Asif Ali Zardari, the former president of Pakistan and co-chairman of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), has been ordered to appear before an accountability court on September 29.
It is involved in a graft investigation involving dubious transactions totaling more than Rs8 billion.
Zardari has been served with a subpoena, which requires him to appear in court at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday. The indictment names him as a co-accused as well as other individuals. In this case, the reference was filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
The former President of Pakistan, Asif Ali Zardari, is accused of engaging in transactions totaling more than Rs8 billion during his tenure in office. In addition, he used fictitious accounts to conduct transactions in accordance with the reference.
Mushtaq Ahmed, one of his aides, placed the money into a fictitious account. They also utilised the money to acquire expensive properties in a prestigious neighbourhood of Karachi later on.
During his time at Aiwan-e-Sadar, Ahmed worked as a stenographer from 2009 until 2013. Because of his persistent absence from the hearings, he has been declared a fugitive from justice in the case.
