Zaidi makes purported Zardari properties public

Islamabad: Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs Syed Ali Haider Zaidi Saturday claimed to make public the documents of property owned by Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari in the United States.

According to the revealed property tax documents, the said property 524 East 72 Street, Apt 37F in New York is allegedly owned by Zardari.

Pakistan Tehik-e-Insaf’s (PTI) leader Khurram Sher Zaman earlier filed an application seeking disqualification of the former president and incumbent member of National Assembly from NA-213 Asif Ali Zardari as he did not declare his assets in New York with the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

A banking court on Friday had extended the interim pre-arrest bail of former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur till January 7 in an ongoing money laundering case.
