    PML-N leader Hanif Abbasi on Thursday moved the Lahore High Court after the Anti Narcotics Force (ANF) sent him a fresh notice for detailed financial records as part of the watchdog's investigation in the 2012 ephedrine case.

    Hanif has been directed by ANF to provide his own as well as his family’s financial details for the watchdog to determine his alleged involvement in the sale of ephedrine, a regulated chemical, to narcotics smugglers.

    Hanif was accused of 'misusing' 500 kilogrammes of the controlled substance, which he obtained for his pharmaceutical company, Gray Pharmaceutical, in 2010. Instead of using the chemical to manufacture medicines, Hanif allegedly sold it to narcotics smugglers.

    The ANF had registered a case against Hanif and his accomplices in June 2012 under Sections 9-C, 14 and 15 of the Control of Narcotics Substances (CNS) Act, under which an accused may get the death sentence if convicted.

    In 2014, Hanif was formally indicted in the case. A special CNS court had also indicted Basit Abbasi, brother of Hanif Abbasi, along with distributors and employees of Grey Pharma.

    The ANF has now asked for Hanif and his family’s financial records through a formal notice. The watchdog is looking to conduct a deeper inquiry into the case and ferret out Hanif's involvement in it.

    The ANF has sent Hanif a formal notice, asking him to provide his own financial documents as well as the financial documents of his wife, two daughters, his son and his brother.

    The anti-narcotics watchdog has also asked Hanif and his family members to provide the details of any financial assets they posses. Hanif and his family have also been directed by the ANF to desist from transferring any assets to each other without bringing it to the watchdog’s notice.

    The former MNA has also been directed to provide the details of any loans, insurance agreements, investments and premiums to the ANF as well.

    The family has additionally been asked to provide the ANF the serial numbers of any money transfers, cheques, bank drafts, telegraphic transfers and the details of any foreign remittances they may have received.

    In his petition challenging the notice, Abbasi’s lawyer has taken the stance that the investigation in the case against the defendant has nearly wrapped up, with just one witness statement left to be recorded. Thus, to reopen the case will only serve to disrupt Abbasi and his family’s life.

    Bank accounts of Hanif Abbasi, family frozen

    RAWALPINDI: The Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) on Thursday froze the assets of former MNA and PML-N leader Hanif Abbasi in the Ephedrine case.

    The ANF also issued a notice seeking details of his and assets of the members of his family and bank accounts from him besides preventing him from transferring money without permission.

    The ANF issued a notice to Hanif Abbasi in connection with further inquiry into the Ephedrine case against him. Through the notice, Hanif Abbasi and members of his family have been asked to provide details of all of their assets and bank accounts.

    On the other hand, Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi on Thursday challenged the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) notice pertaining to a fresh probe into the Ephedrine case in Lahore High Court (LHC), Rawalpindi Bench.

    The hearing of Ephedrine case against Hanif Abbasi is going on in a local court. It has been said in the notice by ANF that Hanif Abbasi should file details of assets, bank accounts in respect of him and his wife, two daughters, son and brother. All these persons should not transfer money to someone else without permission.

    ANF has also sought information from Hanif Abbasi about his and family’s bank transactions, loans, investment, payments to insurance companies and premium. It has been further said in the notice that information about bank transactions over Rs100,000, cheques, bank drafts, transfer letter, deposit slip and bank cheque book serial number also be provided. Details about foreign remittances have also been demanded from Hanif Abbasi and his family.

    A petition by Hanif Abbasi has been filed in court says that the inquiry and probe into the case has been completed whereas the statement of a prosecution witness is to be recorded. The petition argues that the notice is aimed at delaying the case.

    In 2012, Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) lodged an FIR against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader, Hanif Abbasi, for illegally acquiring 500kgs of Ephedrine, a controlled substance. The FIR was registered at an ANF station.

    It is worth mentioning that MNA Ali Musa Gilani, son of former prime minister Yusuf Raza Gilani, is among the accused in the case, involving a scam worth Rs7 billion. It was the same scam, which prevented Makhdum Shahabuddin from vying for the premiership of the country as an arrest warrant was issued for him hours before he could even take part in the election for PM.

    Meanwhile, Hanif Abbasi through his counsel Tanveer Iqbal advocate has challenged ANF letter before the Lahore High Court (LHC) Rawalpindi Bench while saying that it was issued against the law.

    ANF through an August 10 letter asked the former MNA that the investigator “is conducting an inquiry into the assets of accused Muhammad Hanif Abbasi, the members of his family, relatives, associates, which they have suspiciously acquired through drug proceeds”.

    ANF sought asset details of Hanif Abbasi, Mehnaz Abbasi, his wife, Areeba Abbasi and Zoha Khalil Abbasi, his daughters, Hamas Ullah Abbasi, his son, and Muhammad Basit Abbasi, his brother.

    ANF has issued this letter under section 6 (4) of Control of Narcotics Substance Act 1997. Hanif Abbasi in his petition before the LHC has contended that the investigation in Ephedrine quota case has concluded and only one witness left to examine. Reinvestigation in this case seemed to be a move to agonise him. He requested the court to set aside ANF letter.

    Aslaam Aliekum,

    This is my first post,

    Do you people think he deposited his illegal drug money in his legitimate account?

    No, He himself given details of his accounts so one can assume he have many accounts probably Swiss to hide his drug money abroad.

    How much would 500kg of Ephedrine have fetched?

    I used to take it as a pre-workout - an ephedrine, aspirin and caffeine stack. Wasn't very expensive as I recall.

    Oh yaar apni emotional outbursts aur language control kiya karo! You're an educated guy, act like it. Otherwise people won't take you seriously.

    Lol I know why YOU don't like him; and it's not ephedrine :p:
