Pak SC orders Musharraf and Zardari to submit their property details

Pakistan's Supreme Court today ordered former presidents Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf and Asif Ali Zardari to submit their property details along with an affidavit to the court. Chief Justice Saqib Nisar, hearing the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) case, said that accountability should begin with the powerful, The Express Tribune reported.

Zardari's lawyer Farooq Naik told the court that both Zardari and Bilawal Bhutto have recently submitted their asset details with the Election Commission of Pakistan in their nomination papers.

The chief justice then remarked that accountability should begin with people in powerful positions and ordered Naik to submit an affidavit containing details of Zardari's assets. Hearing of the case was adjourned indefinitely.

Zardari served as the 11th President of Pakistan from 2008 to 2013. He rose to prominence after his marriage to Benazir Bhutto in 1987. Musharraf, the 74-year-old retired general, ruled Pakistan from 1999 to 2008.

He is wanted in Pakistan in several criminal cases including in the killing of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto. He has been living in Dubai since last year when he was allowed to leave Pakistan for medical treatment.
