Strict security measures finalised for Zardari, Faryal’s court hearing


ISLAMABAD: Strict security measures have been finalised at the accountability court where Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leaders Asif Ali Zardari and Faryal Talpur will appear in the money laundering case on Monday (tomorrow).

As many as 2,000 police personnel will be stationed along with 200 personnel from Punjab Rangers.

DIG Operations Waqaruddin Syed said that no unauthorized person will be allowed to enter in the NAB courts and no one will be allowed to take laws into their hands.

Police and PPP party workers clashed outside the accountability court on March 20 – the day when Zardari and Bilawal reached the courts to record their statements.

Former President Asif Ali Zardari, his sister Faryal Talpur and other accused are facing an inquiry into the money laundering scam involving over Rs35 billion money laundered through fake bank accounts.
