DUBAI – Supermodel Ayyan Ali has announced to return back to the country soon to face the smuggling charges against her.
She has said that she was wrongly implicated in the money laundering case without any evidence.
On March 14, 2015, the model was caught at Benazir Bhutto International Airport leaving the country with $506,000. Ayyan Ali , then 22, was one of the country’s top models and widely known as the face of a large mobile phone company.
Officers said they found more than $500,000 in cash which they claimed she was trying to smuggle out of Pakistan on a flight to the UAE.
On Thursday, she told journalists that she didn’t bring any harm to Pakistan and its people.
“There were two other people accompanying me at the airport, why weren’t they caught? They didn’t face any investigation and were not taken into custody,” she added.
The model went on to say that she has been facing mental ailments and once even had a minor heart attack.
