Digital Desk, New Delhi. Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has concealed funds received from foreign nationals and companies and details of dozens of their bank accounts. This has been confirmed by a report compiled by the Investigative Committee of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
According to The Dawn report, the party has underreported an amount of Rs 31.2 crore in the four-year period between FY 2009-10 and FY 2012-13. According to the information received from the annual statement, in the financial year 2012-13 alone, an amount of more than Rs 14.5 crore was not reported.
According to the report, the opinion of the chartered accountant on the accounts of PTI as of now does not differ from the principles and standards. It also raises questions on the certificate signed by PTI chairman Imran Khan, which has been submitted with details of audited accounts of PTI.
The report also mentions the controversy over allowing four PTI employees to receive funds in their personal accounts, but says it is beyond the scope of his job to verify their accounts. The report came to the fore when the ECP resumed hearing of the foreign funding case against PTI on Tuesday after a gap of nearly nine months. The matter is pending since November 2014.
