-

An accountability court on Thursday extended the judicial remand of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur till Sept 19 in the money laundering and Park Lane references.

Duty Judge Raja Jawad Abbas presided over the hearing of the references as the former president was produced in the court amid strict security arrangements.

The judge remarked that the concerned judge has been hearing the cases and he would continue with the proceedings.

Meanwhile, the court marked their attendance and adjourned the hearing without proceeding any further.

A heavy contingent of police was deployed outside the court premises and the public was denied entry during the hearing hours.

Separately, Zardari lost his temper with security personnel who were escorting him and Talpur out of the accountability court following the hearing.

A TV footage showed the PPP co-chairman expressing anger while holding a stick in his hand, asking the policemen to clear the way for his sister in a rather crowded court building.

Zardari’s daughter Aseefa was also present in the court during the hearing.
