Lahore: Former president and co-chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Asif Ali Zardari has said that the cases trumped up politically charged vindictive cases but he faced those cases and never ran away from facing the court. Arbab Alamgir and Asma Arbab Alamgir called on Asif Zardari here and congratulated him getting acquitted in the last NAB case. Talking on the occasion Zardari further said that despite vengeful victimization he pursued the legal way, went to the court, and ultimately delivered justice from there. It may be mentioned here that an accountability court in Rawalpindi acquitted Zardari over in reference pertaining to alleged illegal assets in Pakistan and abroad yesterday. Khalid Mehmood Ranjha, the judge of Accountability Court No 1 had accepted the application seeking the acquittal of former president. PPP’s Farooq H. Naek represented the former president in the court. Earlier this month, the accountability court had reserved judgment on the petition seeking Zardari acquittal.
