Ayyan Ali who is being arrested in the case of Money Laundering is currently detained in jail for attempting to fly abroad with US $500,000. The model turned singer divulged before a Customs Court in Rawalpindi that she acquired the sum by selling a property to former interior minister Rehman Malik’s brother, Khalid Malik.
The model apologized to the court and asserted that she had no knowledge of the law at exceeding $10,000 to a foreign country.
Brother of Rehman Malik, Khalid Malik was allegedly set to travel with Ayyan on the same flight on Saturday morning when she was detained.
Judge Mumtaz Hassan Chaudhry presided over a hearing of Ayyan’s bail plea during which she submitted a written response to the court.
Customs officer Inspector Saleem had appealed to the court to permit a detailed investigation into where the money came from. Also why this much amount is being taken out of the country in greater detail.
Ayyan’s father Raja Hafeez, who was present at the hearing, claimed that the allegation against his daughter was “nothing but propaganda”. Her father requested the court for investigation while on the other hand Mr Hafeez is reportedly unaware of what prompted his daughter to sell the property.
