He obtained watches legaly but sale of these watches was unethical and illegal.
Unethical and illegal? How so mere bahi ? Please explain how was it illegal?

Alfred Friendly ka mufta halal kar rehe hain The News wale or Umar Cheema as I said before.

Is Kasim Abbasi ne to 112 gifts ko 58 bna dia. Aik propagandist kehta he 112 gifts they dusra kehta he 58. Ab sacha kon jhoota ko ?

This, not condoning any kind of corruption but people getting hang over 3 watchs vs the billions robbed over 2 decades have got all their priorities wrong.

The mafia, corrupt, traitors are ruling the country whilst the awaam is pointing fingers at the Rerri wala for not selling full glass of lemon juice

I have gave two reasons.

1- He took oath that he would not use his position in state for his own monetary benefits.
2- Can anyone sale a commodity which is purchased on subsidised rates from government?? A poor person who purchased 5 kg sugar on subsidised rates from Utility Store can't sale it in the market but Imran Khan can sale gifts purchased on subsidised rates from government??

Bahi g which law states that if someone buys something from Toshakhana. He can not sell it.

And as for monetary benefits he isn't allowed to use his position "illegally". And if him taking something from Toshakhana (and selling it) is monetary benefit and illegal then can the current govt do 2 things.

1) Make all Toshakhana history public so we know about monetary benefits of previous ones.
2) Explain how Nawaz got a watch in 1997 and didn't pay plus the beemers he got in Zardari era.

A poor person isn't allowed to buy 5kg sugar from Toshakhana. Only PM and Govt employees are.

58 were those gifts which were taken by paying 20-50% price, rest were taken without paying a paisa.

In Dec 2018, the rules were changed so that 50% of value had to be paid to retain a gift, but he was still paying 20% of the value in mid 2019??

One Rolex Platinum watch gifted by a member of a royal family from a Gulf island was sold by Imran Khan for Rs5.2 million

View attachment 857876
Former prime minister Imran Khan sold three watches from Toshakhana collectively worth more than Rs154 million to a local watch dealer, The News has learnt.

Details of an official inquiry shared with this correspondent reflect Imran Khan earned millions of rupees from these jewel-class watches gifted to him by foreign dignitaries. These watches are in addition to the ones reported earlier in the media.

The most expensive watch — more than Rs101 million value — was retained by the-then prime minister at 20 percent of its value after his government amended the Toshakhana rules and settled the gift retention price at 50 percent of its original value.

Instead of buying those gifted jewel watches from Toshakhana from his own pocket, the ex-prime minister first sold the watches and then deposited 20 percent of each in the government treasury, reveals documents and sale receipts available with this scribe.

Apparently, these gifts were never deposited in Toshakhana. The gift received by any government official is to be reported immediately, so its value is assessed. And after that the recipient deposits specific amount if he wants to keep it.

Toshakhana documents reveal the former prime minister earned Rs36 million from the sale of these three expensive watches gifted by visiting dignitaries from friendly Gulf countries. A real windfall profit was earned through sale of a watch gifted to him by a high dignitary from Middle East. This watch was officially assessed at Rs101 million. Former prime minister had declared he sold it for Rs51 million and deposited Rs20 million in the government treasury, thus earning a whopping Rs31 million. This reflects the watch was sold at half the price of its actual worth.

It is pertinent to mention here that this watch was sold on January 22, 2019 after the-then PTI government amended the Toshakhana rules and made retaining price of any gift at 50 percent from 20 percent of its assessed value.

One Rolex Platinum watch gifted by a member of a royal family from a Gulf island was sold by Imran Khan for Rs5.2 million. This expensive gift, as per the Toshakhana rules, was assessed by official evaluators for Rs3.8 million. He deposited in the government treasury 20pc of the value amounting to Rs0.75 million, earning almost Rs4.5 million profit by selling this watch. This watch was sold in November 2018, two months after it was gifted to him.

Another Rolex watch gifted by a dignitary from the same Gulf island was sold by the former prime minister for Rs1.8 million. The official value assessed for this watch was Rs1.5 million. The former PM paid Rs0.29 million, earning another profit of Rs1.5 million from this deal.

All these gifts were sold to a local watch dealer. The record has the sale receipts along with pictures of these luxury watches. This scribe contacted PTI leaders Fawad Chaudhry and Shahbaz Gill through calls and messages to take their view regarding the matter, but none of them responded. The question which The News asked from Fawad Chaudhry and Shahbaz Gill was, "Dear sir, it has been learned that being PM Imran Khan sold three additional luxury watches to a watch dealer in F-7, Islamabad. I have a few queries regarding the matter. If you please spare some time and answer them.

1) Imran Khan retained one watch at 20 percent of its assessed value when his government had amended the retaining price at 50 percent of the original value of the gift. This watch was retained on January 2019 after your government amended the Toshakhana rules in December 2018. Please comment and explain why rules were not followed?

2) Imran Khan did not deposit these three watches in Toshakhana and deposited money on the day he sold them. Why he kept the gifts to himself? Please comment. Your immediate response will be highly appreciated and regarded.

Responding to the Toshakana controversy, former prime minister Imran Khan had said they were his gifts, so it was his choice whether to keep them or not. "Mera tohfa, meri marzi (my gift, my choice)," the PTI chairman told reporters during an informal conversation.

The issue came to light when Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said Imran Khan, during his tenure, sold the Toshakhana gifts in Dubai worth Rs140 million. According to reports, the former premier received 58 gifts worth more than Rs140 million from the world leaders during his three-and-a-half-year stint and retained all of them either by paying a negligible amount or even without any payment.

Former information minister Fawad Chaudhry had also stated that “selling one’s own assets (after purchasing them from Toshakhana) is not a crime”. “These gifts were purchased by Imran Khan and (after he became their owner) he can sell his assets. So there is nothing wrong with it,” he had claimed.

IK should come out and give an explanation for this news, and if the story is false should take this journalist and his media house to court.

There is nothing to discuss with you people. Let KPK, Balochistan and GB be free. Punjabis and Sindhis can form their own Pakistan.

I can see who really is using fabricated stories to do propaganda here.

Those who live in west know after divorce money is split up.

Using that screenshot where the reference is to Jemaimas dad offering Khan is actually the "fabricated stuff" here.

Media is saying Khan was going to get wealth from Jemaima while the fabricated screenshot says her dad offered a well established business. 2 different things. But I completely understand niche spam karne wale Patwari hain.

Using a gifted watch is shameful but selling a gifted watch is not??
I don't think this watch was gifted through Toshakhana. Must have been earned through other means of Sharif earning.

But I know one that was shamefully stolen in OCT 1997.

Real cause of heartburn:
Within days of coming in power this PMLN-led daku company stole 12 billion USD from forex reserves.
Now the small time thiefs are whining and complaining why the watches were also not there.

IK sold 3 gifted watches that we know of if true. We usually find out after the government completes the term - not during.


There is no such thing as free gift. There are reasons for expensive gifts. In politics, it is give and take. Taking gift is considered questionable move in the line of politics.


Are you justifying or admitting that Khan is corrupt as Nawaz Sharif if allegation is true? Imranistan does amaze me sometimes. 😳
Funnily it was in news when these Auction was done.
