A story of 'phony' case against Moonis Elahi and FIA's red notice saga

By Irum Saleem

   PTI senior leader and former federal minister Moonis Elahi has challenged the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA)’s efforts to get a red warrants issued for him in a ‘phony’ case.

    The FIA has written to the Interpol for issuance of red warrants for former federal minister Moonis Elahi in money laundering case.

  In the letter, the FIA Lahore said Mr Elahi has been declared proclaimed offender by the special judge central in the money laundering case.

   It said Moonis Elahi, a Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader, had left the country a year ago to evade the probe into the case.

    The FIA asked it to get the approval of this request from the interior ministry and send to IPSG in Lyon for early issuance of his red warrants.

    Responding to the FIA letter, Moonis Elahi said on X: “The case in which the FIA again wrote to the Interpol for my red warrants is fake. The FIA alleged that my friend had set an offshore company for doing money laundering for me and my father. They are so incompetent that the said company was set up when my friend and I were three-year-old.”

     The Elahi family has accused the government of political victimization since it decided to stay loyal to PTI supremo Imran Khan.

    The PTI says a  number of phony cases have been instituted against the PTI leadership including the Elahi family. PAK DESTINY
