Former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur failed to appear on Saturday before the FIA’s joint investigation team formed to investigate a Rs34 billion money laundering scandal.
The two PPP leaders were summoned to the FIA office at 11am on Saturday. Their lawyers appeared on their behalf and submitted replies to the JIT.
The counsel said that Faryal could not appear before the investigation team as she was appearing before a banking court in the same case.
We have asked for new dates, said lawyer Muzammil Qureshi.
Faryal appeared before a banking court in the same case and submitted a surety bond of Rs2 million.
On Friday, she was granted pre-arrest bail till August 16 and was directed to submit the Rs2 million surety bond.
