Chief Justice Saqib Nisar asked the chairman FBR if the premier’s sister owns any property in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and further inquired if she had benefited from an amnesty scheme.

FBR officials present in court informed the bench that Aleema had availed an amnesty scheme and her tax details were confidential.

The SC then summoned complete records of Aleema’s property.

Following this, notices were dispatched to all individuals involved in acquiring properties in the name of another person. However, since the premier’s sister was abroad at the time, the notice was sent to her via e-mail.
