LONDON: The former wife of Prime Minister Imran Khan, Reham Khan, has filed an unconditional apology in British Courts over allegations related to Aneel Musarrat that he was involved in the secret purchase of the Hotel Roosevelt and made an undue advantage in the alleged sale of the hotel because of his close ties with PM Khan.
In an apology sent to The News and Geo, Reham Khan said: “I am the official operator of Reham Khan’s Youtube channel and in the video posted on 6 December 2019, I was referring to Aneel Musarrat and I made a number of comments and insinuations about Aneel Musarrat. “
“In an attempt to make amends, I have deleted the video and I completely retract my comment and apologize to Mr. Musarrat for any damage or loss that may have occurred to Mr. Musarrat, his business, or the charity he supports. I will not comment further on this matter ”.
It is understood Aneel Musarrat issued court proceedings about six months ago, asking Khan to drop his charges or provide evidence. Both sides confirmed that the matter was resolved out of court after Reham agreed to issue clarifications and apologies.
Speaking to The News and Geo, Aneel Musarrat confirmed that he has resolved the defamation case with Reham Khan and is happy to move on. He said: “I have never had anything to do with a sale or purchase or anything related to the Roosevelt Hotel. I have done all my business in the UK and Europe and I do it through fair competition. I have never done anything unethical and have never tried to use my friends or networks to gain an improper or unfair advantage. My friendship with PM Imran Khan has nothing to do with any business I am in. I do not do any business in Pakistan to avoid conflict of interest issues and I will continue to defend this position. I am happy that Reham Khan came out with a clarification and resolved this issue. “
