Islamabad, September 28
An anti-corruption court in Pakistan on Monday indicted former President Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur in a money laundering case. Zardari and his sister Faryal were present in the court.

The development comes just ahead of the planned protests next month by Opposition parties to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The case is about the alleged use of fake accounts by the former president and other accused to park and launder the allegedly ill-gotten wealth. Judge Muhammad Azam Khan of the accountability court in Islamabad indicted them.

The court also indicted Omni Group Chairman Anwar Majeed and his son, Abdul Ghani Majeed.

Reacting to the development, Pakistan People's Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said "political victimisation of the opposition continues during a global pandemic".
