PPP Co-Chairman and former President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari was allegedly sent to a Dutch school for corruption charges.
According to details, an image of a page from a Dutch school book, which Asif Ali Zardari portrays, is being widely shared on social media. The website shows a picture of Asif Ali Zardari under the headline “Former Pakistan President, ‘Mister 10 Percent’, Arrested for Corruption”.
Moreover, the page, which appears to be proof of the arrest, contains a paragraph that highlights the arrest of Asif Ali Zardari on money laundering charges against him. Apart from Asif Zardari, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was also mentioned.

What would be a greater insult to the Sharif and Zardari families and their parties than school children in the Netherlands were taught the corruption of Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari.

Asif Ali Zardari has been accused of money laundering in several cases. However, last year, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) decided to withdraw the corruption cases registered against the former President.
It is worth mentioning that Pakistani politicians are more notorious for corruption charges. The Supreme Leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Nawaz Sharif, was sentenced to seven years in prison by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in 2017 on charges of corruption in the Panama Papers Case.
Last year, a video started circulating on different social media platforms, showing Nawaz Sharif’s alleged use of corruption in an international university.
A teacher at the University of Toronto, Canada, Nawaz Sharif was allegedly used as the first example of corruption in a course of study. The video has received a lot of traction on social media platforms, with netizens lamenting that the former PM has once again brought shame to the country.
