ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Tuesday sought a reply within one week from the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to the allegations of receiving funds from ‘ghost donors’.
PML-N’s Hanif Abbasi, through his counsel Akram Sheikh, moved a miscellaneous application in the apex court on Monday, wherein he highlighted that 124 ghost donors — 80 corporations, 23 people believed to be Indians, and 21 other foreigners – had donated to the PTI-LLC California.
And in the case of PTI-LLC Texas, the number of ghost donors was 10, 195 corporations, 18 possible Indian nationals and 21 other foreigners. He contended that a chartered accountant in his report has not given a clean chit to the PTI on acquiring funds through ‘prohibited sources’.
The application states that PTI Chairman Imran Khan had disclosed that the loan acquired by him for the purchase of his London flats was allegedly returned to his ex-wife Jemima Khan and that it was paid back to her from the account of the Niazi Services Limited through a cheque amounting to GBP 562,415.54.
