ISLAMABAD - The FIA has revealed in Supreme Court of Pakistan that how money was laundered out of Pakistan in the Rs 35 billion money laundering scam.

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, 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 Anwar 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 deputy attorney general informed the court that the hearing was fixed to discuss the formation of a JIT and that Zardari and his sister, Faryal Talpur, had been granted protective bail.

To this, the chief justice questioned which court had approved their protective bail.
