ECP wants records of PTI’s US companies be checked

The Election Commission of Pakistan‘s (ECP) scrutiny committee has been requested by a petitioner to check the official record of two companies from the United States, registered on PTI chairperson Imran Khan’s instructions in the foreign funding case.

The News reported that the petitioner Akbar S. Babar’s lawyers Syed Ahmad Hassan Shah and Badar Iqbal Chaudhary made the request in the second meeting of the committee at the Election Commission Secretariat.

only a day earlier, PTI sent a written response to ECP scrutiny committee saying that if there were any funds acquired illegally, the responsibility lies with agents.

PTI had denied any illegal funding from the US before. Presently it claims that if any funds were collected illegally via these two US companies registered on Imran Khan’s written instructions, the responsibility lies with their agents managing the two PTI LLCs 5975 and 6160.

The ECP recently expressed concerns over the delays in the scrutiny of the funding-related documents and ordered the committee to accelerate its activity and hold meetings three times a week and get over with the task as quickly as possible, the scrutiny started since March 2018.

The committee refused to share the PTI financial documents with the petitioner. Shah challenged by refusing to share the documents, the committee was in violation of ECP Order, issued on May 30, 2018, that rejected the PTI plea of keeping these documents and the scrutiny process secret.
