ISLAMABAD: Co-chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and former president Asif Ali Zardari on Wednesday excused himself from appearing before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) by stating his busy schedule, in the fake accounts case, citing sources, ARY News reported.
This is the second time, the former president excused himself from presenting before the anti-graft watchdog body authority.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had summoned Zardari to appear before Combined Investigation Team (CIT) of the bureau for questioning in the fake bank accounts case.
Previously, Zardari was summoned by NAB on May 23 but he didn’t appear on the pretext of busy schedule. He wrote a letter to the bureau, stating that he could not appear owing to his busy schedule.
He requested the anti-graft watchdog to set another date for his appearance before it.
It is noteworthy that Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur have obtained bail from the Islamabad High Court (IHC) in almost all cases being probed against them by NAB.
The bureau has already filed references in cases related to money laundering through fake bank accounts, Pink Residency and illegal award of water supply schemes.
