Zardari files an affidavit
Previously, the former president and co-founder of the People’s Party of Pakistan (PPP), Asif Ali Zardari, had claimed that he had no property or bank accounts outside of Pakistan.
Farooq H Naek filed the one-page affidavit on behalf of the former president before the Supreme Court in a case related to the National Reconciliation Ordinance.
The cases of corruption were shelved in 2007 after Attorney General Malik Qayum wrote letters to the Swiss authorities following the promulgation of the NRO by then President Musharraf. The Supreme Court, however, eliminated the NRO in 2009 and declared that all cases closed under the defunct law remained open
