A banking court in Karachi issued on Friday a warrant for former president Asif Ali Zardari’s arrest.
The court was hearing a money laundering case. The same court granted the FIA physical remand of Anwar Majeed and his son Abdul Ghani Majeed till August 24.
He is being investigated in a case of money laundering of Rs35 billion through fake bank accounts at three local banks.
Zardari’s sister Faryal Talpur was granted bail before arrest. The FIA declared Zardari and 20 other suspects absconders in the case.
However, Zardari’s lawyer Farooq H Naek refuted this and said that the court has not issued a warrant for the former president’s arrest.
