Imran Khan claims that SKMT funds invested in offshore businesses

Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), revealed that the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Trust (SKMT) charity monies were invested in two offshore firms

The former prime minister said this while testifying in a Rs 10 billion defamation action he had brought against Defence Minister Khawaja Asif over the latter’s alleged misappropriation of cancer hospital contributions.

Khawaja Asif’s accusations were refuted by Imran Khan when he appeared via video link before the district and sessions court in Islamabad.

“I don’t know the decisions made by the Shaukat Khanum Hospital,” Khan remarked during the cross-examination. I am not consulted before decisions are made by the hospital board. Now, I am aware that the hospital made investments in two foreign corporations.

According to Khan, the hospital invested $3 million in a housing project in 2008, but the money was returned to the hospital in 2015.

The largest medical charity in the nation is the Shaukat Khanum Hospital, according to Khan. In Pakistan, I am the greatest fundraiser. Khawaja Asif made unfounded accusations against me.

He insisted that if questions were raised about their spending, nobody would donate, and he added that he wanted to “rescue the hospital.

According to Khan, the PTI is the only party in the nation that is funded by donations. He begged the court to make a decision as soon as possible.

The hearing was postponed until March 4 by the court
