The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) launched a money laundering investigation against TikToker Hareem Shah on Wednesday, an FIA Sindh spokeswoman said to The Express Tribune. A video of the social media celebrity went viral in which she was seen flashing foreign cash while stating she effortlessly took a large sum out of Pakistan.
Shah travelled to Doha on January 10, according to the record. In a statement, an FIA officer said that an inquiry against Shah for laundering a huge quantity of foreign cash had been begun. The FIA also decided to write to Britain’s National Crime Agency to take action against TikToker, according to the spokeswoman.
In the said video, Shah went on to mock the authorities and shared:
“I was bringing a large amount from Pakistan to the UK for the first time. When bringing the amount, one must be careful because you might land yourself in trouble. No one stopped me because no one can. I easily took the large sum out of the country.”
