ISLAMABAD: Reposing full confidence in country’s justice system, super model Ayaan Ali on Sunday expressed hope that courts would decide her case on merit.
Speaking exclusively to Geo News, she said those who put her name on the Exit Control List (ECL) over “personal enmity” would bite the dust.
“Rulers would not let their opponents breathe, if there were no courts,” she said. She spent months in a high security jail in Rawalpindi after being arrested on charges of money laundering on March 14, 2015.
She was arrested by the Customs authorities at the Islamabad’s Benazir International Airport after the recovery of $506,800 from her luggage. According to the prosecution, Ayyan was trying to smuggle undeclared $506,800 from Pakistan to Dubai.
Ayaan Ali was released on bail and since then she has been seeking to remove her name from the ECL so that she could travel abroad.
On March 7, The Sindh High Court struck down the memorandum of interior ministry on restricting Ayaan Ali from travelling abroad, observing that the interior ministry’s memorandum was contrary to the Exit Control Policy.
