Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has decided to send a legal notice to Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar over the allegations levelled against him in the recent press conference in Islamabad.
Chaudhry Nisar had claimed that the plane tickets of model Ayyan Ali and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari were purchased from the same account.
“One responsible person came to me and offered reconciliation with PPP if Ayyan Ali is released and Dr Asim Hussain is bailed out, which is not possible for me as an honest person,” Nisar recalled.
In response to these allegations, Bilawal has directed the senior lawyers to prepare a legal notice against the Interior Minister. The party sources asserted that Chaudhry Nisar must apologise over “baseless” allegations or face legal action.
Ayyan Ali became the topic of seemingly endless gossip and news reports after being caught in March last year with over half a million in cash trying to fly to Dubai while Pakistani law bars any passenger from carrying over $10,000.
Since her arrest, rumours abound tying the model to powerful Pakistani businessmen and politicians, offered a new look into money laundering in the country where corruption remains rampant. -NNI
