Court to indict Asif Zardari in another reference on August 4

ISLAMABAD: An accountability court will indict former president Asif Ali Zardari and others in the Thatta Water Supply Scheme reference on 4th August.
During the hearing on Tuesday, the judge directed all accused named in the reference to appear in court on August 4 for indictment.
National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has filed the case against the former president as a supplementary reference in the fake bank accounts and mega-money laundering scam.
The case pertains to illegally awarding a contract by the Special Initiative Department for a water supply scheme in Thatta to a private contractor.
Earlier this month, an accountability court deferred indictment of Asif Ali Zardari, his sister Faryal Talpur and other accused in the mega money laundering case until 24th July.
Judge Azam Khan had heard the reference filed by NAB against the PPP co-chairman, his sister, and close aides, Omni Group head Anwar Majeed and Hussain Lawai among other accused on July 7.
During the hearing, the bureau’s prosecutor requested more time for further investigation before the accused’s indictment which was granted and the case was deferred.
The court was supposed to indict Zardari in Park Lane reference on July 6 but it was delayed after his counsel Advocate Farooq H Naek filed a last-minute application challenging the trial proceedings.
