Islamabad, October 5
An anti-corruption court on Monday charged former Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari in two graft cases, a week after he was indicted in a major money laundering case.
Zardari, 63, the co-chairman of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and husband of the country’s first woman Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, was present at the Islamabad-based court and pleaded not guilty.
During the hearing, the accountability court indicted 19 others in the Park Lane case and 15 others in the Thatta water supply case.
The court charged Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur in a money laundering case on September 28. The court has rejected his plea seeking acquittal in all three cases. —PTI
