Ayyan’s plea for revocation of arrest warrants rejected

Lahore

March 14, 2019

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court registrar’s office on Wednesday declined entertaining supermodel Ayyan Ali’s petition seeking revocation of her arrest warrants in a currency smuggling case.

The office put the objection to the petition that since she was out of the country, her petition could not be fixed for hearing. However, Ayyan’s lawyer Aftab Bajwa said he would re-file the petition after removing the office objection. On March 9, Judge of Special Customs Court Arshad Hussain Bhutta had issued perpetual arrest warrants for the model after declaring her a proclaimed offender over prolonged absence from the proceedings in a currency smuggling case. The court had also ordered for confiscating her assets and produce witnesses before the court on March 16 to record statements. “I want to appear before the custom court to prove my innocence in the case”, Ayyan says in her petition.

Verdict reserved: An additional district and sessions court on Wednesday reserved the verdict in a heroin smuggling case against Czech model Tereza Hluskova who was arrested at Lahore airport while allegedly trying to smuggle nine kilogram heroin. The court reserved the verdict after hearing the final arguments of both parties.

The decision of the case will be announced on March 20. Almost one year back, the 21-year-old Czech model, Tereza Hluskova, was arrested at Lahore airport while allegedly attempting to smuggle the heroin from Lahore to a foreign country.
