PM submits affidavit on money laundering allegations in Shaukat Khanum Memorial Trust Fund
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has submitted affidavit on money laundering allegations in Shaukat Khanum Memorial Trust Fund.
Prime Minister Imran Khan took part in the proceedings of the compensation case in the local court of Islamabad through e-court. The case was about Rs 10 billion in damages on Khawaja Asif’s allegations regarding non-transparency in Shaukat Khanum Hospital fund.
The Prime Minister in his affidavit termed the allegations as baseless and fabricated and appreciated the tradition of e-court. The Prime Minister has said in his affidavit that Imran Khan was Shaukat Khanum’s biggest individual donor from 1991 to 2009. The Shaukat Khanum Trust’s investment schemes were decided by an expert committee. Prime Minister Imran Khan did not interfere in the committee. The baseless allegations against the investment schemes were recovered by the Shaukat Khanum Trust without any loss.
Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that people have confidence in Shaukat Khanum Trust. It is unfortunate to use such a welfare scheme for politics by making baseless and fabricated allegations. The court hopes that by giving an exemplary verdict on such allegations, it will help end this tradition in future.
He said that taking legal action from e-court is a welcome step. This saves both valuable time and money of the esteemed court. Cases can also be dealt with in a timely manner.
