PTI to sue PM Nawaz Sharif for ‘taking funds’ from Bin Laden

With ‘revelations’ made in certain interviews and a book as its evidence, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) intends to open up a shady chapter in the country’s political history from the late 1980s in an apparent bid to further malign Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

After expressing its intention to file a petition with the Supreme Court seeking implementation of the Asghar Khan case verdict, the PTI on Monday announced it would also approach the apex court against the PM for allegedly taking money from al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden to finance jihad – money which it claims was later utilised in 1989 to conspire against Benazir Bhutto’s first government.

PTI spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry said he would file within the ongoing week a petition in the Supreme Court seeking admission of a case against Prime Minister Sharif for “taking funds from a foreign individual to destabilise and conspire against democracy in Pakistan”.
