The FIA has asked, for the third time, former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur to appear before it in Islamabad in a money laundering case on August 4.
Zardari’s aide Anwar Majeed and his two sons, AG Majeed and Nimar Majeed, have also been summoned.
They are all suspects in a money laundering case involving over Rs34 billion funneled through fake bank accounts at three local banks – Sindh Bank, UBL and Summit Bank.
Another of Zardari’s aides, Hussain Lawai, who is the vice-chairperson of Summit Bank, has already been arrested in the case.
The FIA had earlier put Zardari and Talpur’s names on the ECL, but the Supreme Court had ordered that their names be removed.
