NRO case: Zardari submits review petition as details of assets summoned

ISLAMABAD: Former president and Pakistan People’s Party co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari filed a review petition on Tuesday against the Supreme Court verdict summoning details of his assets in relation to he National Reconciliation Ordinance case.
On August 29, the apex court had summoned details of the former president’s assets from the past 10 years while hearing a petition related to the NRO, which was passed by Musharraf in 2007.
The review petition was filed by Zardari’s lawyer Farooq H Naik.
In the petition, it was said that the PPP co-chairman was already acquitted from the cases in the National Accountability Bureau and there are no documents present related to their assets.
The petition further stated that under the law, asset details of a person cannot be summoned and it is a violation of basic rights.
The plea said that to date no corruption cases have been proved against the former president.
In the petition, it was requested that the apex court should review its earlier verdict in the case.
On Wednesday, the Supreme Court sought a 10-year record of the assets and foreign and local bank accounts owned by former presidents Pervez Musharraf and Asif Ali Zardari.
