Maryam Nawaz doesn’t own any offshore company

Islamabad—Terming Imran Khan’s allegations ‘baseless’, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law Capt (retd) Safdar informed the Supreme Court that his wife, Maryam Nawaz does not own any offshore company.
In his response submitted in the apex court, Capt (R) Safdar claimed that he mentioned complete details of his assets in the nomination papers for 2013 general elections. He said his wife regularly pays taxes and the details of assets were shown in her tax returns.
The PML-N lawmaker further stated that no reference has been forwarded to the National Assembly Speaker regarding his disqualification.
Raising question over ‘eligibility’ in the Supreme Court is violation of Article 225, he added.
Capt (Retd) Safdar argued: “Article 63 (2) of the Constitutions is limited to post-election disqualification matters relating to a Member of Parliament, which are set out in Article 63 (1) thereof. Allegations pertaining to pre-election qualifications of a Member of Parliament as provided for in Article 62 (1) of the Constitution, cannot be raised or made after holding of the election and notification of the result thereof.” He said Imran’s ‘petition has no merit, being based on false and incorrect allegations and is liable to be dismissed.’—NNI
