Money laundering case filed against Opposition leader Moonis Elahi​


Moonis Elahi says come what may, he will not abandon Imran Khan


The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has filed a money laundering case against PML-Q leader and former federal minister Moonis Elahi.
The development comes after reports emerged last week that the government is mulling filing a case against Moonis — an ally of PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

The case pertains to alleged money laundering, and has been filed by FIA Lahore.
According to the FIR, proceedings against Moonis under the Money Laundering Act were started two years ago when Imran Khan was the prime minister.

The FIR further said that the report by the Sugar Commission said that Moonis had allegedly engaged in money laundering.
It should be noted that last year, former prime minister Imran had tasked the FIA to investigate the sugar crisis throughout the country and find out who benefited from it.

Subsequently, a report by the agency released last year claimed that top PTI members as well as Moonis were among those who had allegedly gained from the sugar crisis in the country.
In addition to Moonis Elahi, the FIR has also named Nawaz Bhatti, nephew of Muhammad Khan Bhatti, the secretary of Punjab Assembly, and Mazhar Iqbal, a peon at RYK Sugar Mills.
The sources said that both Bhatti and Iqbal have been arrested by the FIA.

The development follows reports earlier this week that the FIA had decided to move against Moonis.

'Will not abandon Imran Khan'

Meanwhile, the PML-Q leader has denied receiving any notice from the FIA and accused the government of witch-hunting.
“I would have come to the FIA office if I had received the notice. I came to know about the FIR from the media. They have skipped a legal step.”

The politician said that he is coming to Lahore to appear before the FIA and they can arrest him if they want to.
“We will not abandon Imran Khan, come what may.”

Moonis added that he never heard of the two other persons named in the FIR, however, admitted to investing in the RYK Sugar Mills. “This is my declared investment.”

'Imran Khan's gift'​


Responding to Moonis' statement, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah asked the PML-Q leader to not get angry over the case as it is "Imran Khan's gift" which has been filed on the basis of the inquiry conducted during the PTI government.

"This inquiry was completed Imran Khan’s tenure and at that time it was also decided to arrest Moonis Elahi,” the minister said.
Rana Sanaullah said Moonis had told him this in the presence of Pervez Elahi when they met earlier this year.

The opinion is still the same, none other than every thug, liar, absconder convicted criminal, thief, robber, and murderer - across the board - should be brought to justice.

Here you are criminally turning your back to the convicted criminals, liars, thieves, thugs, and murderers AND putting all your weight behind a case that is not yet proven and just speculation and irony is that on the part of a murderer from PML-N, who is enjoying every relief against justice to the victims of 'model town butchery'.

Ironic that they are filing these cases now that they know Moonis is going to stay with PTI. Agar PMLN ka saath deta to sab kuch maaf ho jana tha.

A money-laundering case is also registered against Makhdoom Umer Shehryar, who is brother of ex-Federal Minister for Economic Affairs Makhdum Khusro Bakhtiar.


By the way, nowadays, where is 'Maqsood Chaprasi'?
Was not he murdered by the criminals who were to be convicted to put billions of rupees in Maqsood Chaprasi's account?
Did anyone file the case against the murderer of Maqsood Chaprasi? OR all relevant institutes are having sleeping pills?

How original.

Isn't PM also facing similar charges? What irony. A leader facing conviction in money laundering cases is filing money laundering charges against opposition.

The late Dr Rizwan had collected evidence of money laundering of Rs 24 billion against Monis Elahi and he died of a heart attack. Pervez Elahi, the biggest dacoit of Punjab, must have injected that heart attack poison, which is known only to Imran??? Ainj tay fir ainj e sei

Ironic that they are filing these cases now that they know Moonis is going to stay with PTI. Agar PMLN ka saath deta to sab kuch maaf ho jana tha.

Have you considered every one as Imran Khan ?? Who, knowing all this, kept Monis Elahi as Minister.

Money-laundering case: FIA grills Moonis for four hours​


The Federal Investigation Agency on Thursday grilled PMLQ leader and former federal minister Chaudhry Moonis Elahi in a case against him over charges of committing money laundering.


Moonis appeared before a three-member FIA investigaton team at around 9am. It has been learnt that the investigators questioned him for four hours and handed him a questionnaire comprising 40 questions. The FIA team asked him about his alleged connection with the arrested accused, Nawaz Bhatti and Mazhar Abbas. It asked him about his links with the Rahim Yar Khan Sugar Mills. How Makhdoom Umar, another accused in the case, got a licence for the mill in 2007, it asked. The FIA team allowed Moonis to leave after four hours. However, FIA sources said he was likely to be summoned again in the near future.

Meanwhile, the FIA obtained four-day physical remand of co-accused Nawaz Bhatti and Mazhar Abbas. As per FIA claims, low profile individuals identified as Nawaz Bhatti and Mazhar Abbas jointly set up the RYK Sugar Mills Ltd in 2007/2008. Nawaz Bhatti is a brother-in-law of the brother of Muhammad Khan Bhatti, a Punjab Assembly employee, said to be an aide of Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi. The FIA claimed that the sugar mill was set up ostensibly by laundering funds from unexplained sources, including proceeds of financial crimes. The mill's capital increased by Rs720 million in 2008, but the source for these funds as well as those required for the acquisition of land, import of plants and machinery and administrative expenses remained "unexplained", the FIA said. Moreover, between 2011 and 2014, Nawaz and Abbas, who held most of the mill's shares at the time, disposed of their shares, but this transaction also remained unexplained. The FIA said the bank record examined so far had revealed that Nawaz Bhatti and Mazhar Abbas were signatories in multiple bank accounts with a turnover of Rs24 billion.

Later, talking to media, Moonis said he first appeared in the FIA office on Wednesday and was told to come on Thursday at 8.30am. “I told them to ask me whatever they want because I have answer to every question. When they ran out of questions, they started asking me the same questions again. This case is just an attempt to tarnish my image through a media trial. I was later given a questionnaire which I will submit after consulting my lawyers,” he said.

In response to a question, he said the FIA wanted to arrest him, not to investigate him. If they wanted to investigate him, they should have given him a notice first. “I have come to them myself, so they gave me a questionnaire. I have come to tell them today that if they want to ask me something more, tell me when I will have to come again, but there is no need for such a spectacle.”
