ISLAMABAD: Opposition leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has accused Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan of tax evasion.
During a news conference Nisar said Imran Khan had not paid his tax returns, hidden his assets, not declared his foreign earnings and had not been upfront as to how he purchased his residence. Nisar challenged Imran Khan to take him to court over these allegations otherwise he would make details of Imran’s taxes public.
Nisar said that both the PML-N and PTI should approach the Chief Justice of Pakistan or the Chief Justices of the provincial high courts and request them to form a commission or judicial tribunal where both parties could submit evidence against each other.
The opposition leader added that Imran Khan was the only politician who criticised the opposition more than the government. “The target of Imran Khan’s criticism is Nawaz Sharif and the PML-N.”
The opposition leader compared Imran Khan to Interior Minister Rehman Malik, challenging them both to approach British courts if they had any concerns regarding the business dealings of Nawaz Sharif’s son Hasan Nawaz.
