The Judge Will Not Rule On Imran’s Warrant Revocation
March 6, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News
According to the PTI chief’s attorney, a private complainant’s warrant issuing has been somewhat delayed.
On Monday, an Islamabad district and sessions court reserved judgement on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan’s application to revoke the non-bailable warrant that had been issued for him in the Toshakhana case.
Lawyers Qaiser Imam, Gohar, and Ali Bukhari submitted a plea in the court of Additional Sessions Judge Zafar Iqbal on behalf of the ousted prime minister.
Imam argued that since the issue of a warrant in a private complaint had been “to some extent averted,” the court ought to revoke Imran’s arrest warrant.
In his remarks, Judge Iqbal said that Imran’s attorneys had informed them that he would not be appearing in court on February 28.
The court then put the decision on hold.
The PTI leader arrived to Islamabad’s judicial complex on February 28 with members of his party to defend himself against allegations of terrorism and illegal finance.
It is important to note that the sessions court is in F-8 Kachehri, which is about a half-hour drive from the courthouse and where the PTI leader had to appear in the Toshakhana reference and an attempted murder case.
Imran’s attorney had asked the judge at the Toshakhana reference hearings to postpone the hearing by an additional five days.
The defence attorney had stated that he was unable to appear in court with the deposed premier. He had however added that if his client was able to escape the courthouse in time, he would show up in court.
When he issued the non-bailable warrants, Judge Iqbal had postponed the hearing until March 7. (tomorrow).
The PTI leader avoided arrest in the most recent incident a day earlier when his supporters stopped the Islamabad police from accessing his Zaman Park mansion in Lahore amid intense drama.
Nonetheless, Imran was given the notice by the police, who gave it to his chief of staff Shibli Faraz, for “compliance” with the arrest warrants issued by the federal capital’s sessions court in the Toshakhana case.
