FIA launches money laundering case against Sofia Mirza
A four-member team, headed by an FIA deputy director, will conduct investigations into the matter.
Reports in local media said that an investigation was launched after the case was transferred via a letter by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against Sofia Mirza.
A couple of days back, Ms Mirza, in a tweet, said: “I am innocent and fighting for my kids recovery. These type of acts would not stop a mother to get her daughters back. I have legally taken action against all social media through cyber crime in FIA.”

Earlier, another Pakistani model Ayyan Ali had been booked under similar charges in the past where she was charged with money laundering, trying to smuggle $506,000 out of the country.
She was arrested on March 14, 2015, after customs officials recovered a huge amount from her luggage at the Islamabad’s Benazir Bhutto International Airport before she could board a flight to Dubai.
The court had indicted Ayyan in November 2015 for attempting to smuggle more than $500,000, however, she pleaded ‘not guilty’ and opted to contest charges.
She was granted bail in July 2015 after remaining incarcerated for nearly four months in Rawalpindi’s Adiala Jail.
