ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The accountability court framed charges against PPP co-chairman Asif Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur in the mega money laundering case on Monday. However, the accused pleaded not guilty. On the other hand, a petition challenging the trial of the fake accounts case was filed in the Islamabad High Court. In the petition, Asif Zardari appealed to court to acquit in the mega money laundering case. He also requested the court to stop the trial immediately. It has been contended that the National Accountability Court (NAB) has no authority to probe the fake accounts case. Meanwhile, the court adjourned the proceeding till October 5 to frame charges against the accused in the Park Lane and Thatta Water Supply references.
