prohibited funds

On Tuesday, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) announced its verdict on the prohibited funding case against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). A three-member bench directed by Chief Election Commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja announced the judgment. In its verdict, the ECP said that PTI did certainly acquire prohibited funds and kept 13 bank accounts hidden.


PTI’s Senior Management is Involved in Managing the Prohibited Funds, Claims ECP


“The data obtained from SBP reveals that all the 13 accounts disowned by PTI were opened and operated by the senior PTI management and leadership at the Central and Provincial levels. In this regard, it is further added that PTI failed to mention and disclose three accounts which were also being operated by the senior leadership of the party,” the verdict read against PTI’s funding.


Moreover, the ECP found that PTI’s funding was taken from America, Australia, Canada, and the UAE. As per the verdict, PTI “knowingly and willfully” received funding from Wootton Cricket Limited, operated by business tycoon Arif Naqvi. The party also received donations through PTI Canada Corporation and PTI UK Public Limited Company, the verdict read. The ECP also issued a show-cause notice to PTI. The commission also said that PTI chief Imran Khan had submitted a “mis-declaration” with the commission.
