PPP central executive committee holds emergency meeting over expected arrest of Zardari

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) is currently holding an emergency session to consult over the expected arrest of its co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari on Monday.
Earlier today, the Islamabad High Court rejected bail pleas of Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur in a mega money laundering case. Following the court’s order, a team of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has reached Zardari house to arrest both the PPP leaders.
Apart from the senior party leadership, the legal team of PPP is also in attendance at the consultation meeting and mulling over the options to challenge the verdict of the IHC, sources said.
It may be noted that both the PPP leaders’ interim bail was extended for five times in the reference.
