SHC seeks documents against Talpur in Iqama case

The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Friday resumed hearing petitions against top leaders of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) for holding an Iqama (work permit) and ordered the submission of documents against Faryal Talpur in the case.
The petitions seek disqualification of PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari’s sister Faryal, Suhail Anwar Siyal, Manzoor Wassan and other for holding work permits of foreign countries and not disclosing them in their nomination papers.
The petitioner’s counsel, Khawaja Shamsul Islam, continued his arguments before the high court bench.
“In the disqualification of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Iqama played a major role. He was not only disqualified but was also removed from the PML-N presidency,” maintained Shamsul Islam.
He insisted, “The judgment of the top court also applies on Faryal Talpur. How she made assets is an issue which should be investigated.”
“The report of the joint investigation team (JIT) in the money laundering case has proved everything,” added the petitioner’s counsel.
Islam also urged the court to disqualify Faryal for holding and hiding the work permit.
The SHC, meanwhile, told the petitioner’s counsel to submit documents in the case against Faryal.
In the absence of her counsel, Farooq H Naek, the court adjourned the hearing till February 15.
