A local court on Monday sent co-accused on 14-day judicial remand in connection with a money laundering case against Pakistan Muslim League Quaid (PML-Q) leader Moonis Elahi.
The co-accused Muhammad Nawaz Bhatti and Mazhar Abbas have been produced before the court today after the completion of their four-day physical remand. According to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), Rs253 billion had been transferred to the personal bank accounts of the co-accused and later they transacted the money to the third account.
The co-accused lawyer apprised the court that the money laundering case against his clients was politically motivated and the allegations were baseless. He pleaded with the court to send his clients on judicial remand.
