Supermodel Ayyan Ali alleged that she is facing discriminatory treatment during her trial in the money laundering case, on Monday’s hearing. She further claimed that while others facing similar charges are released on bail, she has been behind bars for months.
Ayyan made these statements for the first time, breaking her silence and finally addressing the court.
Ms Ali pointed out that the other accused caught carrying double or triple the amount in their bags were released on bail after a couple of weeks but her request for bail was being denied.
She also alleged that neither the Federal Board of Revenue nor any other institution had sought details of tax and property from other people accused in similar cases but in her case, each and every detail of her income and assets was under scrutiny.
