|Imran Khan answers PML-N’s allegations|
02 August 2012
Islamabad: Hours after Nawaz-League leaders leveled serious allegation of money laundering against Imran Khan, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman dismissed the accusations and requested the Supreme Court of Pakistan to take action.
Addressing a press conference flanked by Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Javed Hashmi on Wednesday, Khan said that Khuwaja Asif should have considered a while that the Shaukat Khanum was a national asset not a personal property of Imran Khan.
He rejected the allegations of money laundering and investment in real estate through anonymous companies. “Every charity organization forms an endowment board which invests the donations in different businesses to earn money so that the institution could be run,” he said. “Even Harvard University has also endowment board”.
Imran Khan said that the Shaukat Khanum’s Endowment Board comprised people, who know finance and business and it was separated from hospital trust board.
“I have no account in foreign counties, I have brought all my money back to Pakistan,” he said. The PTI chairman said that the Hospitals Endowment Board invested 3 million dollars through a company. He said that the company was not anonymous as its director was Imtiaz Haidri. Khan further said that Khuwaja Asif lied that the money was sent from Pakistan for gambling. “The 30 million dollars were not sent from Pakistan instead they were taken from a foreign account of the board and they were not of Zakat and Sadkat,” He said the 30 million dollars were guaranteed and the board was assured of no loss.
Imran Khan said that the PML-N’s move to hurl allegation was aimed at baring the Shaukat Khanum from collecting donations for cancer patients.
