ISLAMABAD: The officials of Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) told the Supreme Court on Thursday that evidence is available against Ali Musa Gilani, son of Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, in the Ephedrine scandal, reported Express News.

Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, heading a three-member bench, inquired from the ANF on progress in the case. ANF investigation officer Brigadier Fahim, in reply, told the bench that evidence was available against Musa Gilani, and added that this was the first scandal which was being overlooked by the federation itself.

Brig Fahim further told the court that there was embezzlement worth Rs7 billion in the scandal.

On an application filed by manufacturers and chemists of being harassed by the ANF, the chief justice directed the ANF to work as per the law and not harass anyone.

The hearing of the case has been adjourned for three weeks.

    What about Khaki corruption cases:
    1.GHQ not allowing the National Accountability Bureau to independently probe three former military generals who have been named in the Rs1.8 billion National Logistic Cell scam by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC).
    2.Mehran Gate Scandal
    still pending…..

    @ahmad:
    You have to start from somewhere. You have NLC and NICL, Pakistan Steel, Pakistan Railways, OGDC. These are non khaki institutions. A corruption bu khaki is not a justification for corruption by civies.

    @Sehr.Siddiqui:
    Please educate yourself. NLC is run by khakis, and is ridden with MASSIVE corruption, much more than all civilian institutions combined. At the same time, civilian brothers and family members of khakis are also involved in various high profile scams. Not sure if one should call that the corruption by the civilians or the corruption OF the khakis.

    Why adjourned for 3 weeks???? if there is evidence available court should ask for it immidiate production and apply conviction / punishment. why defer it on purpose and complicate the situation. If CJ can ask KP administration to send helicopter and bring those 5 girls immidiately than why same level of urgency not shown in this case.
