Imran Khan submits money trail of London flat in Supreme Court
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan submitted on Saturday the money trail behind the purchase of his London flat in the Supreme Court, ARY News reported.
Advocate Naeem Bukhari, the counsel for the PTI chief, submitted the financial record of Imran’s London flat following the orders of the apex court in a petition filed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Hanif Abbasi.
Abbasi moved the court seeking disqualification of the PTI chief and Secretary General Jahangir Tareen over non-disclosure of assets, ownership of offshore companies and receipt of foreign funds for the party.
Khan had earlier admitted he formed an offshore company namely Niazi Services Limited, to buy flat in South Kensington, London.
In his latest reply, the PTI chief denied allegations of his complicity in money laundering to buy the flat and admitted that some record of his earnings from cricket couldn’t be produced since county cricket clubs do not keep the record older than 20 years.
Khan said he played county cricket from 1971 to 1988 for New South Wales, Worcestershire and Sussex and used the earned money to buy the flat.
He said he initially paid 61,000 pounds as first installment in 1984 and paid the rest sum of 117,500 pounds later in 1989. He said that he earned $75,000 by playing for Kerry Packer Series and $50,000 by playing for New South Wales.
