ISLAMABAD : National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Friday has filed Park Lane reference against former president and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari in accountability court.

According to details, the anti-corruption watchdog has nominated 17 accused including Asif Ali Zardari in the case.

The accused include Iqbal Memon, Younus Kidwai, former Pakistan Stock Exchange chairperson Hussain Lawai and Omni Group chief Abdul Ghani Majeed.

After the initial probe, the court will issue notices to respondents and fix a date for the hearing.

On June 10, PPP Co-Chairman Asif Zardari was arrested by NAB hours after the Islamabad High Court (IHC) recalled the pre-arrest bail granted to him and his sister Faryal Talpur in the fake accounts case.

The cases against Zardari are part of the investigation being conducted by the anti-graft body in pursuance of the Supreme Court’s verdict in the money laundering of billions through fake accounts case wherein it was forwarded a joint investigation team (JIT) report.

Other suspects in the investigation include Omni Group’s Anwar Majeed and his son Abdul Ghani, Lawai and Summit Bank Senior Vice-President Taha Raza.
