ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Monday announced on Monday that the party will file bail plea for his ailing father former president Asif Ali Zardari on medical grounds.
It is noteworthy that the PPP decided to submit the bail petition of Zardari days after former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was allowed to travel abroad for medical treatment on a bail plea.
Speaking to the journalists outside the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) hospital, the PPP chairman mentioned that the PPP will not retreat from its political point of view and file a petition until tomorrow.
“After completing all the legal formalities, PPP will likely to file the bail petition in the court by tomorrow,” Bilawal Bhutto announced. He also said that Zardari was not agreed to file the bail plea but on the request of his sister Aseefa Bhutto, Zardari has changed his mind.
He also urged the masses to pray for health of Asif Zardari’s health condition, which health condition was deteriorating day by day.
Earlier today, Bilawal Bhutto met with his father who is currently under treatment at the PIMS.
Currently, Asif Ali Zardari was currently in NAB’s custody in the fake bank accounts and Park Lane Reference cases.
Earlier this month, an accountability court earlier dismissed a plea seeking permission to move former president Zardari to Karachi for medical treatment.
Zardari's counsel Farooq H Naik had filed an application seeking better facilities for Faryal Talpur — a PPP leader and Zardari's sister.
Meanwhile, an argument ensued in the court among the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor and Sardar Ayaz Latif Khosa
, representing Asif Ali Zardari.
Khosa demanded that his client be shifted to a hospital in Karachi rather than being kept in the hospitals of Islamabad, Rawalpindi.
The court and NAB prosecutor both maintained that such orders were the prerogative of the executive body and only they could make a decision on the request.
