Foreign Funding Case: PTI Now Blames Its Agents For ‘Illegal Funds’
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has taken a new position against the allegations the party received illegal funding from the United States, and now says that if any funds were collected illegally through two US companies registered after Imran Khan’s written instructions, their agents managing the two limited liability companies are to be held responsible.
Dawn reported that the the party in a written reply to a questionnaire given to it by the scrutiny committee of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), disclosed this information.
A case against PTI was filed in November 2014 for receiving foreign funding. Sources revealed that during Wednesday’s meeting, PTI’s documents were not shared. Petitioner’s lawyer, Syed Ahmad Hassan Shah said that by refusing to share the documents, the committee was in violation.
While talking to the media the petitioner, Akbar Babar said:“When those who are under investigation influence the investigation process, how can there be progress?”
The committee is also scheduled to meet today (Thursday) to go over the case.
