NAB asks Bushra Bibi to answer questions in £190m case within two weeks
LAHORE: (Suno News) The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Monday asked the former first lady and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi to submit answers to 12 questions within two weeks in the £190 million case.
The questions asked by the NAB from Bushra Bibi include: What is your educational qualification? Did you do an Islamic teaching course? What is the purpose of creating the Al-Qadir Trust project?
The questions also include: What is your relationship with Farah Gogi? Do you know that Farah Gogi got 240 Kanal land in Islamabad from a housing society? Are you satisfied with the financial affairs and role of Farah Gogi? Did Malik Riaz himself show interest in Al-Qadir Trust or did you contact him?
Apart from this, the NAB also asked for the record of donations received by the Al-Qadir Trust.
Bushra Bibi’s lawyer Naeem Panjutha said while talking to the media outside the NAB office that Bushra Bibi had been summoned in the Al-Qadir Trust case. “Bushra Bibi is on bail in this case. She was kept in a room for the first 45 minutes and told members of the investigation team had not come,” he added.
He further said that Bushra Bibi had been questioned in a separate room, adding that women members were also present during the question and answer session.
He added that the court had been requested to give protective bail to Bushra Bibi like Maryam Nawaz. “The court replied it cannot stop the arrest. Even today, there was a rumour of Bushra Bibi’s arrest,” he said.
He claimed that Bushra Bibi was a trustee in the Al-Qadir Trust, adding that she had not drawn any financial benefit from the transfer of the property.
“Bushra Bibi has no bank account. She answered all questions and fully cooperated in the investigation. A question paper containing around 11 questions has been given to her today. Bushra Bibi is on bail till November 15. Every document will be provided to the NAB if demanded,” he said.
On the other hand, an accountability court in Islamabad Monday issued arrest warrants for former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in the Toshakhana and £190 million cases.
The court also ordered the Adiala Jail superintendent to ensure the arrest of the PTI chairman in line with the court orders.
The special Official Secrets Act (OSA) court also issued a non-objection certificate (NOC) for the implementation of the arrest warrants for the PTI chairman.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) also filed a petition in the accountability court to implement the arrest warrants for the PTI chairman.
