The Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday expressed its displeasure over former president Asif Ali Zardari’s statement in the NRO case and instructed the PPP co-chairman to again record his statement. The bench directed Zardari’s counsel to instruct the PPP co-chairman to record a statement regarding foreign assets and bank accounts owned by him during the last eleven years (2007-2018). The court also added that Zardari should also add, under oath, whether the properties were acquired through a trust fund.
