The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday granted bail to former president Asif Ali Zardari on medical grounds in two corruption references pertaining to money laundering through fake bank accounts.
A two-judge bench, comprising IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Amir Farooq, directed the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairperson to submit two surety bonds of Rs10 million each in the two corruption references lodged against him, reported The Express Tribune.
Zardari was arrested in June this year for his alleged involvement in money laundering of billions through fake accounts.
He was receiving medical treatment at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) in Islamabad.
