In a new written response submitted by Justice Qazi Faez Isa with the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) in the presidential reference filed against him, the judge has accused Prime Minister Imran Khan and several other politicians of possessing offshore companies.
The 116-page response submitted with the apex court by advocate Munir A Malik on behalf of his client.
He pointed out that several personalities had concealed their assets abroad through offshore companies, and PM Imran was prominent amongst them.
Justice Isa maintained that his wife and children had never concealed any assets abroad using offshore companies.
He added that the properties they own were bought in their own names.
The defense counsel further observed that the government had hired a private company in the UK to gather information about his client’s family but could not present any evidence of money laundering.
He also questioned the legality of the assets recovery body as no mention of it was contained in any provision of the government’s gazette or the rules of the federal government.
