seems like no one is interested...

the person was declared bankrupt and during his bankrupt period he was still a senator.


The facts:

* Jan 3, 1990, bankruptcy notice filed against Zakaria;
* Feb 11, 1990, bankruptcy notice served on Zakaria;
* July 30, 1991, Zakaria appointed senator;
* Sept 10, 1992, declared a bankrupt by High Court; and
* Nov 24, 1992, discharged as a bankrupt
