PAKISTAN: The accountability court on Monday further extended the remand of Pakistan People’s Party leader Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur for 10 days.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) officials produced the former president for a hearing in the money laundering case earlier today.

During the hearing, the anti-graft watchdog sought a two weeks extension in the remand of the sibling duo— which was turned down the court.

However, the court agreed to extend the remand by 10 days and adjourned the next hearing to August 10.

The former president said he was being probed over allegation of millions of rupees embezzlement but no one questioned Abdul Hafeez Sheikh.

Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur are prime suspects in four cases under NAB’s watch concerning transactions worth hundreds of millions of rupees to the two leaders’ private companies, allegedly, through fake bank accounts.
