LAHORE: The Special Central Court Lahore on Saturday issued arrest warrants for former federal minister Moonis Elahi in a money-laundering case, registered by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).
According to details, the special court issued the former minister’s arrest warrants on a petition filed by Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) due to his long non-appearance in the court.
Speaking during the hearing, FIA prosecutor said that Moonis Elahi did not attended the court hearings deliberately. “FIA sent court orders on Elahi’s addresses in Lahore, Gujrat, Spain and England,” the prosecutor said.
On July 22, the Lahore district court declared Moonis Elahi – son of PTI President Parvez Elahi – an absconder over his continued absence in the money laundering case.
Moonis is currently living in Spain.
The FIA had pleaded to declare Elahi an absconder for not appearing before the investigation agency even after issuing a non-bailable arrest warrant against him.
The court also started to freeze his assets, computerized national identity card, passport, and bank accounts.
