ISLAMABAD: Ali Musa Gilani, son of former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, said that he was granted bail by the Supreme Court in the Ephedrine quota case on merit and the apex court had not done him a “favour”.
Speaking to the media on Saturday, Ali Musa said that the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF), which had arrested him at the Supreme Court gate yesterday before he could submit a pre-arrest bail application, was becoming too personal against him.
“They held a press conference today and said that they did not want me to become a hero. I’m not here to become a hero. How can a government worker give such a political statement?” he said while lashing out against the anti-narcotics body.
He added that whatever happened on the Supreme Court’s premises yesterday was in contempt of the court and was also in his contempt. “I will move a privilege motion against the contempt done against me, and have submitted a contempt of court application as well.”
Ali Musa also clarified that there was no recovery on him in the case, even if all the allegations against him are proven correct. “The main beneficiaries have been spared who are moving about freely.”
