NA issues production order for Zardari, Rafique
ISLAMABAD: National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser yesterday issued a production order to NAB to produce former president Asif Ali Zardari and PML-N leader Khawaja Saad Rafique in the ongoing budget session of the Parliament.
The two leaders are being investigated by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in graft cases.
The PPP co-chairman was arrested on June 10 after Islamabad High Court rejected his plea, seeking an extension in their interim bail in the fake bank accounts case.
The case pertains to transactions worth hundreds of millions of rupees through fake bank accounts.
Asif Zardari denied the charges.
Meanwhile, no production order has been issued for two other detained MNAs Ali Wazir and Mohsin Dawar. They were taken into custody after being accused of leading a mob attack on an army checkpost in Khar Qamar area in North Waziristan.
