    Asif Ali Zardari's lawyer denies non-bailable arrest warrants being issued for client [Update #6]

    KARACHI: A local banking court on Friday issued non-bailable arrest warrants for former president Asif Zardari and other absconding suspects in an ongoing probe against a multi-billion money laundering scam.

    Warrants were issued for suspects absconding in the case including Pakistan Peoples Party co-chairman Zardari, Namar Majeed, Aslam Masood, Arif Khan, Naseer Abdullah Hussain, Adnan Javed, Mohammad Umair, Iqbal, Azam Wazir Khan, Zain Malik, and Mustafa Zulqarnain.

    The court ordered the suspects to be arrested and presented before it by September 4.

    The Federal Investigation Agency is investigating 32 people in relation to money laundering from fictitious accounts, including Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur. Zardari’s close aide Hussain Lawai was arrested last month in connection with the probe.

    The banking court hearing the case on Thursday approved an extension in Talpur's interim bail until the next hearing on September 4.

    Interim bails for some others, including Shehzad Jatoi and Sher Muhammad Mugheri, were also extended until the same date.

    A decision on the bail of Lawai and Taha Raza was adjourned until August 18.

    The court also approved transit remand of the two under-custody accused Anwar Majeed and Abdul Ghani Majeed, on the FIA's request.

    Over 20 ‘benami’ accounts at some private banks were opened in 2013, 2014 and 2015 from where transactions worth billions of rupees were made, according to sources. The amount, according to FIA sources, is said to be black money gathered from various kickbacks, commissions and bribes.

    A banking court in Karachi on Friday issued non-bailable warrants of arrest against PPP co-chairman and former president Asif Ali Zardari in the fake bank accounts scam case, Radio Pakistan reported.

    The court also issued non-bailable arrest warrants against other absconding suspects, including Nasser Abdullah Lootah, Aslam Masood, Nimr Majeed, Arif Khan, Adnan Javed, Mohammad Umair, Mohammad Iqbal Arain, Azam Wazir Khan, Zain Malik and Mustafa Zulqernain.

    While hearing the case relating to the money laundering probe, the court directed authorities to arrest and present Zardari and other suspects before it by September 4.

    However, PPP spokesperson Farhatullah Babar issued a statement in which he quoted Zardari's counsel Farooq H. Naek as saying that no warrants against the former president have been issued.

    Article continues after ad

    The Fede*ral Investigation Agency (FIA) had declared Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur, along with 18 other suspects, as absconders in an interim charge sheet filed in the case. Talpur had, however, obtained a bail against her arrest.

    The fake accounts case revolves around a 2015 inquiry into suspicious transactions when 29 ‘benami’ accounts were identified, 16 of them in the Summit Bank, eight in the Sindh Bank and five in the United Bank Limited.

    Seven individuals were found involved in suspiciously transacting Rs35 billion. Hussain Lawai, former chairman of the Pakistan Stock Exchange and a close aide of Zardari, Omni Group of Companies chairman Khawaja Anvar Majeed and his brother Ghani Majeed, and co-accused Taha Raza – head of the Summit Bank’s corporate unit – have been arrested in the case.

    The court extended the physical remand of Majeed and his son Ghani Majeed until August 24 after they were presented for the hearing by the FIA.

    The FIA prosecutor had sought a 14-day remand of the suspects for investigation, saying they are accused of laundering billions of rupees through fake bank accounts.

    Farooq H. Naek, the counsel representing Majeed, opposed the plea for remand. After hearing both sides, the court approved a week-long extension in the remand.

    Naek said it was Zardari's discretion to decide whether he wants to join the investigation or not, adding that the former president has "always faced the law".

    Zardari is ready to cooperate with the FIA, he said.

    Former president Asif Ali Zardari was on Saturday granted two weeks' protective bail by the Islamabad High Court (IHC), a day after a banking court had issued arrest warrants against his name.

    The PPP co-chairman secured bail in a Rs4.14 billion money laundering case by depositing surety bonds worth Rs500,000. His plea, filed earlier today, was heard by Justice Miangul Hasan Aurangzeb.

    During the hearing, Zardari's lawyer, Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan, said his client wished to appear before the banking court and cooperate with the Federal Investigation Agency's (FIA) investigation, but feared arrest.

    Zardari was accompanied by his daughter, Asifa Bhutto, and Leader of the Opposition in the Senate Sherry Rehman.

