KARACHI: Supermodel Ayyan Ali has approached the Sindh High Court, asking for the removal of her name from the Exit Control List (ECL).

Making the interior ministry and in-charge Jinnah International Airport as respondents, Ayyan’s lawyer contended her inclusion in the ECL violated fundamental rights in light of Article 18 of the Constitution.

Earlier on December 1, a customs court in Rawalpindi returned Ayyan’s passport after she submitted two surety bonds worth Rs1 million each, and a document of personal guarantee.

Ayyan indicted in money laundering case

The supermodel was arrested by customs officials from Benazir Bhutto International Airport, Islamabad on March 14 after $506,800 were recovered from her luggage. She was released from Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi after almost four months in detention.

She was indicted in the money laundering case but denies the charges.

    considering on our how our “great” courts work. she will be given passport in next couple of days. After all the only purpose of courts in this country are to protect the criminals. while it may take a decade for a poor man to get justice.Recommend

    A normal person would feel stressed, sad, dejected and worried on his or her court date but God knows what treasure this lady has found in courts that she feels so happy and elated. Her body language conveys message that she wants to stay in this situation till the end of her working career. After all money exchange hands more in judicial system than her own industry.Recommend

    For super elite, that is not a crime. If that is a crime then why not prosecute Zardari, Nawaz Sharif, Ishaq Dar, Rehamn Malik, Babar Ghauri, Moonis Elahi and many others as well.Recommend

    You should all leave Ayyan alone.
    She will be proven innocent.
    Ayyan is a very smart girl and doesn’t need to
    Smuggle $500,000 out of her own country.
    This is small change to her.
    When you have the face of the most beautiful woman in the world you can earn $500,000 in 5 minutes anywhere in the world at any time and believe me she has hundreds of clients queuing up to pay her what ever she commands.
    Good on you Ayyan.
    God Bless.Recommend
