Case against Farah Khan totally wrong: Imran Khan


ISLAMABAD: Finally breaking his silence over the corruption allegations against his wife Bushra Bibi’s close aide Farhat Shehzadi aka Farah Khan, former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan deemed the case against Farah “totally wrong.” “She [Farah] has been in the real estate business for 20 years,” Imran said Sunday while addressing a press conference in the federal capital. He said that his former wife Jemima Goldsmith had been booked in a case related to the smuggling of antique tiles as well, adding that his wife Bushra Bibi doesn’t have any bank account. The PTI chairman said that initiating these cases is intended at attacking him, reiterating that Farah is innocent. “It was implied Farah’s riches exponentially grew during three years […] real estate business has generated a lot of money during the last three years,” he said. “They say that the National Accountability Bureau is independent. First of all, I ask NAB if a case can even be built against Farah Khan or not?” Imran questioned. He said that the term “wealth beyond known sources of income” applies to public office holders only. Imran went on to say that the thing that they based the case on is that Farah’s husband was an official of a union council from 1997 to 1999. “She [Farah] wasn’t even married to him at that time. How did they book her in the case,” he objected. The PTI chairman took a jibe at the ruling party, saying that former president Pervez Musharraf gave them the first NRO. He said that people should know how much loss is caused to the country. He said that another major oppression is going to take place as the PML-N and PPP “will end all the cases against themselves.” “They [PML-N and PPP] will give themselves NRO-2 to end the corruption cases against them. Both of them ended the cases against them through settlement,” he said. Imran said that he wants to put the cases against the PML-N and PPP leaders before the nation on the white paper.
