ISLAMABAD (NNI): The record of Imran Khan’s financial assets provided to the Supreme Court is ‘simply explained’ and ‘transparent’ and far beyond that asked for in the petition filed against him by PMLN, said Central Spokesperson Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf Fawad Choudhary addressing media outside SC and refuted the allegations of money laundering and tax evasion leveled against Chairman Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf Imran Khan.
In a statement issued by Central media Department Fawad Choudhary has stated that petitions against Imran Khan are destined to be declared as trashed by the apex court since the allegations leveled in these petitions are politically motivated. Fawad Choudhary stated that PMLN wants to avenge Imran Khan for Panama probe.
He went on adding that unlike Sharifs, who are also guilty of perjury and forgery besides corruption, Imran Khan brought back his foreign earnings to Pakistan. Fawad Choudhary stated that Imran Khan started earning money abroad when he started playing cricked during his days as a student at University of Oxford, England.
Imran Khan was selected to play cricket for Pakistan, also for Worcestershire from 1971. He played for Sussex County from 1977 to 1988. All the payments Imran Khan received had income tax deducted from them at source.
