Islamabad: All Pakistan Muslim League APML Central Information Secretary Aasia Ishaque refuted reports carried in some section of the print and electronic media regarding evasion of taxes by the APML Chief Pervez Musharraf, says a press release.
She said that the APML Chief had declared his assets to the Election Commission of Pakistan, which were subject to payment of taxes and the same was done in lines with the provisions of the law. The reports were not appropriate and were meant to defame the APML Chief.
She said that any citizen of the country that lived abroad for a limited period of 180 days was not liable to pay the taxes on his assets to the national chequer while his property was listed abroad.
She regretfully stated that there were some media that wanted to defame the APML Chief at the behest of his rivals. She said that the APML Chief had neither left the country nor he returned to the country under any open or secret deal.
