Islamabad, Jan.23 (ANI): The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has denied that PPP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari had met Attorney General (AG) Malik Muhammad Qayyum in Dubai.
PPP spokesman Farhatullah Babar said no such meeting had taken place and that it was not on Zardari’s agenda.
Babar said these baseless reports were fabricated by secret agencies to create confusion.
Earlier, Geo News reported that Qayyum had warned Zardari to reconcile with the government otherwise cases pending against him would be reopened.
According to the channel, Qayyum met Zardari in Dubai and told Zardari that the National Reconciliation Ordinance would expire on February 5. The channel said that the AG told Zardari that the government could issue the ordinance anew if Zardari believed in reconciliation with President Pervez Musharraf and cooperation with the government. The Attorney General warned Zardari that in case of non-cooperation from the PPP, cases against him and other party leaders would be reopened for hearing after February 5, the channel reported.
Babar and Qayyum also told ARY TV that no such meeting had taken place. (ANI)
