when the financial monitoring unit of the State Bank of Pakistan generated a 'suspicious transaction report' in January this year regarding ten bank accounts.

    Sources maintain that over 20 ‘benami’ accounts at a private bank were opened in 2013, 2014 and 2015 from where transactions worth billions of rupees were made.

    The amount according to FIA sources is said to be black money gathered from various kickbacks, commissions and bribes. But despite these huge transactions, the bank authorities never reported them to the authorities concerned including the FIA.

    Pakistan People's Party (PPP) leader Faryal Talpur on Saturday requested a joint investigation team (JIT) formed by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to grant her more time to appear before them, DawnNewsTV reported.

    The investigation team had ordered Talpur to appear at 11am today in connection with a money laundering case. However, in an application submitted by her attorney, she sought more time on account of her "being busy" with a banking court, where she went today to submit Rs2 million in surety bonds to secure an interim pre-arrest bail.

    Talpur, who won the July 25 general election from Sindh Assembly constituency PS-10 (Larkana-I), is named in a corruption case relating to fake accounts and fictitious transactions worth Rs35 billion, along with her brother, former president Asif Ali Zardari. Last week, both of them were declared absconders by the FIA along with 18 others.

    After the challan was issued, Talpur requested a division bench of the Sindh High Court in Larkana to grant her protective bail in the case. The high court accepted her plea and granted a six-day bail on July 23 that will expire today.

    On Friday, her counsel had said that the PPP leader wanted to join trial proceedings, but feared that if she would do so, the FIA would arrest her. Therefore, the court was requested to grant a pre-arrest bail in order to enable the applicant to surrender and join the trial proceedings.

    The corruption case, in which Talpur is named, was initially registered against former Pakistan Stock Exchange chairman Hussain Lawai, who is widely believed to be close to former president Asif Ali Zardari, and other bankers in connection with an ongoing probe into a massive money laundering scam.

    Lawai and other bankers were accused of facilitating opening of 29 ‘fake’ accounts in Summit Bank, Sindh Bank and United Bank Limited, where ‘beneficiaries of the Sindh government’ had deposited Rs35 billion that was subsequently transferred to different accounts. Lawai, along with three other bankers, was arrested by the FIA earlier this month.

    In the case's interim charge sheet dated July 21, 2018, Zardari and Talpur's names appeared in the list of absconding accused persons along with their addresses.

    Additionally, Zardari's close aide Anwar Majeed and his son were also named in the list of absconders which contains the names of 20 individuals.

    FIA summons Zardari, Talpur on Aug 4 in money-laundering probe

    KARACHI: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has summoned former president Asif Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur in money laundering probe on August 4.

    The agency has issued notices to both to appear before a joint investigation team, which is probing the matter.

    The FIA is investigating 32 people in relation to money-laundering from fictitious accounts, under which Zardari’s close aide and Pakistan Stock Exchange Chairman Hussain Lawai was also arrested earlier this month.

    FIA had earlier summoned Talpur and Zardari on July 11, however, the siblings had failed to appear before the agency.

    Talpur later asked FIA to provide more time to the two for submitting a response.

    The probe
    The FIA inquiry started when the financial monitoring unit of the State Bank of Pakistan generated a 'suspicious transaction report' in January this year regarding ten bank accounts.

    Sources maintain that over 20 ‘benami’ accounts at a private bank were opened in 2013, 2014 and 2015 from where transactions worth billions of rupees were made.

    ISLAMABAD: Former president Asif Zardari's sister Faryal Talpur on Saturday demanded removal of the head of a joint investigation team formed on the Federal Investigation Agency's directives to probe money-laundering allegations against them.

    Zardari and Talpur again failed to appear before the FIA today, despite being issued notices by the agency to appear before the JIT at its headquarters in Islamabad.

    Citing reservations against JIT head Najaf Mirza, Talpur's counsel Farooq H. Naik petitioned the FIA to replace him and constitute a new investigative team to probe the matter.

