Shehbaz Sharif Suit Imran Khan
LAHORE: Chief Minister of Punjab Shehbaz Sharif on Monday sent Rs10 billion defamation suit to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan over bribe claim.
According to the sources, Advocate Khawaja Haris forwarded the notice to Imran Khan on his Bani Gala residence and party office in Islamabad, asking to apologize over accusing incumbent government of offering him Rs10 billion to stay mum on Panama Leaks issue.
Earlier, addressing participants at the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre (SKMCH&RC) in Peshawar, Imran Khan claimed that Shahbaz Sharif’s ally offered him Rs 10 billion to stay quiet on Panamagate but said that he would name the person if the government moves to court against him with a defamation suit.
“I am not naming the person because of the reason that revenge will be taken from him by PML-N,” he said.
When the reporter asked him whether there will be a u-turn on this statement too, Imran Khan asserted that he had never done anything of that sort in the past. “I have never taken any u-turn but Nawaz Sharif not only takes u-turns but is a liar too,” said Khan.
