Faryal Talpur’s plea seeking restoration of bank accounts rejected in court

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party leader Faryal Talpur, seeking restoration of her bank accounts, had her plea rejected by an accountability court on Tuesday.

Judge Azam Khan ordered to keep Talpur bank accounts freeze, but allowed to unfreeze accounts of her children.
An accountability court had reserved verdict on PPP leader Faryal Talpur’s petition on March 10 seeking restoration of her bank accounts. The plaintiff’s lawyer Farooq H. Naek had stated that freezing bank accounts of her client, before the approval of inquiry is against the law. The NAB opposed the plea saying that transactions of billions of rupees were conducted from the bank accounts of the accused. Faryal’s plea is not on merit, he continued.
On December 17, last year, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) had approved the interim bail of Faryal Talpur in fake bank accounts case. An interim bail was approved to Faryal Talpur against Rs10 million surety bond by a two-member bench headed by Chief Justice of Islamabad High Court (IHC), Justice Athar Minallah.