    Naik told Geo News that Zardari had registered an FIR against Najaf Mirza back in 2005. Expressing his reservations against the JIT head, the counsel said a transparent investigation into the matter was not possible if Mirza was not replaced.

    "We are ready to cooperate with the FIA," Naik said, adding that Talpur could not appear before the JIT as she was in Larkana to submit her asset details.

    The agency, on August 1, had issued notices to both to appear today before a JIT in Islamabad formed to probe the allegations.

    Sources informed Geo News on Friday that a team of FIA officials had collected evidence in the Rs35 billion money laundering case, and handed it over to the JIT.

    According to the sources, money trail of Rs23 billion out of Rs35 billion had been obtained so far.

    The sources said that the JIT had decided not to register further cases with regard to money laundering until the next hearing of the case by the Supreme Court on August 6.

    They added that legal action would be taken against the former president and his sister if they failed to appear before the JIT.

    ISLAMABAD: Submitting a reply in the apex court with regard to Rs35 billion money laundering scam, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Faryal Talpur has said the initiation of a Federal Investigation Bureau (FIA) probe against her and the PPP supremo Asif Ali Zardari, ahead of July 25 polls was the ‘worst example of pre-poll rigging’.

    Zardari, Talpur fail to appear before FIA in money laundering case

    Talpur, who is Zardari’s sister, has said the entire exercise of registration of the FIR and filing of an interim charge sheet nominating her and her brother was based on mala fide intention and ulterior motives to malign and defame them before the voters.

    Taking a strange stance, her reply also claims that money laundering laws are not applicable on her or the former president, as they are not ‘public servants’.

    The prosecution has applied sections 419, 420, 468, 471, 109 PPC read with section 5 (2) PCA 1947 and section 3 & 4 Anti Money Laundering Act 2010.

    “All these sections are not attracted to the respondent (Talpur) as well as Asif Ali Zardari. Both are not public servants and as a matter of fact, none of the accused are public servants. Thus section 5 (2) of the Prevention of Corruption Act is not applicable,” says the reply filed through Farooq H Naek. Though the reply has been submitted on behalf of Talpur, a defence has also been given on behalf of Zardari.

    It further claimed that the Supreme Court’s purpose for initiating suo motu proceedings against in the case of alleged money laundering has been achieved as the FIA has lodged an FIR and an interim charge sheet has been filed nominating both the PPP leaders as an accused before the special court.

    “Any further proceedings in the titled suo motu proceeding would be in violation of the respondents’ fundamental rights as envisaged by Articles 4, 13 and 25…as well as section 403 Code of Criminal Procedure regarding double jeopardy. No one can be prosecuted twice for the same offence.”

    She requests the court to drop proceedings against both the PPP leaders, adding that the FIA should be directed to submit final challan within a month if the case is made out beyond a reasonable doubt.

    Talpur pleads the SC to proceed strictly in accordance with law without harassing and disparaging and defaming her and her brother’s names and reputation. Likewise, the FIA be directed to remove Najaf Mirza and appoint an impartial FIA officer as head of its joint investigation team (JIT).

    The reply says names of both the PPP leaders were falsely incorporated in the interim challan with mala fide intentions and ulterior motives in order to defame and disparage their reputation, which is also evident from vast adverse coverage of the incident in the media.

    “The name of both leaders only appears with respect to the company namely Zardari Group which is allegedly a beneficiary and both of them in their personal capacities have not been shown as beneficiaries in the FIR. Even otherwise Asif Zardari has no role to play with respect to the business and other affairs of the said company. He is only a minority shareholder in the said company.”

    PPP leaders demand removal of FIA DG and JIT head

    It states that a sum of Rs15 million had been deposited in a bank account of the Zardari Group. However, there is no specific allegation against both leaders. The FIR does not show any manner that both respondents have committed any offence of cheating or forgery which would attract section 419, 420, 468 or 471 and or 109 PPC. No role has been assigned to them in the FIR as well as interim challan.