    The money laundering case had initially been registered against former Pakistan Stock Exchange chairman Hussain Lawai, who is widely believed to be a close aide to Zardari, and other bankers in connection with an ongoing probe into a massive money laundering scam.

    Lawai and other bankers stand accused of facilitating the opening of 29 ‘fake’ accounts in Summit Bank, Sindh Bank and United Bank Limited, where “beneficiaries of the Sindh government” had deposited Rs35bnm, which were subsequently transferred to different accounts.

    In the interim charge sheet filed on July 21, Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur’s names had appeared in the list of absconding accused persons along with their addresses.

    Not sure how the lawyer denied this was true.

    FIA conducts raid on Zardari aide's sugar mill in Badin

    A Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) team probing a money laundering case against former president Asif Ali Zardari and others on Sunday conducted a raid on a sugar mill owned by a PPP leader's ally in Badin district, and seized documents and arms.

    According to a senior official of the agency, the sugar mill in question is owned by Omni Group Chairman Anwar Majeed — a close aide of Zardari.

    During the raid, the official said, the FIA team recovered seven Kalashnikovs, four semi-automatic rifles, two digital video recorders, 27 hard discs, one virtual storage device and financial files and ledgers.

    All seized weapons were handed over to local police for verification purpose, the official added.

    Another FIA official pointed out that the purpose of the raid was to recover documents to ascertain wealth statements of Majeed — one of the co-accused in the Rs35 billion fake bank accounts scam.

    The official further said that during the initial probe it was discovered that the Omni Group owns 10 sugar mills, several companies and some agriculture farms spread over thousands of acres in Sindh.

    Zardari 'visibly agitated' during FIA interrogation

    It was a battle of nerves.

    After evading the Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) summons several times earlier, former president and Pakistan Peoples Party co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardai and his sister, MPA Faryal Talpur, finally appeared before the investigation team in Islamabad on Monday to record their statements in the Rs35 billion money laundering case.

    During the interrogation that lasted around 25 minutes, a visibly agitated Zardari smoked one cigarette after another as his sister tried to calm him down, narrated one FIA team member who was present during the meeting.

    At the onset, the former president and his sister, who is currently a member of the Sindh Assembly, arrived at the FIA’s offices accompanied by their counsels and other party leaders on Monday morning. The FIA team informed the suspects that they would be questioned without the presence of their counsels. The counsels were subsequently moved to a separate room, leaving Zardari and Talpur alone with the FIA investigators.

    According to the FIA official, who asked not to be named, Zardari was visibly agitated throughout the interrogation. Talpur, on the other hand, looked more composed and on several occasions, signaled to her brother to stop talking to the investigators. She also inquired about the names and designations of the members of the JIT team, as well as how many belonged to Sindh and how many were from Punjab.

    The FIA’s joint interrogation team tasked to question the duo was led by Additional Director Najaf Qali Mirza. For his part, Zardari kept insisting that the inquiry was initiated by Mirza over a personal grudge. Mirza, on the other hand, reminded the former president that the inquiry had been initiated well before his deputation at the FIA and that the investigation was being conducted strictly on merit.

    On one occasion, the officials asked Talpur to leave the room so that Zardari could be questioned separately. Talpur refused to oblige, however, and remarked that the FIA had sent joint notices for the investigation which warranted her presence.

    Throughout the interrogation, the duo kept insisting that the FIA hand over a questionnaire which they would respond to in due time. Talpur told the team that Zardari had stepped down from the post of director of the Zardari Group in 2008. As such, he had no connection with the accounts of the Zardari Group, she said.

    A member of the JIT then quizzed Zardari about the details of his assets, income and taxes. In response, Zardari said he had paid Rs20.6 million in taxes in the last fiscal year. Before he could say anything further, however, Talpur interrupted and asked him to stop talking. She reiterated her demand for the team to provide a questionnaire so that responses could be filed in writing.

    At one point during the interrogation, Zardari complained of feeling thirsty. AD Mirza immediately ordered the staff to bring some water. Talpur, however, interrupted again and said that water could be arranged from their own vehicle.

    Talpur kept demanding that her counsel Farooq H Naik be allowed to enter the room. The 25-minute session ended on the note that the duo would be provided questionnaires to which they can file their responses.

    However, both PPP leaders were told they could be summoned at any time at a later stage.
