ECP summons Bilawal over 'hidden assets'

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has summoned Pakistan People’s Party Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on June 10 on charges of hiding assets.

The commission issued a notice to the PPP lawmaker allegedly for hiding assets while applying for contesting the general election in 2013. In January too, the commission summoned the PPP chairman over variations in his statement of assets and liabilities.

Reportedly, an official said the commission issued a notice pointing out variations in his statement of asset but he could not give a satisfactory reply.

But a spokesperson for Bilawal said no notice was received and after receiving the notification, the lawyers would be consulted before going to show up at the commission.
