Imran submits offshore company’s financial records in Supreme Court
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan’s lawyer on Monday submitted to the Supreme Court bank statements of his offshore company to establish the money trail behind the purchase of his London flat and Bani Gala residence.
The statements along with a miscellaneous application were submitted in a petition filed by Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi seeking Khan’s disqualification for concealing his assets, offshore company and receiving funds from prohibited sources.
The counsel submitted in the application that his client couldn’t retrieve the complete record despite hectic efforts, adding that his initial reply with regard to the financial transactions of Niazi Services Limited was based on limited records, and Khan’s knowledge.
Thx to God Almighty & Jemima’s record keeping, today I submitted all additional money trail docs asked for by SC.

He requested the apex court to decide the case in the light of the newly submitted documents.
A three-member bench, headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, had concluded the hearing of a petition seeking disqualification of Khan over hiding assets, owning an offshore company and receiving funds from prohibited sources.
At the last hearing, the top court had observed that some important questions still remained unanswered with regard to the assets of Niazi Services Limited. It observed that it did not reserve the verdict on the petition because it could seek answer to any question at a later stage.
The petitioner’s counsel had argued that Khan concealed his offshore company in his nomination papers for 2002 and 2013 elections, as well as did not declare 100,000 pounds remitted in the NSL accounts that was also an asset.
