ISLAMABAD: (HRNW) A five-member bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed, took up a case pertaining to reported issuance of Rs500 million grant by Prime Minister Imran Khan to each PTI lawmaker.
The court directed the finance secretary to submit a detailed report in this regard and adjourned the hearing until Thursday (tomorrow). Over the course of the hearing, Attorney General Khalid Javed Khan termed the news report regarding Prime Minister Khan issuing Rs500 million each to PTI lawmakers fake.
Justice Qazi Faez Esa, a member of the bench, asked if the premier doesn’t want to explain his position on the matter.
“Either the prime minister would have said he sticks to his words or refuted the reports,” he said, questioning why the premier is silent on the matter.
