An accountability court on Monday extended the physical remand of former president Asif Ali Zardari and other key accused by 14 days in the fake bank accounts and money laundering case.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had produced the former president to court amid strict security measures.

Accountability Court No I took up the case for the first time since Law Ministry was moved for removal of accountability court judge Mohammad Arshad Malik.

Zardari and other accused appeared before duty judge Mohammad Bashir after the axing of judge Arshad Malik in leaked video scandal.

During the hearing, the accountability watchdog’s prosecutor sought an extension in former president’s remand for the fourth time.

He said that the anti-graft body did not come by any conclusive evidence during probe with the former president.

However, in a very rare move, NAB’s plea did not face any sort of objection from the counsel of Asif Ali Zardari.
