TDAP case: Arrest warrant issued against former PM Gilani


Karachi, Aug 27 : Former prime minister and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Yousuf Raza Gilani has been issued an arrest warrant by an anti-corruptions court after the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) presented a chargesheet against him in connection with 12 cases related to the multi-million rupee scandal in the Trade Development Authority (TDAP).

The court also issued an arrest warrant against PPP leader Makhdoom Amin Fahim, the Dawn reported.

The arrest warrants were issued against both PPP leaders earlier as well but the duo failed to appear before the court.

Cases against the two PPP leaders, some former and serving senior officials of the TDAP and others were registered by FIA for their alleged involvement in approving and disbursing fraudulent trade subsidies of millions of rupees to several fake companies through fictitious claims and backdated cheques.
