RAWALPINDI: Judge Arshad Mehmood’s court ordered the seizure of assets belonging to former federal health secretary Khushnood Akhtar Lashari in the infamous ephedrine quota case, reported Express News on Saturday.

Khushnood Akhtar Lashari’s houses in Lahore and Islamabad will be seized after Lashari failed to provide details of his assets to the court as was ordered on July 6.

Pharmaceutical Director Col (retd) Tahirul Wadood Lahoti, chief executive of Berlex Lab International Multan Iftikhar Khan Babar, and Director Rizwan Ahmed Khan’s properties will also be seized based on the same failure to submit answers to the court.

Others to list details of assets to the court were ex-prime minister Yousaf Raza Gillani’s son Ali Musa Gillani and spouse Fouzia Gillani. They claimed that the money shown has not been made through the sale of ephedrine but was made through personal means.

The Control of Narcotics Substances (CNS) court on July 6 issued notices to 15 accused in the ephedrine case including ex-prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, his wife Fouzia Gilani and son Ali Musa Gilani to inform the court in writing about their source of income.

The judge adjourned the court till July 30.

No one should be exempted or excused, Ali Musa Gilani, Fauzia Gilani or Yousuf Raza Gilani, the Executives of any and every Pharma companies should brought into accountability and punished to the hardest if we have a Judicial system and it is working farely, this is a fraud of 7 billion US$, so confiscating 2 or three houses is not a punishment, Now every one should know the reason why Yousuf Raza Gilani rejected the court order to write a letter against Asif Zardari requesting French authorities to reopen the fraud case against Asif Zardari, he did a favor to him and now it the return time from the President. Some one, at some point should take a step in favor of this country, this country which has given the bests out of bests to us and is still capable of nurturing all of us, but it also needs sincere care, a little appreciation at least. These characterless presidents, Pms and so on takes the highest salaries, facilities and still involved in looting and destroying the Country should never be allowed to walk free.
