‘Mega Money Laundering Case’ NAB arrests Faryal Talpur
ISLAMABAD: A National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team arrested Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Faryal Talpur from Zardari House, Islamabad in a case with a case pertaining to money laundering through fake accounts.
According to information, a six-member NAB team reached the federal capital’s Zardari House and took Ms. Faryal Talpur into custody. The lady will be presented in the court tomorrow.
A notification issued by the anti-graft authority states that Faryal Talpur’s own residence will be declared sub-jail where her medical examination will be conducted before being presented in the court.
A five-member NAB team including female investigators is at Zardari House, Islamabad “for the purposes of detention of accused under the NAO, 1999”, according to a notification issued by the accountability watchdog.
The anti-graft watchdog had issued arrest warrants of the PPP leader and sister of former president Asif Ali Zardari late night on Thursday, days after her brother and PPP co-chairman was arrested in the fake accounts case.
Asif Ali Zardari was arrested on June 11 soon after his and Faryal’s pre-arrest bail plea was rejected by an Islamabad High Court bench hearing the fake accounts case. Faryal Talpur, however, was not arrested on June 11 as her warrants had not been issued.
