Reham Khan tenders unconditional apology to Zulfiqar Bukhari after losing defamation case

Former Special Assistant to Prime Minister Syed Zulfi Bukhari has won the first round of defamation suit against Reham Khan, former wife of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

LONDON: Former wife of Prime Minister Imran Khan, Reham Khan has formally apologised to PM Khan’s former Special Assistant Zulfiqar Bukhari in a case of broadcasting a defamatory video on social media.

The apology came after the former host lost a defamation case to Zulfiqar Bukhari at the London High Court. In a video released early today, the 48-year-old conveyed her unconditional apology to Bukhari for broadcasting a defamatory video on social media while agreeing to withdraw all allegations and pay the sum of £50,000 in costs and damages.

Reham also regretted re-tweeting three tweets carrying defamatory allegations of corruption, nepotism, and embezzlement. It all started in December 2019, when Reham had talked about the sale of Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan and raised the question of Bukhari’s alleged involvement in the sale in a YouTube broadcast.

However, after losing the defamation case, the Tomlin Order sealed by the High Court of Justice in London has ordered Reham to apologise and pay damages ahead of a full defamation trial in the case, following a determination at the same court in June this year.

She will tweet the apology and clarification in both English and Urdu and pin it to her Twitter account for at least 3 consecutive days.  Similarly, she would also issue the same apology in both English and Urdu on her YouTube channel and Facebook page.
