Meanwhile, the Islamabad High Court has taken up NAB’s appeal against Zardari’s acquittal in two NAB references in 2014. A two-member bench will hear the case on April 18.

The accountability court absolved him in the Polo Ground reference on May 28, 2014 and in the Ursus tractor reference on December 12, five years ago. NAB challenged the accountability court’s judgment to acquit Zardari.
