Islamabad court upholds Imran’s arrest warrants

ISLAMABAD: On Monday, the federal capital’s district and sessions court denied Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Imran Khan’s request to have the non-bailable arrest warrant issued for him in the Toshakhana case revoked.

A non-bailable arrest warrant for the former prime minister was issued on February 28 by Additional Sessions Judge Zafar Iqbal of an Islamabad court due to his non-appearance.

After a brief hearing of the arguments in the case, Additional Session judge Zafar Iqbal pronounced the decision he had reserved earlier in the day.

Ali Bukhari, Qaiser Imam, and Gohar Ali Khan, Khan’s attorneys, stood before the court during today’s hearing.

An Islamabad police squad arrived in Lahore yesterday to arrest Khan, but PTI supporters at Zaman Park fought the authorities.

Toshakhana decision

Imran Khan, a former prime minister and the leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, was disqualified by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in the Toshakhana reference pursuant to Article 63(1). (p).

“As per the statement of Khan, he had acquired the gifts from Toshakhana paying 21.564 million rupees but the Cabinet Division maintained that the goods had a worth of 107.943 million,” the ECP stated in the written verdict.

He had around half the value of the government present in his bank account. Imran Khan was required to disclose the cash and bank account information in his tax forms, but he did not, according to the ECP judgment.
