Non-bailable arrest warrants issued for Imran Khan

Non-bailable arrest warrants issued for Imran Khan

Minister for Privatization Daniyal Aziz has said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan is a proclaimed offender in a case of terrorism, but is not being arrested. He said the decision was hastily announced without determining the jurisdictions.

Earlier on Sept 15, the ECP had ordered Imran Khan to appear before it but later issued bailable arrest warrants after the PTI chief failed to appear.

PTI leader Babar Awan declared the ECP decision unconstitutional and said the party will file a petition in Islamabad High Court (IHC) against the verdict.

The IHC has yet to decide on Imran's petition challenging the power of the top poll body to prosecute a contempt case. The ECP had directed Khan to submit his reply by September 25.

The PTI chief's counsel then requested the ECP to withdraw the show-cause notice issued on September 24.

Babar Awan assured the court that the PTI chairman would reply to the ECP's show-cause notice with regards to contempt proceedings against him.

IHC's larger bench, comprising Justice Aamer Farooq, Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb, suspended the top electoral body's order while directing counsel for the PTI Babar Awan to submit a reply to the show-cause notice duly signed by Khan before the ECP by September 25.

Akbar Babar, the petitioner who had filed the foreign funding case against the PTI leadership, had informed the ECP that the PTI chief had accused it of being biased in the foreign funding case following which his counsel tendered an apology with the commission.

In 2014, Babar moved the ECP to disqualify PTI Chairman Imran Khan for allegedly taking funds from illegal sources and irregularities in the bank accounts of the party.
