Money laundering case: Sindh CM meets CJP as JIT complains lack of cooperation

Sindh Chief Minister (CM) Murad Ali Shah along with Sindh advocate general and Sindh chief secretary on Saturday met Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Saqib Nisar in Supreme Court of Pakistan s Karachi Registry in case pertaining to lack of cooperation in money-laundering scam.
Earlier, Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and joint investigation team (JIT)—constituted on the directives of apex court—have informed CJP about the premeditated lack of cooperation from the Sindh govt and other provincial departments in probe related to money-laundering through fake accounts.
However, CJP remarked that he had not summoned Sindh CM but would meet in his chamber. Justice Saqib Nisar vowed to remain in Karachi till the probe into the mega-scam is completed.
FIA is probing 32 people including Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur in alleged scam of money-laundering of as much as Rs73 bln through fictitious bank accounts.
