Controversial meat exporter Moin Qureshi told to appear before Enforcement Directorate

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday asked controversial meat exporter Moin Qureshi, who had a lookout notice against him issued by the Enforcement Directorate in a money laundering case, to appear before the agency on November 22.

Justice A.K. Pathak put on hold the operation of the ED's lookout notice issued against Qureshi till November 16. 

The court, however, refused to grant him any interim protection from arrest and any coercive action against him, and asked him to appear before the ED for questioning.

Qureshi had approached the court seeking protection from arrest or any coercive action against him by the ED once he joins the probe.

Recently, Qureshi managed to hoodwink the immigration authorities at the IGI airport to leave for Dubai by showing an unrelated court order in which he was granted bail, and not the case in which ED issued lookout notice against him.

Last year, the ED had registered a case against Qureshi under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) for alleged illegal forex dealings and tax evasion.

Qureshi is being probed for allegedly remitting funds through hawala channels to Dubai, London and a few other destinations in Europe.
