The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Thursday issued arrest warrants for former president Asif Ali Zardari over suspicious transaction worth Rs8 billion in the fake accounts case. According to Express, NAB Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal signed the arrest warrants. Meanwhile, a two-member bench of the Islamabad High Court (IHC), presided by Justice Aamer Farooq, would hear Zardari’s interim-bail plea today. The court had sought arguments from Zardari’s lawyer and NAB. The anti-graft body had filed a written reply in IHC which stated that the former premier is required for investigation. Zardari is facing multiple corruption cases that had stemmed from a mega-money laundering scandal, which came into the limelight in 2018. Meanwhile, the federal government sought IHC permission to publish proclamation of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in two leading newspapers of the United Kingdom (UK) for ‘effective service’. The PML-N supremo was declared a proclaimed offender earlier in September and had refused multiple times to receive the arrest warrants issued in his name. The arrest warrants were sent twice by-hand and once via Britain’s Royal Mail.
