  1. PTI Chairman Imran Khan. Photo: File ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has challenged in the Islamabad High Court the non-bailable arrest warrants issued against him by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). On October 12, the ECP issued non-bailable arrest warrants for the PTI chief in relation to a contempt of court case against him. The petition states that the ECP has made him a target of political victimisation and exceeded its jurisdiction. It also states that the commission has violated his basic rights by issuing the warrants. The five-member ECP, bench headed by Chief Election Commissioner Justice (retd) Sardar Raza Khan, has ordered the police to arrest Imran and present him before the commission on October 26. Earlier, on September 14, the ECP had issued bailable warrants against Imran to ensure his presence in the case. The ECP had ordered Imran to submit a surety bond of Rs100,000 until September 25 and nominate two persons who would ensure payment of the amount and be held responsible otherwise. ECP issues non-bailable arrest warrants for Imran Khan The ECP ordered that the PTI chief should be arrested and presented before it on October 26 Imran was also ordered to appear on that day in the commission in person. However, the PTI approached the IHC which, on September 20, suspended the bailable arrest warrants. The ECP had issued the contempt notice to Khan on January 24 over his ?scandalous remarks? about the commission. Akbar Babar, the petitioner who had filed the foreign funding case against the PTI leadership, had informed the ECP that the PTI chief had accused it of being biased in the foreign funding case following which his counsel tendered an apology with the commission. Babar is also one of the founding members of the PTI. Several times since then, Imran has accused the ECP, among other government bodies, of being compromised and working for the benefit of Nawaz Sharif, the former prime minister and head of the ruling party, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.

Chaudhry also told the media that Imran has submitted his decades-old money trail to the Supreme Court in the disqualification case against him. The PTI leader also criticised the lodging of cases against his party chief, saying they are a mere revenge plot after the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif as prime minister in the Panama Papers case. "Imran doesn?t have a single share in Niazi Services Limited," he claimed further. PTI Karachi leader Ali Zaidi also spoke to the media after Chaudhry.

Photo: Geo News ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz wants to give the current accountability process a political shade, said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Monday.

During the interview, the PTI chief said he had to pay a debt of Rs2 million for expenses incurred during the 2002 elections and he had also sold his vehicle for this purpose. The PTI chairman had claimed that his brother-in-law was losing about Rs1 million in betting when he offered advice on the condition that he (brother-in-law) will help him in paying the debt if he won over Rs1 million. Imran said he gave advice to his brother-in-law for about three or four hours for betting during which he not only removed the Rs1 million deficit but won Rs2 million more as well. Imran insisted there was nothing wrong with the deal as the funds were not transferred to the party as it was his personal loan and he had returned the loan of Rs2 million won through gambling. While speaking to the media, Marriyum also called Imran a fugitive, saying he was on the run from the court. ?Those raising slogans of corruption in the Supreme Court are themselves escaping the court.?

Photo: Geo News SUKKUR: Opposition leader Khurshid Shah said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf disgraced itself by approaching the leadership of Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan to challenge his position as Opposition Leader in National Assembly. Speaking at a press conference, he said it would be a good development if there is anyone better than him to take his position. Responding to a question, he said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf should first apologize to the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan's leadership for the accusations they have leveling against it in the past. "PTI should apologize for hurting the sentiments of people of Karachi," he said. "One thing is certain that one among them was right about the other." The Pakistan Peoples? Party representative said that Chairman Senate is appointed after a mutual consent from government and opposition, and in case if both the parties reach to fail any consensus, the matter would be referred to a 12-member committee. Shah said that a drama is being played right now in the country to destabilize parliament. He added that his party will continue to play its positive role for strengthening democracy in the country, and will not be involved in any drama. PTI has started making efforts to replace Opposition Leader in the National Assembly with its own member, Shah Mehmood Qureshi. The PTI is seeking political support to make Qureshi the opposition leader before the caretaker government steps in prior to the General Elections 2018. The caretaker government is set up in consultation between the opposition and present government. According to sources, the PTI has also established back door contact with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan. PTI officials said if all the opposition parties unite against the Pakistan Peoples Party then a new opposition leader can emerge in the Lower House of Parliament. Sources said the PTI has started approaching different political parties in this regard.
  21. ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan's counsel submitted his client's reply today over the contempt case in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). The five-member ECP bench, headed by Chief Election Commissioner Justice (retd) Sardar Raza Khan, heard the case. Babar Awan, the PTI chief's counsel, submitted Imran's reply before the ECP bench. At the last hearing on September 14, the ECP had issued bailable warrants against Imran to ensure his presence in the case. However, the PTI approached the Islamabad High Court (IHC) against the issuance of warrants. The IHC, on September 20, suspended the bailable arrest warrants. Hearing the case, Justice Aamer Farooq, who headed a three-member larger bench, directed the PTI chief to reply to the ECP's show-cause notice. Awan assured the court that the PTI chairman would reply to the ECP's show-cause notice with regards to contempt proceedings against him. The IHC then adjourned the hearing until September 26. The ECP had ordered Imran to submit a surety bond of Rs100,000 until September 25 and nominate two persons who would ensure payment of the amount and be held responsible otherwise. Imran was also ordered to appear on that day in the commission in person. Earlier, on September 14, during the hearing of contempt proceedings, Awan had argued before the ECP that proceedings against his client should be postponed until the matter is decided by the high court. The ECP had summoned Imran in person on that as well but he failed to do so. The ECP had issued the contempt notice to Khan on January 24 over his ?scandalous remarks? about the commission. Akbar Babar, the petitioner who had filed the foreign funding case against the PTI leadership, had informed the ECP that the PTI chief had accused it of being biased in the foreign funding case following which his counsel tendered an apology with the commission.

