LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami naib ameer Liaquat Baloch has said the arrest of former President Asif Ali Zardari is the part of judicial process as PPP co-chairman is facing cases of money-laundering.
Commenting on Zardari’s arrest by NAB, Baloch said on Monday that previously, the court had allowed bail to Zardari but this time, the bail was denied. He said the government was continuing the policy of likes and dislikes in regard to accountability. The 436 persons named in Panama leaks besides cases of mega corruption pending with the NAB and those getting their huge bank loans written off, were not being touched.
