AVA- The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leaders have been issued a notice to appear before the agency on July 11 to record their statement in a case pertaining to suspicious transactions of Rs35 billion carried out through fictitious bank accounts.
Sources in the FIA told the source that the PPP co-chairperson and Talpur were placed on the no-fly list.
The sources added that a recently-introduced feature – the Provincial National Identification List – enables the FIA to bar any person from flying abroad for a period of 30 days.
The decision to restrict the movement of the former president has been taken in relation to a money laundering scam which is being probed by the FIA and being heard at the apex court.
On Friday, the FIA had detained Hussain Lawai and Taha Raza, accusing them of facilitating the opening of 29 fake accounts in different banks.
