PAKISTANI POLITICIAN “ARRESTED IN LONDON FOR MONEY LAUNDERING”

On 18th September, Dawn in Pakistan reported that an arrest – of someone described as a “former PEP” in other sources – was made by the international corruption unit of the NCA which relates to alleged money laundering in the UK “believed to be the result of corruption in Pakistan”.  The couple involved allegedly control a UK property portfolio with more than £8 million for which they appear to have no legitimate source of income.  Although the NCA did not name the person arrested, The News in Pakistan claimed that it was Farhan Junejo, former private secretary of late Makhdoom Amin Faheem, former federal minister for commerce, said to be wanted by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in many cases of money laundering, including a case of corruption in Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP).
