PTI condemns issuance of arrest warrant against Imran Khan

Non-Bailable warrant issued against PTI chief Imran Khan

Earlier in the day, the ECP had issued non-bailable arrest warrants of Imran in relation to a contempt of court case against him.

As per the recent reports, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has a non-bailable arrest warrant against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan.

Akbar S Babar, a former PTI leader, had filed the case with the ECP seeking Imran Khan's disqualification over allegations that his party was receiving funds from foreign sources.

The five-member ECP Bench was headed by Chief Election Commissioner Sardar Muhammad Raza heard the case. However, the court suspended the warrant following a petition from PTI.

According to PTI Spokesperson Naeemul Haq, the party is set to challenge the warrants in the Islamabad High Court (IHC), reported Pakistan media.

The documents - detailing bank transactions in connection with Khan's assets and accounts of his offshore company, Niazi Services Ltd - are not verified and have been submitted very late in the case, Abbasi argued in his petition, submitted separately with his reply in the case.

Hitting out at the ECP's order, Babar Awan, Imran Khan's chief counsel said, "A new warrant is issued in the same case where a (bailable) warrant was already suspended".

The ECP further accused him of underestimating the authority of the commission and "bringing it into disrepute and disrespect and to interfere with, obstruct, interrupt and prejudice the process of law and the due course of proceedings, and scandalising the commission".
