The supermodel’s plea has finally been accepted after spending four months in jail.
The Lahore High Court (LHC) has granted bail to supermodel Ayyan Ali today who had been arrested four months ago in a money laundering case.
Constantly in the news for interesting, and at times bizarre reasons, Ali’s counsel claimed that that the money smuggling charges raised against the model were fake and that the Custom Officials had no concrete reason of arresting her.
He further stated that under the Customs Act, women suspects in money laundering cases could be freed on bail after completion of investigation. He added that his client was a woman and investigation in the case had been completed so she should be released on bail.
Ayyan had been arrested by the Customs officials from Benazir Bhutto International Airport, Islamabad on March 14 after US $506,800 was recovered from her luggage. She was then taken to the Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi.
