The Lahore High Court ordered the government lawyer to submit an affidavit along with Tosha Khana’s records
Lahore (92 News) – The Lahore High Court has directed the federal government lawyer to submit an affidavit along with the records of Tosha Khana.
A hearing was held on the application regarding the provision of details of the persons receiving donations from Tosha Khana.
Justice Asim Hafeez said the head of Tosha Khana should give an affidavit saying how these donations are secret? If the court is satisfied that the donations should be confidential, the court will not order them to be made public.
The Cabinet Department’s position was that the Prime Minister’s Office had issued a notification in 2015 regarding keeping Tosha Khana’s details confidential. As details become public, they are splashed in the media, which can affect international relations.
The court said that you have written in the reply that Toshah Khana’s donations are coming out in public and it is becoming a media hype.
The learned judge asked, is this the only reason why Tosha Khana’s gifts are kept secret? Where did national security and international relations come from? What if a BMW car comes as a gift and is asked to replace it with an LNG contract?
On behalf of the petitioner, Advocate Azhar Siddique asked how the details of Imran Khan’s donations came to light despite the ban since 2015? What action was taken against the person who disclosed the details?
In response, the federal government took a stand that the details of Imran Khan were not published, the court adjourned the hearing until February 7.
