Zardari, 63, who is in the custody of the anti-corruption body National Accountability Bureau (NAB) for corruption cases, gave the interview to senior journalist Hamid Mir of Geo News while being allowed to attend Parliament session by the National Assembly Secretariat.
"My arrest will not make a difference. It will only strengthen the party. However, it will create fear among the common man that if Zardari can be arrested then they can also be arrested," Zardari said.
The former president and his sister along with other suspects appeared before the court as the interim bail granted to them ended Wednesday, Geo TV reported. The Federal Investigation Agency's (FIA) investigation officer did not appear before the court as he is currently in Islamabad.
Zardari's close aide Hussain Lawai was arrested in July 2018 in connection with the probe. His other close aide and Omni Group chairman Anwar Majeed and his son Abdul Ghani Majeed were arrested in August 2018.
