Former Pakistan president Zardari moves Islamabad High Court to quash references

Web Report/Islamabad Former Pakistan president Asif Ali Zardari on Monday filed a petition in the Islamabad High Court (IHC), seeking to quash the money laundering and Park Lane references filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), The Express Tribune reported. Zardari pleaded he was not guilty in the said references and should be acquitted. He prayed that references be quashed as they are "without jurisdiction, illegal, unlawful, null and void ab initio". In September, IHC had extended Zardari's interim bail till October 15 and directed NAB to submit a reply again. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Pakistan People's Party Chairman, called the cases and court appearances during the Covid-19 pandemic as victimisation of the opposition.
