ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has served Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) leader Khawaja Asif with a defamation notice.

Asif had blamed Khan of speculating in Dubai real estate with the donations he had collected for his charity hospital for cancer patients. He also alleged that Khan had transferred Rs4.50 billion outside the country from Shaukhat Khanum Memorial Hospital accounts.

In an earlier press conference, Khan had shunned Asif’s allegations as “baseless”, and he had declared that he would take Asif to court.

The PTI chief had said that the allegations had caused damage to the fund collection for “Pakistan’s biggest charity hospital” and that if this continues, thousands of patients will be affected.

In order to transfer funds to Dubai from Pakistan, there is absolutely no need to send the wire to British Virgin Islands first, unless someone is trying to remove/diminish the fingerprints. Just wondering!!!!!!
