    Islamabad HC has rejected Zardari's bail extension plea.

    Zardari can be arrested today by NAB.

    https://www.dawn.com/news/1487308/ihc-rejects-zardari-talpurs-bail-plea-in-fake-accounts-case
    The Islamabad High Court has rejected an application seeking extension in the pre-arrest bails of PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur in the fake accounts case.

    A two-member bench that had earlier reserved its verdict on their application announced the verbal order.

    Both Zardari and his sibling had left the court building before the verdict was announced.

    The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) can now act on its arrest warrants against Zardari and Talpur — which were apparently issued yesterday — after receiving the written order, which is expected to be issued soon.

    ARTICLE CONTINUES AFTER AD
    The duo has the option of appealing the judgment in the Supreme Court.

    The case relates to a transaction of Rs150 million to the PPP leaders' private company through alleged fake bank accounts.

    Zardari's daughter Aseefa Bhutto-Zardari accompanied him to court today. Security measures around the court were tightened prior to the former president's arrival.

    Additional Prosecutor for National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Jahanzeb Bharwana assisted the two-member bench comprising Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani

    "Let a bail hearing remain just that, do not turn it into a trial hearing," Justice Farooq said while telling the NAB lawyer to only mention any details missed during arguments rather than recapping the whole case.

    PPP workers gathered close to the court as prisoner vans were also brought to the site.

    PPP workers in Punjab have already planned a protest in case Zardari is arrested. The party planned blockade of all major roads of the Punjab capital by arranging workers’ protests there in case of arrest of the party’s co-chairman.

    A PPP worker, Azizur Rehman Chan, said that the protest would be “vigorous” as committees had been formed and duties assigned for each protest point.

    Faisal Mir, another PPP leader, said that if Prime Minister Imran Khan managed to get Zardari arrested through the NAB, he would be laying the foundation for the removal of his government.

    A NAB officer investigating the fake bank accounts case had informed an IHC division bench last month that the investigation team of the fake accounts case had sought approval from the NAB chairman for the arrest of Zardari and his sister.

    Huge decision, but the real test would be to see Zardari behind bars.

    They didn't arrest Zardari when they could have after the hearing. NAB wasn't even present at the hearings.

    Catching them isnt a issue, just dont drag it too long in courts. Zardari and co will make a spectacle if case dragged for more than 4-5 months. Also they have the ability to eliminate witnesses and evidences which should be already in motion.
