Judge threatening case: Imran Khan’s non-bailable arrest warrant issued

Published

ISLAMABAD: An Islamabad court on Wednesday issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in the judge-threatening case.

Civil judge Malik Aman announced the verdict rejecting former premier Imran Khan’s petition seeking exemption from today’s hearing.

The court also directed the PTI chief to appear before it on April 18.

During the hearing, Khan’s lawyers requested to retain his bailable arrest warrant as he was facing security threats.

“Imran Khan has security concerns, his life is in danger, the Islamabad High Court has also issued notices for withdrawing security from him,” the PTI chief’s counsel said.

At this, the judge said that no one has appeared on behalf of the prosecution yet, let’s see what they have to say.

Later, the court adjourned the hearing of the case till 11am.

After the break, Prosecutor Raja Rizwan Abbasi appeared in Civil Judge Malik Aman’s court and opposed Imran Khan’s plea for exemption from today’s appearance.

The prosecutor said that Khan is absent and the bailable warrant should be changed to non-bailable. 

“Even the plea is not signed by him.”

After the arguments were completed by both parties on the plea, the court reserved the verdict which was announced later.

The charges, in this case, are related to a speech by Khan in which he allegedly threatened police and a female judge last year after one of his close aides, Shahbaz Gill, was denied bail in a sedition case. 

The cricket star turned politician has faced a barrage of legal woes since his ouster in a confidence vote in April last year by a united opposition led by his successor, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif. 

A convicted politician is liable to be disqualified for at least five years under the laws of the land.

Specifics state that President Asif Ali Zardari will also be present at the consultative meeting with the leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) on the subject.

Participants in the meeting, which would see the Attorney General brief them on the various legal elements of the cases, included PML-N leaders Ishaq Dar, Azam Tarar, Atta Tarar, Irfan Qadir, Ahad Cheema, and Sardar Ayaz Sadiq.

Ayyar Bokhari, Sherry Rehman, and Farooq H. Naek would be attending the meeting on behalf of the PPP.

The PML-N leaders, according to sources, would also have faith in the PPP leadership when it came to using Article 6 to remove three of the PTI’s most important leaders.

Amid escalating tensions, Faisal Vawda forecasts the political demise of the PTI.

Political unrest is likely to approach, as Faisal Vawda noted that PTI will confront formidable obstacles.

Pakistan cannot support any anarchist party. According to Vawda, PTI must change into PTI-P in the same way as MQM becomes MQM-P.

In his critique of the PTI’s present political approach, he implied that the organization’s latest moves and catchphrases are the result of trust established by legal rulings. According to Vawda, PTI is now in a precarious position because these activities have put them over the constitutional line.

“PTI has been shouting anti-institutional slogans ten times ahead of the court order; they should be prepared for the bulldozer now,” Vawda remarked.

Furthermore, according to Vawda, it is improbable that PTI’s founder will be released from prison. Instead, PTI’s future will be determined by government policies and internal calculations.

He said that the intelligence to overthrow the government is within the Pakistan Democratic Movement II (PDM-2).

Furthermore, the senator charged that the government was misrepresenting PTI and the institutions and deliberately causing uncertainty.

He predicted that the political atmosphere would intensify and that the administration might not abide by the rulings of the Supreme Court, contributing to the situation’s complexity.
