Islamabad, Mar 14 (UNI) A Pakistani court today acquitted Pakistan People's Party (PPP) co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari in the last of the seven corruption cases filed against him.
Judge Saghir Ahmed Qadri of the Special Accountability Court announced his acquittal in the BMW case, the APP reported.
An application was filed under section 265-K as the reference case did not fall under the National Reconciliation Ordinance.
Mr Zardari's counsel urged that due to lack of evidence, the reference stood irrelevant and the PPP leader be acquitted.
The counsel for Mr Zardari were advocates Naek and Arshad Tabraiz while Bashir Ahmed Qureshi represented the National Accountability Bureau.
''The truth has prevailed and justice has been done,'' advocate Naek told mediapersons after the verdict was announced.
