Islamabad, Nov 27 : Senior Supreme Court Lawyer Mohammad Akram Sheikh, who had prosecuted former military ruler retired Gen Pervez Musharraf on treason charges and later pleaded a case seeking disqualification of Prime Minister Imran Khan, claimed that his bank accounts had been frozen and he was unable to run his law office.
Besides this, he said on Monday, he had also received a notice from the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) for Rs11.
2 million as advance tax for the tax year 2018, reports Pakistan daily- Dawn.
“How can I pay tax, even if I had to, when the bank accounts have been frozen and the deadline for making payments is fast approaching?” asked Mr Sheikh while talking to reporters at the Supreme Court building. “How can I pay salaries of my staff or clear utility bills if the bank accounts remain seized?” he wondered.
