FIA summons former minister Ijaz ul Haq in money laundering case

The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has summoned former minister and Pakistan Muslim League (PML) leader Muhammad Ijaz ul Haq on Saturday in a money laundering case brought against him.

The federal organization issued a summons notice to Ijaz, who is the son of former president General Muhammad Ziaul Haq.

He had been asked to appear at the investigating agency’s Faisalabad office on February 21 (Tuesday).

It was alleged that the former minister of minorities and religious affairs had more assets than income. He was being looked into for Rs. 1.8 billion in money laundering.

The FIA was given Ijaz’s case by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). A joint investigation team (JIT) will look into him.
