ISLAMABAD: The examination of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) accounts restarted on Monday after the Election Compensation of Pakistan (ECP) gave 3 added days on the application of the petitioner in the foreign funding case, Akbar S. Babar.
However, the ECP declined to enable perusal of initial PTI bank statements on the guidelines of the State Bank of Pakistan, a duplicated demand of Mr Babar, who is also a founding member of the party.

Earlier, the perusal of PTI accounts had concluded on May 20 based on the ECP order of April 14, permitting perusal for eight days or 40 hrs.
Talking to the media at the final thought of Monday’s procedures, Mr Babar criticised the decision of holding back initial bank declarations of the PTI from the perusal procedure.
He claimed revealing complete truths at this phase would just bring credibility to the scrutiny procedure as well as avoid additional delays in a currently postponed examination procedure. He stated there was no logic and reasoning of maintaining the initial PTI accounts secret.
