Imran Khan has been brought before an accountability court in Islamabad. He was charged in the Toshakhana case, which was heard at Sessions Court by Judge Humayun Dilawar.

Imran Khan declined to acknowledge the accusation. He sought that the case be moved to a different court because he stated he didn’t trust the judge.
