ISLAMABAD: An accountability court has extended physical remand of former president and PPP Cochairman Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur till August 8 in fake bank accounts and Park Lane Estate Company cases.
Judge Muhammad Bashir ordered National Accountability Bureau to present both the accused before the court on eighth of the next month.
During the court proceedings, NAB had requested 10-day physical remand of the PPP co-chairman and five-day physical remand of Faryal Talpur.
Asif Zardari’s counsel Farooq H Naek requested the court it would be better if the two are presented in the court the same day.
During hearing, Zardari’s defense counsel Latif Khosa pleaded with the court to extend the remand till August 19 due to Eid-ul-Azha holidays.
After hearing arguments from both sides, Justice Bashir remarked that the remand could only be extended for 15 days at one time.
