Ali Musa Gilani, son of Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, along with his counsel, Fawad Chaudhry, appeared before the investigation officer of the Anti-Narcotics Force (ANF) with regards to the ephedrine quota case on Thursday. Speaking to media representatives prior to appearing before the investigation officer, Musa Gilani again denied involvement in the respective case. “I have no connection to this case…I am not an accused…I will repeat the same statement before the investigation officer also,” Musa Gilani said. He said he had to appear before the investigating officer on April 30, but in compliance with the Supreme Court’s orders, he was appearing before the officer on April 26. Earlier, the ANF had submitted a report before the Supreme Court formally naming eight accused, including Musa Gilani, for their alleged involvement in the scam. According to the ANF report presented in the apex court, the accused managed to convert the allotment of drugs intended for export into local use with the help of the health ministry staff and under alleged political pressure from Musa Gilani and Mian Abdul Sattar. Musa Gilani has repeatedly denied involvement and has said that he is being wrongly implicated in the case. Moreover, during repeated media interactions, Prime Minister Gilani has indirectly been warning officials against implicating his son in the case.
