Minister for Privatization Daniyal Aziz Wednesday said chief of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan was a proclaimed offender in a case of terrorism, but he was not being arrested.
Speaking to media persons outside the Supreme Court, he said Imran Khan did not declare his London flat in his tax returns and nomination papers for elections.
He said the offshore company of Imran Khan, Niazi Services Limited was in operation since 2015 and funds were coming in it.
He said PTI was getting foreign funding and every detail was on the record. “Unknown people sent Imran Khan millions of dollars,” he claimed.
Daniyal said Imran Khan was running away from judicial proceedings and was not appearing before the courts. “Instead of hiding from courts, Imran Khan should present evidence in court.”
He said the lawyer of Imran Khan had admitted that his client committed illegal acts.
The minister said it was surprising that no record was sought from the Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) against Jehangir Tareen, who was fined millions of rupees for insider trading.
Evidence was available in the cases against Imran Khan and Jehangir Tareen, he added.
