The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has heard a petition filed by the Cabinet Division that had challenged the order given by The Pakistan Information Commission (PIC) in a petition before the IHC to release the details of gifts received by former Prime Minister Imran.
The Islamabad High Court in its remarks said that it should not have been a policy to take a gift home by paying a certain percentage of money. Making such a policy means selling the gifts.
Justice Mian Gul Hassan Aurangzeb remarked that the gift given to the government of Pakistan goes to the office of the prime minister . These gifts are not to be taken home. If someone has taken home a gift from abroad, take it back. People come and go. The Prime Minister’s Office lives there.
Justice Mian Gul Hassan in his remarks said that the gifts of the last twenty years should be viewed in the same way. If there is any constitutional interpretation to be made, we will do it. Take back the gifts from the people who have taken them home.https://www.express.pk/story/2312863/1/
