ISLAMABAD: PM Imran Khan’s former Special Assistant Sayed Zulfi Bukhari win a defamation case from Reham Khan and has reportedly paid £50,000 as a contribution towards Bukhari’s costs and damages.
In a statement attached with the court order, which she agreed to publish, Reham withdrew all allegations and rendered a full and unconditional apology.
Zulfi Bukhari had sued Reham Khan at the London High Court after she published a video on her YouTube channel, Facebook and Twitter on 6 December 2019, claiming that Bukhari was involved in a “corrupt plan with the prime minister to sell or acquire the Roosevelt Hotel in New York at lesser value for his benefit.”
She will tweet the apology and clarification in both English and Urdu. The apology will remain pinned to her Twitter account for at least three consecutive days.
In her apology statement, Reham mentioned each allegation against Zulfi and termed them as “false and untrue.”
“I unconditionally apologise to Zulfi Bukhari for the significant distress, upset, and embarrassment which these publications caused him,” she further added.
While complying with the settlement, Reham also released a video reading out her full and unconditional apology to Zulfi, who then shared the video with the headline “Truth always wins!”
