Aleema Khan did not avail amnesty on Dubai property, SC informed
LAHORE - Contrary to media reports, the land revenue board commissioner informed the supreme court on Saturday that Aleema Khan, the sister of Prime Minister Imran Khan did not seek tax amnesty on her Dubai property.

During the hearing of a case regarding offshore properties owned by Pakistani citizens, the apex court ordered that investigation against Aleema Khan be made part of the court record.

The Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar heard the case at the Lahore registry wherein Dr Ishtiaq Ahmed presented a report on Aleema Khan’s properties and said she did not seek tax amnesty on her apartment in Dubai and false reports are being run telecasted media in this regard.

When the bench asked land revenue board commissioner about the apartment, Ishtiaq Ahmed contended that Aleema Khan was issued a notice on February 8, 2018, for not declaring her property adding that as Khan was not in the country at the time she could not comply.
