Pakistan Election Commission issues non-bailable arrest warrant against Imran Khan

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Daniyal Aziz has claimed that Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has failed to produce evidence of his assets before the apex court.

The PTI leader had initially challenged the maintainability of the contempt petition and raised objections over the ECP's jurisdiction to initiate contempt proceedings against him.

During a previous hearing, the larger bench had suspended ECP's bailable warrants of arrest against the PTI chairman in the contempt case, while his counsel, Babar Awan, was directed to submit a reply to ECP's show-cause notice, duly signed by Imran by September 25.

Later, the ECP adjourned the hearing until Oct 26.

During last hearing on September 27, the CEC had remarked that the ECP will announce its decision on October 12 after observing the Islamabad High Court's ruling for the petition, filed by the PTI against the commission to conduct hearing of contempt case.

Calling the court proceedings against Imran as sponsored action, he said that some political quarters are engaged to distract democratic reforms' process and such cases against his client were being filed under a malicious design.

In the previous hearing, the PTI chief, in his reply submitted through his lawyer Babar Awan, stated that "I respect the ECP and believe in the supremacy of institutions".

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.

The five-member ECP, bench headed by Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Justice (retd) Sardar Raza Khan, heard the case.

In 2014, Babar moved the ECP to disqualify PTI Chairman Imran Khan for allegedly taking funds from illegal sources and irregularities in the bank accounts of the party.

Imran Khan's bailable warrants that were issued on Sept 20 by Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
