KARACHI:  Former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister, Faryal Talpur, appeared before the banking court in Karachi today in a case pertaining to money laundering of billions.

The court after the hearing extended till December 10 the interim bail granted earlier to the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leaders.

The money laundering case is also being probed by a joint investigation team formed by the Supreme Court (SC).

Moreover, 32 people are being investigated by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in connection to money laundering from fictitious accounts. Former President Zardari’s close aide Hussain Lawai was also arrested in July in connection with the case.

In August, the PPP co-chairman’s other close aide and Omni Group chairman Anwar Majeed and his son, Abdul Ghani, were also arrested by FIA. However, Majeed’s three other sons have been granted interim bail.
