No concrete evidence to nail Gilani's son in Pakistan's ephedrine scandal: Lawyer
Islamabad, Apr 24(ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani's son Ali Musa has been implicated in a ephedrine scandal but there is no concrete proof against him, his lawyer has said.
Referring to the affidavit submitted by former director general (DG) (health) Dr Rasheed Juma, Ali Musa Gilani's lawyer Salman Akram Raja said the officer had received several phone calls from people using the name of influential persons to secure ephedrine quota, and one of the callers introduced himself as Musa Gilani.
Ali Musa Gilani has vehemently denied making any call to Dr Juma, the Daily Times reports.
Raja said Dr Juma was the only DG (health) who had registered 4,000 drugs in one sitting, which was opposed by the then health secretary Khushnood Lashari.
He claimed that due to Juma's track record, Lashari had opposed his promotion.
The counsel denied Musa Gilani has been declared accused in the case, saying he has not been named in any challan submitted in the court, contrary to a report by Anti-Narcotics Force Director Fahim Ahmed Khan in which the younger Gilani has been mentioned as accused.
Raja termed the proceedings against Musa Gilani unilateral, and vowed to raise all those points in the court, which would absolve him from any wrongdoing. (ANI)
