Altaf Hussain exempted from appearing before Scotland Yard

LONDON: British Police on Monday exempted Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain from appearance at a local police station due to “insufficient” evidence in money laundering case, said a senior party leader based in London.

Altaf Hussain was to return to South London Police Station on Tuesday as part of ongoing investigation into money laundering.

Supreme Council member Nadeem Nusrat said that the police have informed Mr Hussain and five others that they are no longer required to appear at the police station.

He, however, added that the investigations into money laundering case will continue.

Altaf Hussain was arrested in June 2013 on charges of money laundering in London, where he has been staying, since early 90s.
