A drama being staged since 8 months with no avail – Aayan Ali Money Launderer - she is brought to the court in well-dress with new hair style and glittering touches of cosmetic - showcasing her that she is not in the ‘’court of law’’ but at a ‘’beauty competition ramp’’ – everyone seen enjoying her presence & getting close to smell the fragrance of her costly perfume - a very attractive & seductive looking woman.
Ayyan Ali A Model Girl media call her Dollar Girl was arrested at Islamabad airport on 14 March while boarding at Dubai bound flight where the custom authority found her carrying $500,000 in cash in her suitcase which was above $ 10,000 legal cash-limit that could be carried out of Pakistan.
She however was put in jail for money smuggling charges which she denied to accept and after few months was released from prison on bail granted by Lahore court.
Since then Ayyan Ali has been visiting to the court on every ''fresh date of hearing’’ keeping the people engaged in witnessing a drama serial where she is brought to the court in fool proof security escorting in heavy contingent of police accompanied with tailing journalist & rush of people around her.
Keep running the slides on TV channels exhibiting Ayyan Ali captivating and enthralling the audience and viewers of her presence – it means the whole process ends just flashing her from head to toe with no summation of the court – on every visits getting a new date for hearing from the judge who is the one doing the same thing since 8 months – asking the prosecutor to produce challan against her to charge formally - some time seen the judge snubs the official for not submitting the challan and gives new date.
The judiciary not ridiculing with people of Pakistan but also degrading & deriding, reducing the name of the institution & ''respect of Judiciary'' showing its inability and giving a message to the nation that Judiciary is worthless or it is being handled & dictated by someone who has asked the concerned judge to keep rolling Ayyan Ali case & kill the time by giving date and then date.
Formally Ayyan Ali has not been charged yet to start court proceeding against her. Her lawyer told AP news agency she would continue to attend the court hearings as required.
In the beginning Ayyan Ali said that money acquired legitimately from the proceeds of property sales and that she was unaware of the customs rules & regulation but the document what she produced before the court were not genuine but fabricated and even this fraud could not implicate her, media reported.
Public Prosecutors have said that if convicted, the Model Girl Ayyan Ali could be forced to pay a heavy fine and face a 14-year jail term but it seems meaningless in Ayyan Ali case.
According to the debate among political analysts - Ayyan Ali is not the one - there are 28 Model Girls who have been transporting money from Pakistan to UAE and its not a matter of million but billion of dollars have been flight from the country during two years.
From this illicit route the national wealth being shifted to UAE - there are big fish among them are top ranking builders & federal and provincial ministers who have been doing Money laundering since years, said a political analyst on TV - even in Ayyan Ali case one Ex-Minster and his brother remained involved in transporting such a huge sum, said the analyst.
Ayyan Ali lawyer Sardar Latif Khan Khosa said that on social media people were accusing Ayyan Ali having links with politicians and businessmen. He also filed an application before the court requesting that the media be restrained from engaging in propaganda against the supermodel. In one of his statement he said Ayyan Ali is a big showbiz figure - her one time play charged her million of rupees, peeling off the fictitious deal of property when Ayyan Ali said earlier in the court.
Social media is not the property of Sardar Latif Khan Khosa – there are views and previews, the visual precept of the region – a general discussion continues where positive and negative thoughts are expressed and it becomes talks of the town, said political analyst.
The special judge of the customs, excise and taxation court adjourned further proceedings in the currency smuggling case.
The court also took up an application filed by the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) seeking registration of a case against Ayyan Ali under Anti-Money Laundering Act. The proceedings on the said application were also put off.
As per F.I.A investigative-reporting so far she has transferred 10 billion dollars during 2-1/2 years. There are regular visits to UAE on her passport where she has been transporting huge sum from the country but this time she was caught red handed, political analyst reported on TV channel.
Referring Money Laundering growing practices in the country - ''Hawala & Hundi'' a unique route to transfer money from Pakistan to overseas where lot of investment made in buying property in UAE, latest model cars - private Aeroplane/ Helicopters had been bought. Investigation however has been started where builders and overseas investigative agency also have been found involved in such illicit business.
There are one more route of Money Laundering – through diplomatic bags Billion of Dollar also transferred form Pakistan to overseas countries because generally diplomatic brief case and hand bags are not checked by custom authority at the airport even they cross from special gate for exit & entry while going from the country such waive gives them substantial opportunity to enjoy with Money laundering.
Again, Ayyan Ali on every ‘’HEARING DATE’’ she is summoned on a new date which is scrolling since a year by the Judge of the concerned court - who of course not only disgracing, demoralizing & discrediting the role of judiciary but stigmatizing, ignoring & dishonoring his own affirmation while undertaking oath to discharge onerous responsibility to maintain justice but such solemn commitment is not seen in Aayan Ali case - A jock of Judicial system in the country really!
It’s an open insult and weakening the power of Judiciary seemingly defaming the Institutions - impacting the sanctity of Judicature - Its due role – misgiving among national about judicatory credibility - obviously marring the momentum & trustworthiness’ of the court where Aayan Ali is brought but instantly the minute she arrives - she is given a new date.
Besides there is constant loss in terms of cash spent on providing her special security & police mobile to escorting her - Judge’s time & the money spent when she was kept in Adyala Jail for months along with other facilities in jail - treating the lady not alike normal prisoner but had given a well maintained facility in the cell.
The custom officer who arrested her does not exist but was murdered and FIR was lodged against unknown which is a general trend in the country to close the case notwithstanding the appeal from the decease family but nothing has happened so far.
Unequivocally an intentional delay by the court in disposal of Ayyan Ali Money Laundering case has been a big question mark among the nation they are very much apprehensive on the role & credibility of the Judiciary.
Delaying tactics by the court giving impression that court itself patronizing and protecting the crime of Money laundering and the criminal Ayyan Ai despite having clear evidence that she had been caught red handed when flying Dubai found carrying USD $ 500,000 in her brief case.
While questioning by Dr. Zulfiqar Mirza Ex Interior minister Pakistan People Party (PPP) he said Ayyan Ali had been tutor of Asif Ali Zardari Ex president where Ayyan Ali had been going Bilawal House Karachi for teaching the Holy Book Quran and she also had been ‘’keep’’ of Asif Ali Zardari, Mirza asserted sharing in a TV interview with the channel.
