Pakistani political parties get foreign funds: PTI

Islamabad: Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan`s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has accused some political parties in the country of receiving funds from foreign countries including Libya, Saudi Arabia and Iran, the media reported on Tuesday.

Facing the charge of getting funds through illegal means, the PTI has now called for a scrutiny of the accounts and funds of all political parties, specifically the religious ones, the Dawn reported.

Fawad Chaudhry, one of the legal advisers of PTI chief Imran Khan, alleged that Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam had been getting money from Libya while some parties received funds from Saudi Arabia and Iran, the Dawn said.

He said the PTI was asked to provide details of its accounts and funds for 2010-13 period but it submitted a seven-year record till March 2017.

He said the party had got more than $3 million from Pakistanis living abroad and that 99 per cent of them had donated between $10 and $15.

The now dead al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, who was ultimately killed by American forces in Pakistan, provided billions of rupees to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif`s party, he alleged.
