Chemical import case: SC issues notice to PM Gilani’s son
ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan, on Tuesday, issued notices to the prime minister’s younger son Ali Musa Gilani and Principal Secretary Khushnood Lashari in a case involving illegal sale of an imported chemical, DawnNews reported.
The Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) has also sent Musa Gilani and Khushnood Lashari’s names to the Interior Ministry to be put on the Exit Control List (ECL).
The SC was hearing a case on the import of a proscribed chemical – ephidrine, a controlled substance used in medicines – that allegedly involves the prime minister’s son.
ANF’s Regional Director Brig Faheem Ahmed Khan, who was investigating the Rs7-billion scam involving illegal sale of ephedrine, confessed in court today that Secretary of the Narcotics Control Board Zafar Abbas had stopped his team from carrying out further investigation in the case.
The hearing of the chemical import case was subsequently adjourned until April 20.
