Prime Minister Imran Khan’s sister Aleema Khan is seems in trouble as the Supreme Court of Pakistan has summoned tax record of her property. During the hearing of the case pertaining to foreign property holdings of Pakistani nationals the Federal Board of Revenue told the court that it is not yet confirmed whether she had properties abroad.
Aleema Khan broke her silence when she was addressing to a fund-raising event for NUML University, at Tokyo. She said that she will respond to all allegations levelled against her in the Supreme Court. “I am being asked tough questions because I am in the headlines these days.” “I am answerable to God and when the court summons me I will respond to their questions as well,” she added. The premier’s sister further said that she’s “not a public office holder but a private citizen” and “will reply where she has to”.
“I am being asked where I got the money from [to purchase property]. I inherited this money from my maternal and paternal grandfathers as well as my parents and even earned myself,” she added. Aleema, while referring as Shaukat Khanum Hospital funds said “None of us board members have ever touched the money that has been raised and nor have we ever tried to earn money through the wrong means.” “My father was also accused of corruption and that was painful.” “My father taught us to always be honest and forget taking bribes he never even gave them except to one telephone person who he used to give Rs100,” Aleema added.
