Court orders foolproof security for Zaradari’s appearance; exemption for one day granted
RAWALPINDI (92 News) – An accountability court on Wednesday ordered foolproof security for the former president Asif Zardari for his appearance in an assets’ reference.
As per reports, Asif’s counsel Farooq H Naek appeared before the court citing security risks for his client’s absence. “Security is penetrable,” he said. “There could be a bomb here.”
In response, the judge ordered the Punjab government take proper steps to ensure security for the PPP co-chairperson. The court granted a day’s exemption from appearance before the court. He is expected to be presented before the court tomorrow.
Earlier last week, the court exempted the former president from appearance on account of security risks.
