Pak's FIA declares Zardari, Faryal and 18 others absconders

Pakistan's Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has declared 20 suspects, including former President Asif Ali Zardari, as absconders in a 35-billion rupee money laundering case.

According to local media reports, the FIA submitted a document of the case in a court yesterday naming the Pakistan Peoples Party co-chairman, his sister Faryal, his close aide Hussain Lawai, and a famous banker among others as absconders.

Lawai was arrested by the FIA earlier this month in the case in which he is accused to helping facilitate the opening of 29 fake accounts in Summit Bank, Sindh Bank and United Bank Limited.

According to a police complaint, billions of rupees were deposited into the fake accounts and subsequently transferred to other beneficiaries, including Zardari and his sister's company, the Zardari Group.
