The Pakistan High Court ordered the Pakistan Election Commission (ECP) to decide a foreign-funded proceeding against the Pakistan Tehreek-Eye Movement (PTI) within a month on Thursday.
Judge Mohsin Akhtar Kayani of the Islamabad High Court has instructed the ECP to determine the pending complaint “always within the next 30 days after hearing the parties’ opinions in accordance with the law,” the Dawn newspaper reported.
Judge Kayani said it would be important to delve into the truth if PTI received funds from a banned source of funding, as it would affect its position, including the chairman.
“If we receive foreign funding contrary to the laws and obligations of the Constitution, the petitioner must face music,” the court ruling said.
According to Dawn, the Supreme Court did not limit the ECP in adopting any method to find out the truth about foreign funding cases.
The foreign financing proceedings have been pending since 14 November 2014 and have been filed by PTI founding member Akbar SBabar, who alleged that there were some financial irregularities in PTI financing from Pakistan and abroad. rice field.
On January 4, this year, the ECP Inquiry Committee submitted a report on PTI’s foreign funding case after 95 hearings. The ECP Committee was established in March 2018.
The report is based on eight volumes of records collected through the National Bank of Pakistan, allowing PTI leaders to collect millions of dollars and billions of rupees without sources or details from foreigners. This proved that he had violated the Financing Act. As reported by dawn.
In addition, Judge Kayani also denied PTI’s request to deny Babar access to case records and to remove him from the case proceedings.
This was after the PTI filed a petition with the Islamabad High Court and challenged the ECP’s decision to dismiss the above party’s plea on January 25 and 31.
“A claim filed by the petitioner (PTI) cannot be maintained because the petitioner himself cannot prove his legitimate rights. [it] Respondent No. 2 (Babar) agreed to participate in the proceedings within the scope of the information provided to the scrutiny committee or ECP, so this petition was not based on good faith and was filed with specific motives. Thing. Respondent No. 2 Akbar This has already been settled by this court in the previous proceedings, just to stop Sher Babar from participating in the proceedings. “
“No restrictions can be imposed on the ECP to adopt the process of investigation, investigation and scrutiny to fulfill the obligations assigned in view of Article 17 (3),” the order added.
Meanwhile, Pakistani troops said Thursday that the word “conspiracy” was not used in a statement issued after a high-level meeting of the National Security Commission was convened last month to discuss a controversial letter. Defeat his government.
Kahn, 69, became the first Pakistani Prime Minister to be dismissed by an untrustworthy vote on April 9. The move he claimed was the result of a “foreign plot” organized by the United States.
To prove this, Kahn quoted an internal communication by the US Ambassador to Pakistan. In a cable sent to the Foreign Ministry, he mentioned a meeting with US officials who claimed that Khan was a hurdle to relations with Pakistan.
Kahn used a high-level commissar of state security (NSC) attended by senior military officials to advance the theory that the letter was genuine and its content was approved by Army staff and others.
At a news conference, military spokesman Major Babar Iftical said Thursday that the word “conspiracy” was not used in a statement issued after the NSC meeting.
“As far as the military response to the NSC meeting is concerned, its stance at that meeting was well demonstrated, and then a statement was issued that clearly stated what was concluded at that meeting,” he said. ..
“It’s right in front of me, as I said the words used are clear. Are there words like conspiracy? I don’t think so,” he said.
A spokesman added that the Pakistani ambassador’s code to the United States was also received by the espionage agency ISI and briefed to the NSC based on the cable.
He said the minutes of the NSC meeting could be declassified if the government decided.
Regarding inquiries issued to the United States, Maj. Gen. Iftical said such protests were initiated for many reasons, not just conspiracies.
“In this case, it was given for non-diplomatic language and is equivalent to interference,” he said.
Clarification came as Kahn was trying to build a story of being a victim of an international conspiracy and his party demanded an investigation by the Supreme Court.
A statement by a military spokesman may be frustrating for Khan and the company as he travels all over the country to work on a rally to force the government into a new election.
Already, Prime Minister Shebaz Sharif has announced that a parliamentary committee will be briefed on the letter by the military and other officials, and will resign if it proves that the United States has colluded to eliminate Khan. Also promised.
