The Interior Ministry declaring Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s view as inaccurate has sought contempt of court proceedings against him.
The Interior Ministry has submitted the record of tweets, video messages and calls of PTI leaders to the Supreme Court in the contempt of court case against Imran Khan.
The case was heard by a five-member bench of the Supreme Court. The bench was headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial and comprised Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan, Justice Munib Akhtar, Justice Yahya Afridi and Justice Sayyed Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi.
The Interior Ministry has said that Imran Khan made a false statement in his written reply. It was stated that Imran Khan and PTI had plans to go to D-Chowk before starting the Long March and on the morning of May 25 the official account of PTI had asked to reach D-Chowk. It also stated that PTI leaders Faisal Javed and Shireen Mazari also tweeted to go to D-Chowk.
The Interior Ministry has said that PTI’s claim of installing mobile phone jammers is also contrary to the facts as there was evidence that social media was continuously used from the container. It also said that the leaders present on the container continuously tweeted on their social media accounts and shared video messages.
The Interior Ministry has further said that contempt of court action should be taken against Imran Khan and PTI for deliberately violating the orders of the Supreme Court.
Earlier in his written reply Imran Khan had expressed ignorance about the supreme court’s orders.