  23. KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on Wednesday came down hard on the leaders of Pakistan Peoples Party and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, while speaking to journalists on Wednesday. Khan said Nawaz and Zardari are responsible for the country?s adverse situation. ?The [2006] Charter of Democracy was an underhand deal between them. The entire country is in debt but they have become billionaires,? he said, adding, ?Look at the children of Ishaq Dar, Nawaz Sharif and Zardari ? they are all billionaires.? The PTI chairman said that his focus is now on Sindh and announced that after Muharram he will visit various districts of the province. ?In December, we will organise a huge public gathering at Mazar-e-Quaid,? he vowed. Khan said that corruption is rampant in Sindh than any other province of the country. ?There is a commission on every project in Sindh and the money is being laundered to Dubai by [Zardari's sister] Faryal Talpur,? he alleged. Khan said that Opposition Leader Khurshid Shah and PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif are on the same page as the sitting government gave huge development funds to the opposition leader, adding that a genuine opposition leader is needed to keep a check on government. Taking a jibe at the PML-N chief, he said Nawaz destroyed every institution of the country by placing his cronies as their head in view of protecting his corruption. He accused the government of maligning the army as well. ?It is the first time that the army chief is repeatedly saying that 'we won't impose martial law', 'we stand with democracy', but they have issues because the army has not become Punjab Police and the judges today are not Justice Qayyum who used to write decisions on their telephone calls.?

  25. ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry came down hard on the Sharif family on Tuesday for failing to appear before the accountability court hearing corruption references against them. Speaking to the media outside the Election Commission of Pakistan, he pleaded the Supreme Court's monitoring judge, Justice Ijazul Ahsan, to take notice of the Sharif family's non-appearance today. "Had this been another country, no sitting senator could dare lie like this in court," said Chaudhry, referring to Senator Asif Kirmani's reported plea in court today that the Sharifs' London residence addresses are unknown to him. "The entire country knows the Sharifs? London address. The prime minister and federal minister met Nawaz Sharif in London but the court is being told their addresses are unavailable," he claimed. He said the accountability judge should have taken notice of this "non-serious attitude". "Kirmani should have been arrested in court for making a mockery of the court," he said. After no-show, NAB court again summons Sharif family on Sept 26 Sharif family members in London to be with Kulsoom Nawaz, Senator Kirmani tells court Chaudhry, who is a lawyer by profession, said giving a week's adjournment in such a case is strange, adding that there should be day-to-day hearings of this case. He appealed to the monitoring judge to should take notice of the lax proceedings in the accountability court, saying, "the entire country?s eyes are fixed on this trial". "The entire world is watching who is running away from the courts now," he said, informing that the NAB law comprises three years in prison for those who fail to show up in court during proceedings. The PTI leader also criticised the "deliberate" campaign to malign state institutions by the ruling party. "There?s a pattern to damaging state institutions," he claimed, explaining that Justice Ahsan was criticised in the media for inquiring into the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case implementation. "There?s a process, first a newspaper report is published and then TV shows discuss the issue in the evening," he remarked. He termed Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal as the leader of the movement against the army and judiciary, saying Iqbal "used the same news report to malign the judge". Chaudhry appealed to the Chief Justice of Pakistan to safeguard his colleague?s honour and take notice of this "malicious campaign". "Ahsan Iqbal should be summoned to court and made answerable," he said, adding that contempt proceedings should be initiated against him. "Maryam [Nawaz] said people were picked up before the NA-120 by-election. That was a lie aimed to malign the army," said Chaudhry, adding that Iqbal also played politics over this matter. Imran no longer popular, lost Lahore by-elections: Ayesha Gulalai Gulalai was speaking to media in Islamabad In response to a question, he hit out at disgruntled PTI MNA Ayesha Gulalai, saying she announced in a press conference that she is leaving the party but now claims otherwise. Replying to a question regarding PTI Chairman Imran Khan's summons by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), he said Imran respects the ECP and if required will appear before it too. "Our concern is whether the ECP is a court or an administrative body," he said, adding that the matter is fixed before a larger bench of the Islamabad High Court on Wednesday (tomorrow) and if it decides so then Imran will appear before the ECP.
