Supreme Court to finalize Imran Khan disqualification case

Islamabad: The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Tuesday decided to conclude hearing of Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Imran Khan’s disqualification Case; however, the Supreme Court of Pakistan has not reserved its judgment over the case.

A three-member bench which is headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, at the conclusion of the case hearing, observed that since the court further requires assistance in the matter of Jahangir Tareen; therefore the ruling is not being reserved.

The hearing of General Secretary of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Jahangir Tareen’s case will be tomorrow.

Lawyer of the petitioner Akram Sheikh presented his arguments before the Supreme Court of Pakistan today. He said that PTI Chairman Imran Khan did not declare his assets and liabilities in nomination papers for contesting the general elections in 2013.

Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar observed that PTI Chairman Imran Khan did not change his stance in the case from day one. Further, he said, 94 percent money trail has been proved by Imran Khan which prima facie doesn’t show any mala fide or deceit.

On Sept 25, Imran Khan moved a fresh rejoinder insisting that his repayment of a loan to his Ex-wife Jemima Khan was a matter that had been settled between him (Imran Khan) and wife (Jemima Khan), leaving nothing to declare to any authority, including the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).

The Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) is claiming that Jemima Khan was the front person of Imran Khan when he (Imran Khan) was acquiring a 300-Kanal house at Bani Gala.

Imran Khan’s lawyer has claimed that use of the term “benami” by Jemima in the power of attorney document was an error.
