Dubai-based businessman Umar Farooq Zahoor has said that he was vindicated after PTI Chairman Imran Khan was found guilty of corruption, reported 24NewsHDTV channel.
Umar Farooq Zahoor had earlier said that Farah Gogi, friend of Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi, had sold an expensive Graff wristwatch — gifted to former premier by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman — for $2 million, worth approximately Rs280 million at the time of sale in 2019.
In reaction to Imran Khan’s conviction and his subsequent arrest, Umar Farooq Zahoor in a tweet said “I am vindicated. Imran Khan found guilty of corruption. The court accepts my account that Imran Khan sold Graff watch to me for $2 million via Farah Gogi in Dubai. The court and evidence confirmed my facts.”
In November last year, Zahoor had come forward and said he was the owner of the watch gifted to the former prime minister featuring an image of the Holy Kaaba.
The precious item had been described as Diamond MasterGraff Tourbillon Minute Repeater with Makkah Map Dial GM2751.
Zahoor had said he bought the precious watch from former prime minister Imran Khan’s trusted family friend Farah Gogi after paying a hefty amount of $2 million.
