Supreme Court of Pakistan admits Asif Zardari plea to transfer NAB cases from Islamabad’s accountability courts to Karachi. The case hearing will start soon.
After an initial hearing in his chamber, Justice Umar Ata Bandial ignored the SC Registrar Office’s doubts on the plea. The SC judge directed that the case be fixed before a bench for hearing within two weeks.
Asif Ali Zardari through his counsel Farooq H Naek challenged the registrar office objections’. On November 3, he approached the Supreme Court, requesting the court to transfer the graft cases filed against him by the NAB from Islamabad’s courts to similar courts in Karachi due to illness.
He stated in his plea that he can’t appear in accountability courts in Islamabad due to his illness as he was suffering from various ailments and had been critically ill. The Court has accepted Asif Zardari plea to hear the case.
