‘Not obligated to give any info’: Imran shuts down FIA request in funding case

ISLAMABAD (HRNW) Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman and former premier Imran Khan on Wednesday said he was not obligated to provide any information to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in the prohibited funding case.

In a written response to the FIA’s notice, the former prime minister refused to provide his personal banking details and said he is neither answerable nor obligated to provide information.

The reply to the notice was sent by former attorney general Anwar Mansoor Khan on behalf of the party and its chairman.

Imran also warned the investigative agency of legal action if it did not withdraw the notice within two days.

Terming the notice malicious intent on part of the agency, Imran stated in his reply that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had issued a report and not a decision in the prohibited funding case.

“The election commission cannot issue orders to FIA or any other body based on this report.”

“The FIA does not have the authority to take action under the Political Parties Order 2002,” said the former premier and added that the notice also contravenes the FIA Act
