FIA requests SC to form JIT to probe money laundering case
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Tuesday requested the Supreme Court to form a joint investigation team to probe the ongoing money laundering case. The FIA submitted a report on its probe to a bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, hearing the money laundering case. In its report, the FIA said they unearthed Omni Group’s affiliate trading company in Dubai during the probe. As per the report, two foreign bank accounts of Kam Crown Trading Company were created in the office of Abdul Ghani Majeed, son of former president Asif Ali Zardari’s close aide and Omni Group chairman Anvar Majeed. “Through the Dubai foreign accounts money was transferred to buy property in Britain,” the report stated. As the hearing began, former president Asif Ali Zardari’s counsel requested that the hearing be postponed. However, the chief justice rejected his request stating that several lawyers were present in court. The court rejected the request to shift Abdul Ghani to a hospital and sought a plea for his medical treatment. The hearing of the case has been adjourned until September 5.
