Court rejects Asif Zardari, Faryal Talpur's pleas for A-class jail facilities

Court reserves verdict on Asif Zardari, Faryal Talpur's pleas for A-class jail facilities
Islamabad: The accountability court of Islamabad on Tuesday rejected applications filed by former president and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur for provision of A-class facilities in their prison cells in the Adiala Jail.

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.
