Supplementary Reference filed against former president Asif Ali Zardari and others with objections to the National Accountability Bureau has been returned on Wednesday.

According to the details, the registrar office has told the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) that the supplementary reference filed in the Park Lane case was not properly arranged. It asked the NAB to resubmit it after necessary rectifications.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) yesterday had filed a supplementary reference against former president Asif Ali Zardari and 19 other suspects in Park Lane case.

In its reference, the anti-corruption watchdog had alleged that Zardari got a loan of Rs1.5 billion released for another of his front company and the money was later transferred for his personal use through fake bank accounts.

It should be noted that Former President Asif Ali Zardari and former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani will be indicted in the Toshakhana reference on Sept 9.

Accountability Court of Islamabad ruled that former president and former prime minister will be indicted in the Toshakhana reference on Sept 9.

Accountability Judge Asghar Ali stopped the process to declare former prime minister Nawaz Sharif a proclaimed offender over his perpetual absence from the court’s proceedings in the case until Aug 25 after he was informed that the PML-N supreme leader’s arrest warrants have been challenged in the Islamabad High Court.

The accountability court also summoned Omni Group owner Anwar Majeed and his son Abdul Ghani Majeed, named in the case, to appear on the next hearing on Sept 9 for indictment and directed all accused to furnish a surety bond of Rs2 million each.
