Islamabad High Court rejects inquiry against model Ayyan Ali

Islamabad High Court has rejected a request for an inquiry under the Anti-Money Laundering Act against model Ayyan Ali in the currency smuggling case.

The court had received a petition by the Customs officials against an earlier verdict passed by the Customs Special Court in Ali’s case. However, the High Court upheld the decision of the Customs Special Court and rejected the appeal of the Customs officials. Justice Ghulam Azam Qambrani delivered the reserved verdict.

Ayyan was arrested on March 14, 2015, for allegedly attempting to smuggle $506,800 in cash to the UAE past the Airport Security Force personnel at Benazir Bhutto International Airport in Islamabad

She had not appeared before the court in the last 45 hearings after which the court issued an arrest warrant of her and declared her 'most wanted'. It also ordered to confiscate her property. 

Earlier, Ayyan released her much-awaited music album titled ‘Nothing like Everything’. 

The album has 11 tracks and it’s full of surprises for fans. Ayaan Ali took to Twitter to announce the news and wrote: “Friends, there you go. Presenting you my very first album Nothing Like Everything. I started it five years ago and it is finally released. Official Animated Videos and music videos and much more will be out soon, guys! Stay Tuned.”
