KARACHI: few medical reports of former president Asif Ali Zardari – who has been undergoing medical treatment at the Ziauddin Hospital in Karachi – have been released on Sunday.
In addition, doctors may continue to receive Mr. Zardari’s treatment in the coming days, as the former president will continue with a series of tests for his possible heart complications.
After analyzing his medical report, the doctor will make a decision about angioplasty.
Mr. Zardari was transferred to Ziauddin Hospital last night. He was brought from Islamabad to Karachi by the Sindh LG-45 aircraft. Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah personally traveled by plane with the co-chair of the Pakistani People’s Party (PPP).
Mr. Zardari flew from the plane to the airport lounge and was received by PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
Zardari was released for medical reasons after a responsible court in Islamabad issued a robbery to Park Lane Estate Company on Thursday and money laundering was conducted through a fake bank account.
After the deposit was filed, the robbers were sent to the head of the Adiala prison.
The Islamabad High Court (IHC) guarantees Mr Zardari on medical grounds in the same case.
IHC Chief Judge Athar Minallah chaired the hearing. The court ordered the former president to submit two secured bonds with a value of Rs 10 crore.
The Deputy Attorney General (APG) of the National Accountability Office (NAB) read Asif Ali Zardari’s medical report submitted during the hearing, as led by justice Athar Minallah.
The former president is said to have diabetes and heart disease that requires angiography, and angioplasty may be needed when placing a stent. The report said that the life of Asif Zardari was in danger and that he could not be treated in prison.
National Australia Bank told the court that there were already two references to fake bank accounts and large money laundering cases in Park Lane. The court stated that this meant that the anti-corruption guardsman would no longer request further detention of the suspect because reference materials had been submitted.
Hospital sources said that Mr. Zardari’s faster heartbeat also had difficulty walking. After a detailed examination by the former president, doctors can schedule heart surgery and change medication.
Mr Zardari has filed a bail request on medical grounds and Talpur requested bail at the court and argued before the court that she was the mother of a child with different abilities, so she had to look after the child.
The former president insisted on having a heart attack and placed three stents in his body. He says he also has diabetes, which means that he must constantly check his blood sugar level.
The medical report of the PPP co-chairperson is submitted to the IHC with the application.
On November 12, a responsible court in Islamabad rejected Zardari’s request to transfer him to Karachi for further consideration.
On July 29, an accountancy court issued a copy of the Park Lane reference to former President Asif Zardari, stating that Asif Zardari A loan of Rs 1.5 crore was obtained from the National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) under the name of the fake company Parthenon.
On July 1, NAB arrested Zardari in the Park Lane case and was detained by the Rawalpindi Office of the Counterfeit Counseling Office.
On June 26, Zardari withdrew his bail request in three cases and said that he knew the cause of his suffering and “would not embarrass anyone.”
He withdrew his bail request for luxury and bulletproof cars at Park Lane in Tosha Khana, which was submitted by NAB.
After IHC had rejected a bail request from him and his sister Faryal Talpur in a money laundering case, Asif Ali submitted to a National Accountability Office (NAB) team on 10 June.
Accountant guards arrested him in June after the High Court of the Islamic Bank had canceled the pre-arrest bail in a fake banking case.
At the time, the National Bank stated that its investigation into the case showed that PPP leaders had committed corruption and money laundering with the help of their close associates. The National Bank also stated that the loans were obtained through the presentation of false documents and that the loans were subsequently used for personal gain.
According to the reference, Rs1.5 billion were taken in 2009 and Rs800 million were withdrawn in 2012. It had added that the NBP suffered loss of Rs3.77 billion due this fraud. It had further mentioned that Zardari as the president had forged documents to comply with the loan policy and coaxed the NBP into loan approval.
Asif Zardari was 25% share holder in Park Lane Company and he also made a fake company Parthenon in the name of his employees. Besides, a property was also bought in the IBC Center where the bureau has sealed eight floors.
As per the prosecution, the Park Lane case is being investigated under different sections of NAO 1999 and Anti-Money Laundering Act 2010 for Zardari’s alleged involvement “in extending loan and its misappropriation by M/S Parthenon Private Limited, M/S Park Lane Estate Private Limited and others”.
