KARACHI: An accountability court on Monday indicted former petroleum minister and owner of Ziauddin chain of hospitals Dr Asim Hussain and 10 others accused in a NAB reference filed against them in Rs 17 billion corruption scam in Jamshoro Joint Venture Limited Company case.
According to the details, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) court has indicted Dr Asim almost a year after the matter was taken up by the court.
The accused leveled objections over the indictment upon which the court ordered NAB authorities to present produce witnesses.
Talking to the media after the hearing, Dr Asim maintained that he was not informed of the allegations leveled against him. “I have faced the false cases in past and would also face them in future,” he said.
The next hearing is scheduled for March 17 in which NAB authorities are supposed to produce the witnesses against Dr Asim.