    The reply alleges that the FIA Assistant Director Muhammad Ali Abro is acting under the instructions and collusion and in conspiracy with Director General Bashir Memon, whose brother, Naseer Memon, contested the election on a Grand Democratic Alliance (GDA) ticket against the PPP.

    Likewise, FIA Additional Director General Najaf Quli Mirza, who also heads a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) was accused in an FIR registered by Zardari in 2005. Najaf is also a cousin of Dr Zulfiqar Mirza, who is hostile toward Zardari and contested the elections on a GDA ticket against a PPP candidate.

    I want to see Zardari and his clan suffer..... Nawaz's corruption is not even a quarter of what this dog Zardari has amassed. Unfortunately IK has never gone after Zardari with the same fervour, hope that changes. The issue is Zardari never does anything through his own name or his children, he has front men to take care of everything. He is also cunning and not paindu like Nawaz. If PTI achieves one thing during their rule and it is to put this snake and his sisters behind bars then I would consider their government a success.

    Swiss cases against Asif Ali Zardari can't be reopened, SC informed

    The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday informed the Supreme Court that the Swiss cases against former president Asif Ali Zardari cannot be reopened as the appeal of the Pakistani government was time barred.

    “[The] record reflects that the matter before the Swiss Court could not be reopened as the appeal of the government of Pakistan was barred by time,” the reply submitted to the apex court read.

    The reply was submitted in the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) case filed against Zardari. NAB also submitted details of five corruption cases pending against the former president in Islamabad and Lahore high courts including the ARY Gold and assets declaration cases.

    On Tuesday, the Supreme Court directed former presidents General (retd) Pervez Musharraf and Asif Ali Zardari, and former attorney general Malik Qayyum to submit their property details along with an affidavit to the apex court.

    Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, hearing the NRO case, said that accountability should begin with the powerful.

    Zardari’s legal counsel Farooq Naik told the court that both the former president and his son Bilawal Bhutto Zardari have recently submitted their asset details with the Election Commission of Pakistan in their nomination papers.

    I dont know if you have any contact with the PTI members but the case of the murdered officer who caught Ayan Ali needs to be reopened. Nothing will give more confidence to honest people than the hanging of the murderers of that poor officer. His honesty should be saluted and his family compensated.

    Zardari has cleverly committed massive amounts of corruption in the past and gotten away with it due to leaving behind zero trail, evidence, murdering off witnesses, prosecution members or buying off people but his lady luck has got to run out at some point.

    I am not on twitter or on Facebook but if you can then raise the issue because the sacrifice of that officer must not be forgotten. He was murdered for doing his job and the culprits( AZ) must be brought to book.

    Both AZ and Ayyan Ali need to be on the dock for that murder. It was just incredibly blatant.

    Thats why i have raised this again. Sometimes in the desire to move on we forget that horrific crimes have been committed against the powerless to avoid justice. I will certainly keep prompting our man here Mian to raise this issue. If we catch this poors guys murderers then a PTI govt has made a tangible difference.

    Zardari tells SC he owns neither any property nor bank account outside Pakistan

    ISLAMABAD: Former president Asif Ali Zardari affirmed through an affidavit before the Supreme Court on Tuesday that he owns neither moveable or immovable property nor any bank account outside Pakistan.

    The affidavit was moved before the apex court which is hearing a petition of Advocate Feroz Shah Gilani, president of the Lawyers Foundation for Justice, in which he had named former presidents retired Gen Pervez Musharraf and Asif Zardari, former attorney general Malik Mohammad Qayyum and the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) as respondents.

    In his petition, Mr Gilani had pleaded before the court to order recovery of huge amounts of public money wasted by the respondents through unlawful means against the backdrop of the National Recon*ciliation Ordinance (NRO) in 2007.

    A three-judge Supreme Court bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar is expected to take up the case on Wednesday.

