No financial wrongdoing found against Jahangir Tareen: Imran Khan

Aziz's remarks came after the Supreme Court disqualified PTI Secretary General Jahangir Tareen but ruled in favour of PTI Chairperson Imran Khan in its judgment on the disqualification case against the two party leaders.

Headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar a three-judge bench had earlier on November 14 reserved the verdict after hearing arguments of the counsels of the parties concerned.

ISLAMABAD:Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Captain (R) Muhammad Safdar on Friday, while unleashing a verbal onslaught against Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leaders Imran Khan and Jahangir Tareen, said that they are "ineligible" by birth.

The Supreme Court referred the issue of foreign funding of PTI to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) for minute examination.

The allegations against Khan related to PTI foreign funding, offshore company Niazi Service Limited, London flat, Constitution Avenue flat and Bani Gala land.

The politician stated that he furnished the complete money trail regarding his financial transaction and submitted sixty documents.

The case was launched a year ago at the request by Hanif Abbasi, a leader of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, against Khan and Tareen.

In the view of significance of the verdict and a large number of people thronging the Supreme Court to hear the judgement, tight security has been ensured in and around the Court to avoid any untoward incident. Talking to private news channel, he said that their disqualification by courts will have no practical impact.

Article 62 (1)(f) - which sets the precondition for the head of government to be "sadiq and ameen" (truthful and honest) - had provided the grounds for the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif from holding public office in the July 28 judgement on the Panama Papers case.

The petition, filed by PML-N's Abbasi, sought Tareen and Imran's disqualification over non-disclosure of their assets and ownership of offshore companies.

The court disqualified for life Khan's close aide and PTI Secretary General Jahangir Khan Tareen in the same case.

This is the second major case involving the leader of a leading political party.
