A Spokesman of the Prime Minister’s House has described the news story published in a section of print media as pack of lies and devoid of truth in which it has been alleged that the PM House is stopping the ANF from summoning Ali Musa Gilani for investigation.


The Spokesman said that Syed Ali Musa Gilani, MNA, returned from abroad to Pakistan only to face the investigations and no letter was written to any quarter by the PM’s House to hamper investigations.


Spokesman further said that Syed Ali Musa Gilani said on record, “I am waiting for the ANF call to appear before investigators to record my statement”. The story of the correspondent is therefore a figment of imagination, the Spokesman added.


Spokesman added that the correspondent should have seen the statement of Ali Musa Gilani, which was widely reported both in print and electronic media.


Umar Cheema adds: The letter to ANF was written by Secretary Narcotics, not PM’s Principal Secretary. This factual error is regretted. Having said so it doesn’t mean the ANF was not pressured into submission especially when Secretary Narcotics continues to behave like a personal servant of the prime minister. The PM House has to explain who asked Secretary Narcotics to pass directives to ANF for prior approval for investigating Tauqeer Ali Khan, alleged PA of Ali Musa Gilani whom the latter disowned saying he never heard his name before.
