PPP leader Saeed Ghani has dismissed charges of money laundering against party leaders Asif Ali Zardari and Faryal Talpur.
The FIA has filed a case against Zardari and Talpur, alleging that millions were illegally transferred to Dubai. The agency claims that Rs150 million were transferred by Talpur to a Zardari Group account via cheque in 2014.
“The amount was in Pakistani currency. It bore all the necessary signatures and was from Faryal Talpur’s company. So, how can one say that it was an attempt to illegally transfer money to Dubai?” asked Ghani said at a press conference. He was accompanied by PPP leader Nafisa Shah.
Ghani said the FIA is falsely implicating the PPP leadership in the case. “Why was a ‘dead case’ reopened just before the elections?” he questioned.
He claimed that the director general of the FIA, Bashir Memon, is victimising the PPP after the defeat of his brother Naseer Memon, who was a candidate of the Grand Democratic Alliance from PS-58 Matiari.
