Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) may arrest Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman and former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in a prohibited funding case, Pakistani news channel ARY News reported.
The federal agency had earlier registered a case against Mr Khan and ten others over accusations of receiving foreign funding.
The case was registered by the FIA Corporate Banking Circle. The case stated that Mr Khan and ten others allegedly violated the Foreign Exchange Act and were beneficiaries.
The case was first filed by PTI founding member Mr Akbar S Babar, who alleged serious financial irregularities in the party’s funding, in 2014.
In 2018, a scrutiny committee was formed to examine the party’s financing. The committee submitted its report in January 2022, after repeated hearings.
The report claimed that the party’s leadership committed gross violations of funding laws, by allegedly allowing collection of foreign funds without any source details.
The party has denied any wrongdoing.
