NAB summons Bilawal, Zardari in private company probe

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto and PPP co-chairman Asif Zardari
Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto has been summoned on December 13 in the capacity of a shareholder of a private company, by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

PPP co-chairman Asif Zardari has also been asked to appear before the anti-corruption body.

Sources said Bilawal is a shareholder in a company, Park Enclave.

Bilawal is unlikely to appear and will instead be represented by his legal counsel Farooq H Naek, sources added.

Senior PPP leader and former senator Farhatullah Babar, confirming the news, termed the step as part of NAB’s political agenda.

Such steps only go to expose NAB’s political objectives, he said.

Babar added that the cases in which Bilawal has been summoned are in the timeline when the PPP chairman was merely a year old.

Bilawal was also sent a “tough” questionnaire early this week by a joint investigation team in a fake accounts case, in which his father, Zardari, and aunt, Faryal Talpur, have also appeared several times.
