Supreme Court resumes hearing of Imran’s disqualification case

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Tuesday resumed its hearing into PML-N leader Hanif Abbasi’s petition seeking disqualification of PTI Chairman Imran Khan and Secretary General Jahangir Tareen.

Abbasi has sought the PTI leaders’ disqualification over non-declaration of their offshore companies in nomination papers and running party affairs through foreign funding.

A three-member bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar and comprising Justice Umar Ata Bandial and Justice Faisal Arab, has been hearing the case since November 2016.

Yesterday, PTI’s counsel Advocate Anwar Mansoor Khan completed his arguments on the matter of the party’s foreign funding.

Abbasi’s lawyer Muhammad Akram Sheikh claimed that PTI has submitted forged documents to the apex court that show foreign remittances collected from dual nationals or people of Pakistani origin, adding that the party is hiding the donations from allegedly prohibited sources.
