ISLAMABAD (92 News) – An Accountability court (AC) in Islamabad on Tuesday has reserved verdict on Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) lawmaker Faryal Talpur’s plea seeking restoration of her bank accounts. The court will now announce its reserved verdict on plea seeking restoration of bank accounts of Faryal Talpur on March 20. During the hearing, the plaintiff’s lawyer Farooq H. Naek stated that freezing bank accounts before the approval of inquiry is against the law over which, National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor assured that the accounts were seized as per designated rules. The claimant’s counsel further requested the court to unfreeze bank accounts of Faryal Talpur. Subsequently, the court has reserved the decision and adjourned the hearing. Earlier in August 2018, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had named Zardari, Talpur, Omni Group chairman Anwar Majeed, his sons and over 10 others as suspects in an interim charge sheet filed in a banking court. The case was transferred to Islamabad after a Karachi banking court accepted the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) transfer request filed following the Supreme Court judgment forwarding the joint investigation team (JIT) report to the bureau with directions to investigate and file references.
