Narcotic Force has named Ali Musa Gilani, sitting Member
National Assembly and a son of Former Prime Minister Yosuf Raza Gilani,
as an accused in Ephedrine case.The drug based scandal in which
Ephedrine quota worth Rs7 billion was given to two Multan-based
companies on the pressure of an influential person.
The case was registered on October 10 last year after two
pharmaceutical companies – Danas Pharmaceutical and Berlex Lab
International – were held responsible for obtaining export quotas for
the drug in collusion with the health ministry officials that exceeded
the limits fixed by the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB).
The Anti-Narcotics Force issued warrants against Makhdoom
Shahabuddin also. The name of Makhdoom Shahabuddin appeared in this
case right on the time when President Zardari nominated Shahabuddin as
a candidate for the new prime minister. He had also filed his
nomination papers for the slot but then roll back due to Ephedrine
quota case involvement.
