Federal Law Minister Azam Nazir Tarar on Friday corroborated the claims, saying that the Election Commission of Pakistan has disqualified Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan for five years.

Addressing a press conference flanked by SAPM Ata Tarar and MNA Mohsin Nawaz Ranjha, Azam Nazir Tarar lambasted Imran Khan, saying that he lied before the ECP as he took gifts from the foreign countries and sold them from the state treasury.

Suggesting Imran to fight his battle legally, the law minister asked

Imran to present the documentary evidence. Azam Nazeer Tarar said that the Election Commission of Pakistan did not give the decision of Imran Khan’s disqualification in haste.

“Imran Khan concealed many things from the Election Commission. He lied in the annual returns submitted to the Election Commission,” he added. “He also lied during the hearing in the Election Commission. The misconduct of Imran Khan was bigger. Still, the decision against him was lenient,” he stated.

“The precious gifts of Toshakhana were bought at lower prices. But placing the details of the gifts before the nation was avoided,” he deplored. The law minister also accused Imran Khan of attacking cities with mobs. “Imran Khan should face the law instead of launching attacks with mobs,” he advised.

“The elected representatives were mandated to submit their returns by December 31 every year. In 2019, 2020 and 2021, Imran Khan did not disclose the gifts he received abroad. He was afraid that if he disclosed the details of the gifts, his dishonesty would be revealed and the public would ask him questions about this fact”, he added.
