The affidavit submitted by the party turned out to be fake
Let us inform that PTI presented an affidavit of Arif Masood Naqvi before the Election Commission of Pakistan which said that all the amount collected in the accounts of WCL was deposited in the account of PTI in Pakistan. This affidavit has been proved to be false/fake as in May 2013 two more transactions were also done from WCL in two different accounts in Pakistan. Last month, the Election Commission, in its judgment in the prohibited money case against PTI, said that the party had actually received the prohibited funds.
A three-member ECP bench headed by Chief Election Commissioner Sikander (CEC) Sultan Raja said the party knowingly received funds from Wootton Cricket Limited. The party was the ‘willing recipient’ of the prohibited funds of US$ 2,121,500.
