ISLAMABAD: A special court of custom, excise and taxation on Wednesday refused to register a money laundering case against model Ayyan Ali.
Giving decision on an application filed by customs officials, the court said the plea was filed on ‘unreasonable’ grounds.
Special judge of custom court Rana Aftab after hearing the arguments had reserved the verdict for some time and then rejected the petition.
Ayyan is already facing trial before the said court in currency smuggling case.
Ayyan Ali was arrested by the Airport Security Force in March last year at Benazir International Airport along with $506,800 she was allegedly trying to smuggle to United Arab Emirates (UAE).
