AC turns down Talpur’s plea over unfreezing bank accounts

ISLAMABAD: An accountability court has rejected a petition filed by Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Faryal Talpur in the fake bank accounts case.
AC Judge Azam Khan conducted the hearing in which the judge ordered to hold Faryal Talpur’s bank accounts as she requested in plea to unfreeze the accounts of her children. AC reserved the verdict of her filed plea earlier on 10th March.
The lawyer of Talpur, Farooq H. Naek during the hearing pleaded that freezing an account was against the law before the approval of inquiry. However, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor, on the other hand, opposed the plea by stating that Faryal’s plea was not on merit.
