SC to hear contempt of court case against Imran Khan on Friday

The Supreme Court of Pakistan will hear a contempt of court case against PTI Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan on Friday.

The case will be heard by a five-member larger bench led by Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial after the interior ministry’s petition was approved.

All parties involved have received notices in this regard from the SC’s registrar’s office.

Imran Khan stated that he was not aware of any “statement or undertaking” made by his party leadership on his behalf about the May 25 march in a response to the SC on October 31.

The PTI chairman and his attorneys were compelled by the SC’s ruling to respond by October 31 to the violations the party committed during the May 25 march, which prevented it from having its march adjacent to the Peshawar Morr between the H-9 and G-9 areas of Islamabad.

The top court asked Khan for a thorough response in this regard and postponed the hearing on November 5.

However, due to his injuries, Imran Khan was unable to appear in court. As a result, his attorney filed a motion asking for the hearing to be postponed.

Khan was accused of contempt of court on October 13 by the federal government for his demand for a long march to Islamabad.
