Accountability court summons Asif Zardari
10 December, 2013
RAWALPINDI: The accountability court has summoned former president Asif Ali Zardari.
Accountability court judge Muhammad Bashir issued the summons while hearing five NAB references against Zardari on Monday.
Farooq H Naek, the counsel of Zardari, said his client faces security threats. The references against Zardari were reopened because after end of his presidential immunity NRO was declared null and void.
It is expected that he will be indicted on next hearing in the Polo Ground Reference. The hearing was adjourned until December 23. The accountability court had reopened references against Zardari that were deferred as he enjoyed immunity during his tenure as the president.
The court had earlier released several of the co-accused in the references against Zardari.
