SUNDAY TIMES KARACHI:A two-judge bench will hear five identical petitions, including the ones filed by Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) co-chairman, his sister, Omni Group owner Anwar Majeed, his son Ghani Majeed and another accused Muhammad Haroon.

Zardari and his sister assailed the banking court’s verdict through their petitions. They termed the banking court’s order as unlawful and pleaded to the high court to declare the decision as void.

The banking court had last week transferred the case against the former president and others to Rawalpindi on a request by NAB.

The court also cancelled interim bail of the 19 suspects in the case. Following the ruling, NAB issued notices to Zardari and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, directing them to appear before its Rawalpindi office on March 20. The court directed the authorities to return surety amount to the suspects.
