SUNDAY TIMES LAHORE: A bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar, directed the PPP leader to submit his replies until Dec 31.

Meanwhile, it ordered the authorities concerned to seize all properties owned by the Omni Group.

It gave these directions after going through the report of the Joint Investigation Team .

Earlier, on Friday, Karachi’s banking court had extended interim bail Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur in a money laundering case.

The judge granted an extension in the PPP leaders’ bail until Jan 7. This is the fourth time they have been granted extension in their bail.

Zardari and Talpur are facing a probe into a money laundering scam involving over Rs35 billion laundered through fake bank accounts. Zardari’s close aides Hussain Lawai and Anwar Majeed, head of the Omni Group are also being investigated in the scandal. They both are in custody.
