ISLAMABAD: Former president Asif Ali Zardari on Friday filed a petition in the Supreme Court once again and requested to bar the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) from investigating into fake accounts case.

The petition, filed by Sardar Latif Khosa, Asif Zardaris counsel, states that the court directed the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to assist the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in this case but the FIA is still conducting parallel investigation.

According to the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairmans application, the FIA recently summoned his legal adviser, Abu Bakr Zardari, and questioned him about some particular bank accounts.

The application states that NAB and FIAs parallel investigations in the fake accounts case were illegal and in violation of the SCs orders.
