Prime Minister Imran Khan’s sister Aleema Khan was directed by the Supreme Court to submit Rs29.4 million or her assets will be seized and people are not really impressed.

The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar heard the foreign assets case filed against Aleema Khan. During the hearing, CJP asked Aleema how much did she pay for her property in Dubai.

Aleema said she paid $375,000 for the property in 2008 which was later sold. The Federal Board of Revenue, however, said Aleema only paid half the amount via her own pocket and the rest was paid through a bank loan. FBR said Aleema owes the board Rs18 million.

The court also said that Khan’s sister can initiate legal proceedings against FBR but she has to pay the money first. If she wins her case against the board, her money will be returned to her, it was added.

Social media users are not impressed with SC’s decision and believe that there are ‘different laws for different people’

People are raising questions as to why Aleema was not asked to present money trail and source of income

‘Selective justice’

‘Accountability for all’

The Supreme Court also gave FBR 15 days to present a report on the case and directed the board to speed-up investigation.
