Model Ayyan Ali announced Thursday to return to Pakistan soon, adding that she will face the money laundering case against her, according to media reports.
In March 2015, the popular model was caught leaving the country with $506,000. Ayyan was arrested from the Islamabad airport when she was travelling to Dubai.
Speaking to media persons, she said that she faced severe allegations which didn’t have any proof and she didn’t bring any harm to Pakistan and its people. She claimed she was wrongly implicated in the case without any evidence.
“There were two others present with me at the airport in the video, why weren’t they caught? They didn’t face any investigation and were not taken into custody,” Ayyan told the reporters.
The model went on to say that she has been facing mental ailments and once even had a minor heart attack.
Discussing the smuggling case, she stated that she has changed her team of lawyers and when she will arrive in Pakistan she will respond to all the statements made regarding her.
Back in November 2015, Ayyan Ali pleaded guilty when she was charged for attempt to smuggle more than half of a million dollars cash out of the country.
Ayyan’s name was removed from the Exit Control List (ECL) in February 2018 by the interior ministry after which she left the country.
