SC summons Aleema Khan's property, tax details

Islamabad (Staff Report): The Supreme Court (SC) on Friday directed the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to present property and tax amnesty details of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s sister, Aleema Khan during the hearing of suo motu case regarding foreign properties of Pakistani nationals.

A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar is hearing the suo motu case on foreign bank accounts and properties owned by Pakistani nationals.

The CJP asked the chairman FBR if the prime minister’s sister owns any property in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and further inquired whether she had benefited from an amnesty scheme by the government.

The FBR officials informed the court that Aleema had availed an amnesty scheme and her tax details were confidential.

The court then directed FBR to submit complete records of Aleema Khan’s properties and details of any amnesty scheme availed by her.

The Supreme Court had taken a suo motu notice of Aleema’s foreign property and issued notices to Director General (DG) Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and Chairman Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) along with other parties.
