FIA is seeking records of all individuals and companies who fund PTI – Pakistan


The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has asked PTI leader Imran Khan for the records of businessmen, including all companies, who fund his party.

The Deputy Director of FIA Islamabad Zone, in a letter to the President of PTI and the Secretary General, requested the records of the national and international companies that fund his party.

According to the wording of the FIA ​​letter, the PTI should provide records of all its organizations and trusts since 1996. A statement of the amount received for membership since the party’s inception should be provided.

The FIA ​​has requested the records of all national and international companies providing funds to the party, as well as commercial organizations and individuals, asking them to provide separate details of any amounts received.

In the letter to Imran, he was asked to provide the annual statement of all accounts opened so far, in addition to the list of all party officials with their identity card numbers.

Investigators also sought the names of everyone authorized to manage party accounts.

Pakistan’s Election Commission had issued a show cause notice declaring Imran Khan’s affidavit invalid in the PTI banned funding case.

A three-member bench, led by Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja, in a “unanimous” verdict on August 2, ruled that the PTI had received funds from banned funds.

In its 68-page decision, the ECP said the PTI received funding from the United States, while Imran Khan submitted false affidavits from 2008 to 2013. The party received funding from 34 foreigners and d ‘Arif Naqvi, he ruled.

Akbar S. Babar, one of the founding members of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf, had filed an application with the Election Commission regarding the party’s foreign funding in 2014.

The case was heard for nearly eight years before the ECP delivered its verdict.

According to Akbar S. Babar, the issue of funds received by the party from prohibited sources was first raised before party chairman Imran Khan in 2011.

Later, Akbar S. Babar took this case to the ECP on November 14, 2014 and said that between 2009 and 2013, PTI raised over $7.3 million from 12 countries.

Akbar S. Babar said that no one knows the real source of these huge sums of money received from foreign sources through offshore companies transferred to party bank accounts.
