Court rejects Asif Zardari, Faryal Talpur's pleas for A-class jail facilities
According to details, Judge Muhammad Bashir presided over the hearing of the applications of both PPP leaders for provision of facilities in their prison cell.
Advocate Farooq H Naek asked whether the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had any objection to transit remand.
In reply, NAB prosecutor Sardar Muzaffar said the bureau had objection as the rule of A and B class in the jail had been abolished.
“Now better facilities are available in better class,” he said. To this, advocate Khosa said they would not beg [for facilities] to the government.
However, the court then, rejecting the pleas, direceted the jail authorities to provide the B-class facilities to the PPP leaders and allowed them to meet their families twice a week.
Earlier on Monday, both PPP leaders filed pleas for provision of facilities in their prison cell including air-conditioner, TV, microwave oven, mosquito killer lamp, torch, iPod and a maid.
