ISLAMABAD: Member National Assembly Danyial Aziz said on Friday that the government is considering to file a money laundering case against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for taking millions of dollars funding from 114 ghost investors to dislodge a democratic government in the country.
“It was not only a case of illegal funding but also a constitutional violation,” he remarked at a news conference while showing documentary evidence to reporters about money laundering committed by the PTI.
“The government is mulling all available options to initiate legal proceedings in the United States under money laundering act as well as to approach justice department of the US,” the minister said.
Responding to a question about legal actions against PTI, he said that even their names and nationality were not mentioned in the documents.
Daniyal, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader, said there were also 275 corporations and businesses listed as the contributors to the PTI – the ownership of those was not known.
“It was surprising that all the companies were listed in the US by the PTI with the signature of its chief Imran Khan,” he maintained.
When asked about the source of transaction for collecting the money from US, the PML-N minister said: “All the amount which was more than Rs442 million were transferred through various banks in the name of PTI office located in Sector G-6 Islamabad without source.”
He also disclosed that a well planned fund raising campaign was launched in the US by PTI using slogans to dislodge the democratically-elected government in Pakistan, which was itself a violation of Pakistan and the US laws.
