Jahangir Tareen, son Ali Tareen get clean chit in money laundering case
The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has decided to close the money laundering case against former Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Khan Tareen and his son Ali Tareen.
FIA’s investigation did not prove money laundering by Jahangir Tareen and Ali Tareen. FIA will soon approach the concerned magistrate for the dismissal of case.
Earlier in March 2021, during PTI’s government, a case of money laundering of Rs7 billion was registered against Jahangir and Ali by the FIA
According to the FIRs dated March 22, 2021, two separate cases were registered under sections 406 (criminal breach of trust), 420 (cheating of public shareholders) and 109 of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC), read with sections 3/4 of the Anti-Money Laundering Act.
Tareen lashed out at the FIA and said the accusations against him and his family were “totally fabricated”.
“I have already submitted a detailed reply along with concrete evidence in response to the FIA notice. Unfortunate to see them go on another smear campaign against me & my family without establishing anything illegal,” he said.
Later, PTI Chairman Imran Khan revealed that Tareen was seeking ‘illegal benefits from him’.
