LAHORE: The PPP says payment of fine by Prime Minister Imran Khan’s sister for the properties she owns in Dubai is, in fact, a case of confession of holding illegal assets as she hasn’t mentioned them in her tax record.

“As Aleema Khan has agreed to pay the Federal Board of Revenue 25 per cent tax as much fine for her Dubai properties, it means she has admitted the illegality in holding the assets,” PPP deputy information secretary said in a statement here on Friday. He said the real question was how she did get the money to buy these expensive assets.

The PPP leader said Aleema Khan would have to satisfy the people and courts if she was ever summoned by the judiciary. He said Aleema Khan could be tried under money laundering laws if she failed to provide the bank transactions record.
