Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs, Ali Haider Zaidi, has shared the video of Prime Minister Imran Khan appearing for the virtual hearing in front of additional district and session judge in the Khawaja Asif defamation case.
On December 17th, PM Imran Khan had appeared before the court via video link and verified the affidavit submitted by him in the court. The video shows the premier took an oath to speak the truth in front of the court.
The judge began the proceeding by asking PM Imran Khan if he is aware of the content of the affidavit. “Are you aware of the content of the affidavit,” the judge asked PM Khan to which he replied, “Yes he is and he has given a statement on oath through his lawyer Waleed Iqbal.”
The minister while sharing the video said, “He is working now on bringing back the real moral values that the corrupt political elite of our country had buried & forgotten! It has been an honor & a privilege to be associated with PM @ImranKhanPTI who will eventually change the fate of this great nation.”

PMLN leader Khawaja Asif had accused PTI leader Imran Khan of speculating in the real estate of Dubai with the funds collected in the name of the charity for the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital back in 2012. Resultantly, Pakistan Tehreek-I-Insaf chairman, Imran Khan, had served Khawaja Asif a defamation notice.
Asif further alleged that Khan had transferred Rs. 4.50 billion outside the country from the account of Shaukat Khanum Hospital. PM Imran Khan challenged his claims, and in his notice, he said that such vile campaigns had affected the fund collection for cancer hospitals and the patients.
