LAHORE: The Lahore High Court order the release of supermodel Ayyan Ali on bail here on Tuesday. Two previous bail petitions were rejected, one by the Lahore High Court and the other by the Rawalpindi customs court.
Previously In her application, the supermodel sought bail, adopting the stance that she went to the airport to hand the money over to her brother who was arriving in the city that day via an Emirates flight.
The LHC registrar had declared this bail plea of Ayyan as not maintainable under the objection that a petition for bail had already been rejected by the LHC. Counsel for Ayyan, Khurrum Latif Khosa said that the earlier rejected plea was against a customs court, while the fresh bail petition directly addresses the LHC.
Ayyan is facing charges of money laundering and currency smuggling. The cases are being heard by a Rawalpindi customs court. The cases have been adjourned until July 11 and July 13 respectively.
