As per sources, the NAB has accused Asif Ali Zardari, co-chairman of PPP of buying an apartment for $530,000. Earlier Zardari had sought time to file a reply from the NAB in the New York flat case.
It has been reported that the former president has now submitted his reply through his lawyers.
Zardari negated the charges of buying an apartment in Manhattan. “I had sold out the apartment the same year I purchased it,” he stated.
“He didn’t hold any public office when he bought the flat, adding he went to the US for treatment. He also accused the anti-corruption watchdog body of subjecting him to vengeful action,” the sources mentioned.
Earlier, the IHC had granted pre-arrest bail to PPP co-chairman and former president in New York property case. IHC directed Asif Ali Zardari to submit surety bonds of 0.5 million rupees and barred National Accountability Bureau from arresting the former president.
