LAHORE: An accountability court on Monday declared Moonis Elahi, former federal minister, a proclaimed offender in a money laundering case.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) finished the process to declare him a proclaimed offender and submitted a report to the court. The court issued permanent arrest warrants for Elahi. The judge mentioned that an advertisement was published for him to appear in court, but he did not show up. In a hearing presided over by Judge Naseem Ahmad Virk, NAB Prosecutor Waris Ali Janjua was asked by the court to begin the process of confiscating the former federal minister’s properties. “Neither did he [Moonis] surrender for arrest nor did he join the investigation,” Janjua told the court.

On July 22, 2023, Moonis was declared an absconder in a money laundering case as well. A Lahore district court made the declaration over his continued absence from proceedings in the case filed by the FIA. The district court had also begun the process to freeze his assets, and bank accounts and cancel his CNIC and passport.
