Zardari appears before NAB in Harish and Company case

Accountability court adjourns fake accounts case till July 8

ISLAMABAD: Former president and president of PPP-P Asif Ali Zardari Thursday appeared before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in connection with the Harish and Company probe, which is part of its ongoing investigation in the fake accounts and money laundering case.
According to the accountability watchdog, Harish and Company had taken a contract for water supply from the Special Initiative Department of Sindh but no work was done on the project. It is further alleged that these funds were used to meet the expenses of Naudero House.
NAB officials claim that Harish and Company was the front company to Park Lane Estate which led to a loss of Rs60 million to the national exchequer.
Talking to newsmen Farooq H Naek, the lawyer for Asif Ali Zardari said his client had nothing to do with Harish and Company. He added that the even the reference did not include the name of the former president, yet his client was summoned.
Naek further said Asif Ali Zardari wasn’t a director rather a shareholder in Park Lane. “Park Lane mortgaged its property and took a loan. Zardari was not aware of this. It was discovered in the JIT that the property had been mortgaged.”
Naek added that Zardari had went to the court against the directors over the decision to mortgage the property.
According to Naek, no questionnaire had been handed to Asif Ali Zardari.
