Punjab Assembly (PA) Secretary Muhammad Khan Bhatti on Tuesday appeared before the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) team and recorded his statement in Rs24 billion money laundering case against Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) leader and son of PA Speaker Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi and others, including the secretary himself, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Bhatti has already secured interim bail from a banking court in the case until tomorrow (June 22, 2022).  

Six days ago, on June 15, 2022, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had registered a money laundering case against Moonis and others.

It was learnt that the FIA Corporate Crime Circle registered the case against Moonis, who had also served as a federal minister under the PTI government, on the report of sugar inquiry commission.

The FIA sources said that ‘sufficient evidence’ was collected against Moonis after which the agency decided to formally start an investigation against him.
