Fake accounts scandal: NAB files another reference against Asif Zardari
April 27, 2021

ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Tuesday filed another reference against PPP co-chairman Asif Zardari.

The reference pertaining to money laundering worth Rs 8 billion has been filed against the former president.

Mushtaq Ahmed, a former stenographer at Aiwan-e-Sadr, has been nominated as the co-accused in the reference.

Last month, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) had approved the bail of PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari in the fake accounts case.

The NAB had accused Zardari of carrying out suspicious transactions worth Rs 8 billion. The court had approved his bail after reviewing the report of the medical board in the case. The board was formed to look at Zardari’s medical reports and then submit a report on them.
