LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Friday convened a full bench to hear appeals on the disqualification of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader and former prime minister Imran Khan in the Toshakhana case.
According to information, Justices Abid Aziz Sheikh and Sajid Mehmood Sethi would join Chief Justice Muhammad Ameer Bhatti of the Lahore High Court (LHC) to form a three-person full bench.
The chief judge of the LHC had asked for a wider bench so that two distinct pleas could be heard in this matter.
On January 9, the case will be heard by a three-person panel led by LHC Chief Justice Muhammad Ameer Bhatti.
A bigger bench was requested earlier by the Lahore High Court judge in order to hear the appeal against Imran Khan’s disqualification in the Toshakhana case.
Jabir Abbas, a resident of Mianwali, presented his argument before Judge Sajid Mahmood Sethi via his attorney Azhar Siddique. The petitioner claimed in his application that the ECP cannot disqualify parliamentarians since it is not a court. It is important to remember that the ECP’s ruling in the Toshakhana reference deemed Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), ineligible.
