Is Asif Ali Zardari seeking NRO deal through close friends?


Shafaqna Pakistan: Former President Asif Ali Zardari is seeking NRO deal through close friends, media reports have surfaced quoting Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed.*

*Former president Asif Ali Zardari’s close friends have started seeking a plea bargain for him, said Railways Minister Sheikh Rasheed, adding that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif wants the same.

Zardari and Nawaz are currently locked up at Rawalpindi’s Adiala Jail and Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat Jail respectively. Zardari is on judicial remand in the fake account cases while Nawaz is completing his sentence after being convicted in the Al Azizia Steel Mills case.

Prime Minister Imran Khan will help change Pakistan’s luck, said Rasheed while speaking to the media in Sukkur Saturday morning. Corrupt politicians have started returning looted wealth, he said, adding that the PM will never give anyone an NRO. These politicians have no other option but to return the country’s wealth that they have looted, he said.