    On July 4, the apex court had asked for the details of assets of Pervez Musharraf, Asif Zardari and Malik Qayyum in addition to furnishing bank accounts and assets both inside and outside the country as well as investments made in offshore companies.

    The parties involved in the matter are also required to disclose before the court the details of assets of their spouses and children both in the country as well as abroad.

    Earlier, Mr Zardari in his reply had contended that no case of causing loss to the public exchequer or looting and plundering the national wealth had ever been proved against him in Pakistan or abroad.

    Likewise, Mr Zardari claimed that he had no role in the promulgation of the NRO because he was in jail when it was introduced. Cases against him were reopened when the NRO was set aside by the Supreme Court and all the cases were tried de-novo which resulted in his acquittal on merit.

    On Aug 8, NAB had told the Supreme Court that $60 million money laundering case against Mr Zardari before the Swiss courts could not be reopened since Pakistan’s appeal was time-barred. NAB also contended that no exact quantum of loss was available allegedly due to misappropriation of public money through unlawful means.

    The reply was furnished on behalf of NAB special prosecutor Chaudhry Faridul Hassan.

    In its reply, NAB also assured the court that if any determination was made as to the quantum of money misappropriated, the same would be implemented, honoured and adhered in letter and spirit.

    NAB had explained that an inquiry was conducted to probe into the role of Malik Qayyum, the outcome of which reflected that prima facie he did not commit any offence or misused his authority.

    The bureau, therefore, had to close its inquiry on Sept 17, 2012, against Malik Qayyum when it was found that whatever he did was in accordance with the existing law of the time i.e. the National Accountability Ordinance.

    NAB also explained that a number of corruption references against Mr Zardari were still pending in different courts namely ARY Gold case, Ursus Tractor Scheme case, pre-shipment inspection contract to Cotecna firm, pre-shipment inspection contract to SGS firm and assets case.

    On the other hand Pervez Musharraf in his reply pleaded that the NRO was promulgated in 2007 without having any mala fide or vested interest with an objective to end acrimony between different political parties and political conditions prevailing then.

    He contended that the NRO 2007 was promulgated by him as the then president on the advice of the government which was later declared by the apex court as void ab initio through its judgement in December 2009.

    Gen Musharraf argued that the NRO was aimed at fostering mutual trust and confidence amongst the holders of public office and removing the vestiges of political vendetta and victimisation and to make the election process more transparent and to amend certain laws in addition to connected matters.

    In his petition, Mr Gilani had contended that Gen Musharraf subverted the Constitution by declaring emergency followed by the promulgation of NRO, arbitrarily withdrawing criminal and corruption cases against the politicians, including Asif Zardari which caused huge financial loss to the exchequer.

    The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected the affidavits submitted by former presidents Asif Ali Zardari and retired Gen Pervez Musharraf, and ex-attorney general Malik Mohammad Qayyum regarding assets owned by them in Pakistan and abroad.

    While hearing a petition regarding the 2007 National Recon*ciliation Ordinance (NRO), a three-member bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Saqib Nisar ordered the three men to submit complete details of their assets and bank accounts held inside and outside the country in the past 10 years within three weeks.

    The trio has also been directed to disclose before the court the details of assets of their spouses and children both in the country as well as abroad.

    Nothing could be proven against Zardari: lawyer
    The counsel representing Zardari, Farooq H. Naek, argued before the bench today that the PPP co-chairman had spent nine years in jail but "nothing could be proven" against him. He said Zardari should get some sort of compensation for the nine-year prison sentence.

    At this, the CJP responded that Zardari could only achieve the reward in the form of clearance by the Supreme Court and that the prison sentence did not translate into an exemption from disclosing his assets.

    Justice Ijazul Ahsan remarked that political leaders should get the "blemishes on [their reputation] removed".

