In a major development in 25-year-old cases against PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday decided to take back appeals against the acquittal of the former president in the four references, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The NAB officials have moved an application in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) seeking withdrawal of Bureau’s appeals against the acquittal of Asif Zardari.

The NAB, in its application, prayed to the court that further prosecution of the appeals will be a useless exercise. The available documentary evidence is not in accordance with the legal evidence, it added.

To make their latest move further formidable, the NAB further prayed that they hardly have on record even the photocopies of the documents against Asif Zardari.

Asif Zardari had been acquitted in four reference namely Ursus Tractors, ARY Gold, Polo Ground and SSG Cotecna.

The NAB had challenged the PPP Co-Chairperson’s acquittal in 2015.
