LHC seeks reply from Imran Khan, politicians on assets


Justice Khalid Mahmood Khan of the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday sought comments from Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and other politicians in a petition seeking details of their assets.
The court issued orders to the respondents to file comments duly supported by their affidavits. Among other respondents are Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) President Nawaz Sharif, National People’s Party leader Ghulam Mustafa Jatoi, Moeen Qureshi and former prime minister late Benazir Bhutto. Justice Khan ordered the politicians to submit their comments within 15 days and adjourned the hearing till January 10, 2012. The court issued this order on a petition filed by Barrister Javed Iqbal Jafree who said in his petition that a LHC bench had ordered the freezing of assets owned by former prime minister Benazir Bhutto (late) and her husband Asif Ali Zardari, now president.


  1. I think PML N leaders must explain how their assets increased exponentially whilst in power and how they transferred these assets abroad. How much capital contribution did Nawaz sharif make towards the businesses of his sons? It is hard to believe that he only owns 1 sugar mill in Pakistan.
