LONDON: Ali Tareen, son of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen on Friday excused himself from appearing before Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), in money laundering and sugar mills’ inquiry, citing health issues of his father.
The counsel of Ali Tareen submitted his response in the FIA Lahore:
In August, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had launched an investigation into money laundering charges against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) senior leader Jahangir Tareen’s JWD Group.
“Currently I’m in London to look after my ailing father and cannot appear before FIA”, Ali Tareen said in his statement and added that he needs time to answer the queries of the FIA.
He added ” The record asked by the FIA can not be collected early and it will take time adding that I be given some time so that after collecting information I could appear before the FIA for investigation.”
On Thursday, the FIA had summoned Jahangir Tareena and his son Ali Tareen to appear before it today (Friday).
