In an apparent departure from its stance of denying any illegal funding from the United States, the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf has now come up with an explanation that if any funds were collected illegally through two US companies registered after Imran Khan’s written instructions, the responsibility lies with their agents managing the two limited liability companies.


The party adopted the latest stance in a written reply to a questionnaire given to it by the scrutiny committee of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), informed sources told Dawn on Wednesday.


The ECP committee met to continue scrutiny of PTI accounts under fresh directives to expedite the process, which has been going on since March 2018.


The foreign funding case against PTI was filed in Nov 2014 by Akbar S. Babar, a founding member of the party.


Sources revealed that during Wednesday’s meeting, the petitioner’s lawyer, Syed Ahmad Hassan Shah, protested the committee’s refusal to share the PTI’s financial documents with his client. The documents include 23 PTI bank statements received on instructions from the State Bank that were mostly concealed from the ECP.


Mr Shah was assisted by Badar Iqbal Chaudhry.


Syed Ahmad Hassan Shah said that by refusing to share the documents, the committee was in violation of an ECP order dated May 30, 2018, which rejected the PTI’s request to keep these documents and the scrutiny process secret.


The lawyer asserted that “we are participating in the committee process under protest as denying access to PTI bank statements and other documents is a violation of law and due process”.


The body’s chairman acknowledged that the PTI’s bank statements and other documents were not being shared with the petitioner on the concerns of PTI. To which the petitioner Akbar S Babar complained as to how there can be an independent and transparent scrutiny and investigations when those being investigated are managing the process.


The scrutiny committee will now meet on Thursday (today).


Akbar Babar, the petitioner, told reporters after the meeting the reason for the delay despite over 80 meetings was simple: “When those who are under investigation influence the investigation process, how can there be progress?”


He said the committee refused to share PTI’s bank statements with him “as the respondent (PTI) opposes it”. Even an auditor was replaced upon “documented pressure from PTI”, he added.


Babar said the committee could meet forever, but unless it “investigates the evidence”, the scrutiny process would remain inconclusive and without credibility.


The PTI said in its reply submitted to the Election Commission that “any contribution that has been collected by the agent which may be questionable would be beyond the scope of the work/responsibility/instructions given by the principal (respondent)”.


“The principal has given clear instructions and if the agent goes beyond those instructions without disclosing it to the principal, without seeking ratification of those acts and without even sending that money to the principal, then it is submitted that the principal will not be liable under section 228 and not admit/certify such contents. “The fact that the principal neither had knowledge nor has received the proceeds exhibits the bona fide of the principal,” the document carrying PTI’s reply went on to argue.


It was submitted through Shah Khawar.

You know whats funny is that they never ever tell you how much money have been funded by India, US and Israel to PTI, and the reason is that the amount is so miniscule that if they do mention it, then people will ignore this whole foreign funding issue.

Now that doesn't mean that this issue of foreign funding is legitimate. I did a detail post of this a few years ago but from what i remember was that they had picked 32 names from the list of donators, one had a Hindu name another had a Sikh name and the final was a Jew law firm.

The Hindu guy was later found to actually be a Pakistani Hindu. The Sikh was an Indian, however his wife was a Pakistani who made him contribute to the PTI fund. Finally the Jew Law firm franchisee is a Pakistani who used his company cheque to fund. From memory the amount didn't exceed $5000, which is even less than what i have contributed over the years to the PTI fund.

It's DAWN story as usual patwaris doing pattosi 18th both PMLN and PPP has to submit theior funding its not SC case max amount will be confiscated
PTI delayed the case till last CEC retired. Now they have submitted the reply. Perhaps new CEC was given the job on the assurance that matter shall be settled in favor of PTI.

Whatever the decision the matter shall be taken to supreme court by some one.

One thing is for sure PTI has accepted that it received illegal foreign funding. Now it is up to EC how they interpret the same.

All these things have been discussed to death before, people have very short term memory.

I will make it short, from what I remember from last time.

In USA if you want to collect donations on their soil, by law you can not do it on your own instead you have to collaborate with an existing firm/entity (this is what the agent term is referring to). America is not a banana republic they have strict monetary laws specially after 9/11.

All the money has been accounted for, just a couple of thousand dollars (correct me if I am wrong a few hundred maybe) are left.

I remember it from last time the case was picked up. Now if you listen to court proceeding lawyers it is pti who is pushing for early resolution of case and the complainant is asking for prolonging the case to gain most out of it on media.

The real fun will begin when plmn and ppp will appear on 18th. So far they have given not a single detail in ECP. :D
