He has been accused of laundering money
An accountability court in Islamabad has summoned former president Asif Ali Zardari on May 20 in a fake accounts case.
NAB had filed a fifth reference against the PPP co-chairperson on April 27 and accused him of laundering Rs8 billion.
He has been accused of working with Mushtaq Ahmed, the former stenographer of President House. Ahmed reportedly opened a joint account with a private housing company in which laundered money was deposited. Zardari used the same money to purchase a house in Karachi’s Clifton, NAB claimed.
Notices have been issued to both Zardari and Ahmed.