    The bench asked the counsel whether Zardari ever held bank accounts in his name, or in the names of his wife — slain former prime minister Benazir Bhutto — or children, in Switzerland. Naek replied that he would respond to the question after consulting Zardari.

    Rejecting the affidavit submitted by the former president, the CJP then ordered Zardari to submit details of all his local and foreign assets since 2007, including whether he owns or is the beneficial owner of any trust, or is the direct or indirect owner or shareholder of any bank account

    In his affidavit submitted on Tuesday, Zardari had affirmed that he owns neither moveable or immovable property nor any bank account outside Pakistan.

    The affidavit was moved before the apex court which is hearing a petition of Advocate Feroz Shah Gilani, president of the Lawyers Foundation for Justice, in which he had named Musharraf, Zardari, Qayyum and the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) as respondents.

    In his petition, Gilani had pleaded before the court to order recovery of huge amounts of public money wasted by the respondents through unlawful means against the backdrop of the NRO in 2007.

    Musharraf owns apartment in Dubai, 3 cars
    In his arguments, the lawyer representing Musharraf, Akhtar Shah, informed the court about the assets held by the former military dictator.

    A statement of assets and liabilities submitted by Musharraf to the court stated that the only property he owned abroad is an apartment in Downtown Dubai worth 5.4 million dirhams.

    According to the document, Musharraf owns three vehicles, including a 2015 model Mercedes worth 230,000 dirhams, a Tahoe Jeep 2017 model worth 150,000 dirhams and a Chevrolet Impala 2018 worth 130,000 dirhams.

    He has three foreign bank accounts holding 92,100 dirhams, 21,550 pounds and 268,653 dirhams.

    Justice Nisar, who was unconvinced by the details provided, wondered whether Musharraf could purchase the Dubai flat from "even the salary of his entire life". He said Musharraf should appear before the court in person and explain his assets.

    Shah maintained that Musharraf's foreign assets are from his days after stepping down as the president.

    The CJP asked the lawyer whether one could make so much money from giving lectures, which Musharraf is seen occasionally delivering.

    "Why don't I start giving lectures after retirement as well?" he wondered, tongue-in-cheek.

    The top judge then asked who owned the farmhouse in the Islamabad suburb of Chak Shahzad, to which the counsel responded that it was owned by Musharraf.

    The bench then ordered the counsel to submit details of assets held by Musharraf and his wife in Pakistan within three weeks.

    A banking court in Karachi on Friday granted an interim bail to former president Asif Ali Zardari in a money laundering case.

    Zardari had obtained a protective bail from the Islamabad High Court (IHC) in the case on August 18. The high court had directed the former president to appear before the trial court by Sep 3.

    The former president, along with his lawyer Farooq H. Naek, appeared before the court today and obtained an interim bail with a surety of Rs2 million.

    When asked by a reporter to comment on the "day by day worsening situation" for him, the PPP co-chairperson laughed off the question.

    The case was initially registered in 2015 against former Pakistan Stock Exchange chairman Hussain Lawai, who is widely believed to be close to former president Asif Ali Zardari.

    Later, seven individuals, including Zardari and Talpur, were said to have been found involved in using those accounts for suspicious transactions which totalled Rs35 billion. The accounts were allegedly used to channel funds received through kickbacks.

    Last month, Lawai and banker Taha Raza were detained and booked for allegedly facilitating the opening of 29 ‘fake’ accounts through which suspicious transactions were made to different companies, including M/s Zardari Group.

    Zardari's sister Faryal Talpur had also obtained an interim pre-arrest bail in the case in the sum of Rs2 million.

    Both the siblings are facing corruption charges relating to fake accounts and fictitious bank transactions worth Rs35 billion. Both Zardari and Talpur face allegations that they had illegally channelled funds through the said accounts in connivance with the chief executive officers of major banks.

    A few days ago, the siblings had also appeared before a joint investigation team of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in Islamabad to record their statement in the multi-billion rupee money laundering and fake bank accounts case open against them.
