NA speaker issues production orders for Asif Zardari, Saad Rafique


National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser issued on Wednesday the production orders for PPP leader Asif Ali Zardari and PML-N leader Khawaja Saad Rafique.

Both leaders will attend the session in Parliament today (Thursday). However, the production orders for two other MNAs, Ali Wazir and Mohsin Dawar, have not been issued.

The two men were arrested in connection with a skirmish at an army check post in North Waziristan’s Kharqamar on May 26.

NAB had arrested Zardari after the Islamabad High Court rejected his bail application in a money laundering case. He was taken into custody from Zardari House Islamabad.

Rafique, who is currently in NAB’s custody, was arrested in December last year for his alleged involvement in Paragon housing scheme scandal.

The production order has been issued for them to attend the budget session.

Zardari was also granted special permission by an accountability court to meet his children at the NAB Rawalpindi office. Bilawal, Bakhtawar and Aseefa met the former president and were given instructions on the upcoming APC and their course of action.

Bilawal also reportedly briefed Zardari on his meetings with PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz and JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman.
