'Truth is I never took money to the UK and I don't even have a lot of information about money laundering,' she said

Entertainment Desk January 13, 2022

Social media star, Hareem Shah, on Wednesday, landed herself in hot waters after a video of her flaunting a hefty amount of foreign currency went viral on social media. In the clip, uploaded by the TikToker herself, Hareem had claimed she took the large sum of money to the UK with ease.

Soon after her video went viral, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) initiated a probe against Hareem over money laundering. The Sindh spokesperson FIA confirmed the news to The Express Tribune, adding the agency will also reach out to Britain’s National Crime Agency to take action against the TikToker.

However, in an expected turn of affairs, Hareem has now claimed that she was made the video merely for entertainment purposes. The internet sensation, in another clip, has now shared how she never laundered any currency.

"I uploaded a video recently on my personal Instagram account which took a weird turn," Hareem shared in a new video. "It alleged that I had laundered a hefty amount of foreign currency. The truth is I never took the money to the UK and I don't even have a lot of information about money laundering."

She went on to add, "I made the video for entertainment purposes." Hareem shared that the money shown in the video wasn't hers but her brother's. She added the money wasn't illegal. "I took my brother's permission to make the video and he agreed. I just want to declare that people who launder money do it without telling anyone. I cleared immigration and came into the UK legally. This is all a farce, there are baseless charges."

Earlier, in the previous viral video, Hareem had gone on to mock the authorities and shared: "I was bringing a large amount from Pakistan to the UK for the first time. When bringing the amount, one must be careful because you might land yourself in trouble. No one stopped me because no one can. I easily took the large sum out of the country."
