Toshakhana case: ECP asks SBP information on Imran’s accounts.

ECP seeks Imran Khan’s bank account info from SBP in Toshakhana case.

ECP has written a letter to the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) to provide information on the former PM,s bank accounts.

The electoral watchdog which is based on the information provided is expected to announce a judgment on the reference.

The request by the electoral watchdog is to not disclose gifts taken from Toshakhana in the financial statements.

Toshakhana case

The case was brought before the electoral watchdog that is a year after the Pakistan Information Commission (PIC) had accepted an application on the matter and had directed the Cabinet Division to provide information about the gifts received by then-prime minister Imran Khan from foreign dignitaries.

The former PM’s reply to the ECP claimed that the case was ‘misleading, baseless and false.

His statement stated that he had not hidden any assets and urged the ECP to disregard the reference.

He further claimed that Article 62 of the Constitution, which specifies that a member of parliament must be “Sadiq and Ameen” (honest and virtuous), was inapplicable to his case.

Earlier, the ECP reserved its decision regarding the PM disqualification that is formed.

The PTI chairman’s counsel Barrister Ali Zafar admitted to Imran selling at least four presents he had received in 2018-19 from foreign dignitaries in a hearing.

According to Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) counsel Khalid Ishaq, Imran agreed to accept gifts in his response to the ECP and confessed that the presents were not revealed in the statements, but argued that things of everyday use “were not disclosed by anyone.”

After examining the bank facts, the reference’s reserve judgment will be made public.
