PTI ordered to submit foreign funds details”

Meanwhile, Islamabad High Court (IHC) Thursday directed Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to provide party funding details to Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) within two weeks in a case regarding PTI's accounts scrutiny.

The IHC bench directed the commission to decide the party funding case against PTI in accordance with law and restrained it from providing such details to anyone, including Akbar S Babar, the petitioner in the party funding case pending before ECP. S Babar with regard to party's foreign funding case.

After nearly three years of litigation at different forums, Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani directed the PTI to submit the documents within a fortnight and allowed the ECP to act "as per law" once the documents - to be treated as confidential - are submitted.

Retired Justice Sardar Mohammad Raza chief election commissioner, during the hearing of the case stated that it is not understandable why PTI is not following the orders of ECP.

The party has failed to submit details of its accounts and funds to the ECP since the past two years, however, it has submitted the records to the Supreme Court.

The court accepted the PTI's condition that no one would be given access to the documents.

Headed by Chief Election Commissioner an ECP bench had taken up the complaint filed by an election monitoring team against the alleged violation of code of conduct by Yasin, who was elected as an MNA from NA-120 on a PML-N ticket in the 2008 general elections. However, the PTI lawyer still maintained that the matter is under observation in court.

The ECP's counsel, talking to the media, said the ECP has twice decided that it has jurisdiction to know the sources of funding of any party and whether it received funds from any prohibited sources.

The commission has adjourned the hearing of the case against Yasin till 14 September.
