Imran Is Given One Final Opportunity By IHC To Appear
February 6, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News
Imran Khan was granted one more chance by the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to appear in person for pre-arrest bail in the issue of banned funding that the Federal Investigation Agency is looking into (FIA).
Salman Safdar, Imran’s lawyer, requested an exemption from the petitioner’s personal attendance on the grounds that the bullet wounds to his legs had not yet healed.
According to a written ruling issued by Justice Saman Rafat, a single judge on the IHC bench, on January 31.
The judge stated in the written decision, “In view of this, petitioner is excused from personal presence before this court for today only with warning of ultimate last opportunity,” adding that no additional exemption related personal appearance would be given.
The order stated, “Learned counsel for petitioner is apprised that no further exemption regarding personal appearance of petitioner in the instant petition for pre-arrest bail shall be granted if on the next date of hearing, i.e. 10.02.2023, if the petitioner fails to appear in person before this court.”
Imran Khan, who is also the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), was the subject of a criminal investigation after the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) released a fact-finding report on August 2 of last year. Later, the FIA was asked to look into the situation.
After the attempted assassination on him in Wazirabad, it is known that Imran would submit a letter to the investigating officer (IO) to explain his health situation.
According to sources, he would also inform the IO of the extreme security danger and ask that his testimony in the matter be taken at his present apartment in Zaman Park, Lahore.
