The accountability court has adjourned the hearing of NAB references against ex- president Asif Ali Zardari till January 9. A judge of accountability court Muhammad Bashir heard the case relating to the 5 references against Zardari.
The court couldn’t indict the accused in polo ground reference due to his absence. During the course of hearings, lawyer for Zardari, Farooq H Naek said his client had security problems. The cases against Zardari include polo ground, SGS, Cotecna, ARY and Ursus tractors. The court had already acquitted the other charged in these cases.
The accountability court took a suo motu action and reopened 5 cases against Zardari in October, 2013. Earlier, the references were deferred because he enjoyed constitutional immunity during his period as President of Pakistan.
