Islamabad: PPP Leader Faryal Talpur and sister of former president Asif Ali Zardari filed a separate petition in the Supreme Court of Pakistan on Wednesday against the Supreme court’s decision pertaining to fake bank accounts case.
Supreme Court, in the wake of Joint Investigation Team report, directed the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on January 7 to conduct a detailed inquiry into the case and finish it within two months.
The plea was filed by Farooq H. Naek, who is also fighting the same case for Mr. Asif Ali Zardari, the chairperson of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).
Faryal talpur mentioned in her petition that Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) couldn’t find any proof in the case despite the detailed probing and cross-checking various institutions. “The order of the Supreme Court may affect the fair trial process. The direction to forward the case to the NAB is illegal and uncalled-for,” she pleaded.
“I also appeared before the joint investigation team and submitted my statement,” she said.
Top court has also accepted that JIT could not bring reasonable evidence.
Previously, Zardari and Faryal filed a plea and expressed that JIT was constituted on the suggestions of FIA and their version of story was not added into the report that was sent to SC.
The petition clearly mentioned that the “impugned order suffered from errors floating on the surface of the record”.
