Islamabad (Staff Report): Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chairman Imran Khan’s lawyer on Tuesday admitted before the Supreme Court that a part of money trail regarding funds transfer from London to Pakistan was missing.
A three-member bench of the top court resumed the hearing of the case.
Naeem Bukhari informed the court that they have presented all the relevant record before the SC.
The chief justice observed that the record of $126,000 is still not present, to which Bukhari responded that the record of these transactions is unavailable.
Bukhari argued that former wife of Imran, Jemima Khan became the landowner of the Bani Gala property from the amount sent from London after the cricketer sold off his flat.
Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar remarked that the loan taken by Imran Khan from his wife was in his possession and so the respondent needed to substantiate the transactions through verified documents.
‘The 6.5 million rupees were sent to Imran Khan by Jemima as a gift, not as a loan’ contended Naeem.
Justice Bandial observed that according to the 2003 record of the bank, the account of Niazi Services Limited is not available.
