FBR approches IHC to probe Ayyan Ali’s financial sources

The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) Wednesday filed a petition with the Islamabad High Court (IHC) against model girl Ayyan Ali, seeking the court’s approval to probe the financial source of $506,800 of the model that she intended to smuggle abroad.

The FBR’s Directorate of Intelligence and Investigation through Superintendent Zahoor Ahmad Mughal filed the petition with the IHC , stating that Ayyan did not pay any taxes related to the aforementioned sum.

The petitioner has challenged a verdict of Special Judge (Custom, Taxation and Anti-Smuggling) dated March 30 2016, saying whether the law provides blanket immunity as to the source of financing and whether an inquiry could be done to understand the real matter of fact.

It further raised a question whether the onus of proof to establish the source of finance lies on Ayyan.
