A three-member bench of the Supreme Court on Wednesday resumed hearing a petition seeking the disqualification of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi’s petition.
Justice Saqib Nisar said Imran Khan has to justify that the money was sent by Jemima.
PTI chief’s counsel Naeem Bukhari said Jemima has ensured that she will soon provide the documents.
CJP remarked that Imran Khan did not declare his London flat before amnesty scheme, upon which Naeem Bukhari responded that Imran was a common man when he took benefit of tax amnesty scheme.
Bukhari said it was a mistake to not reveal Niazi Services Limited, not dishonesty. Justice Faisal Arab said to Naeem Bukhari that you are negating your statement yourself.
PML-N lawyer Akram Sheikh involved in a dialogue with CJP and said Naeem Bukhari is still on the fourth point and plans to go abroad as well, therefore, this case would not reach its conclusion soon.
