A Pakistani court granted bail to a supermodel jailed for four months on charges of attempting to smuggle out of the country more than half a million dollars in cash, her lawyer said.
Ayyan Ali’s famous grey eyes have fronted campaigns for designer clothes, ice-cream and mobile phones. But her career crashed down after the 21-year-old singer of “Making Dollars” was detained at Islamabad airport on March 14 with a case stuffed with hundred-dollar bills.By law, no more than $10,000 in cash may be taken out of Pakistan. Ali says she was waiting to give the funds from a property sale to her brother, who was arriving on a flight. The case shone a spotlight on the lax enforcement of laws against money laundering and smuggling in the nuclear-armed nation of 180 million people that is plagued by drug trafficking, militancy, corruption and crime.
