Farah Gogi, husband to be brought back to Pakistan through red notice: Atta Tarar


LAHORE: Accusing Farah Gogi and her husband Ahsan Jameel Gujjar of corruption, land fraud and running a racket of diamond smuggling, Punjab Home Minister Atta Tarar on Sunday vowed to bring back the couple via Interpol in the country. Addressing a joint press conference flanked by Punjab Minister for Law Malik Muhammad Ahmad Khan, Tarar said that the government will fulfil all the legal requirements and make all efforts to get “red warrants” (an Interpol red notice) against the couple. A red notice is an international request sent to the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) seeking the arrest and extradition of an individual. He accused PTI chairman Imran Khan, his wife Bushra Bibi and Farah Gogi of looting national wealth. He said that the chief executive officer of Faisalabad Industrial Estate Development and Management Company (FIEDMC), Rana Yousuf, and Special Economic Zone Committee Secretary Maqsood Ahmed have been arrested by the anti-corruption establishment in a case relating to the illegal allotment of a precious industrial plot to Farah Gogi. He said that a 10-acre industrial plot situated in the Faisalabad Special Economic Zone was allotted to Farah Gogi for only Rs83 million and its actual worth was Rs600 million. The minister said that the plot was transferred to Gogi via a fake company. A case has been registered in this regard earlier this month, he said, adding that Farah Gogi, her mother Bushra Khan and Ahsan Jameel Gujjar were nominated in the case. He accused the former first lady of “dealing” in the Prime Minister’s House. “Imran Khan introduced a new system of money laundering in small packets,” he revealed. He said that Imran Khan, along with his wife and Farah Gogi, was running a racket of money laundering via diamonds. Giving details, Tarar said that the diamonds in small packets were smuggled abroad and were sold in black markets. He maintained that Imran Khan was leading the group. Talking about a leaked audio call of Bushra Bibi in which she was reportedly directing Imran Khan’s focus person to prove the opponent a traitor, he said that she is the “mastermind”.
