Imran Khan, wife skip NAB hearing in Al-Qadir Trust case

Canada Global (Web News) Imran Khan, the leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, declared on Thursday that while he was out on bail, he would not participate in a NAB inquiry.

He referred to the accusations made against him as “absolutely false, frivolous, and concocted” in a letter to the deputy director of the NAB. He stated that he would not be accessible before his protected bail expired on May 22 since he was in the process of requesting and receiving bail in a number of other judicial issues.

Imran Khan, the chairman of the PTI and a former prime minister, and his wife Bushra Bibi missed the Thursday hearing of the National Accountability Bureau on the Al-Qadir Trust case.

The couple was expected to appear in person before the NAB Rawalpindi court with the necessary paperwork. The former prime minister had been called in for questioning by the anti-graft commission in connection with an inquiry into a £190 million settlement with the UK.

According to sources, Mr. Khan’s legal team recommended him to submit a written response to the 20 questions requested about the corruption case, which also involves a property tycoon, rather than appearing before NAB in person.

Imran Khan, the PTI chairman, and his wife Bushra received a summons from the NAB earlier today, asking them to join the probe into the Al-Qadir Trust issue at 10am. The summons was delivered to the Zaman Park residence by a two-person NAB squad.
