ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan will resume hearing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan’s disqualification case from Septemeber 12.
The last hearing for the case initiated in light of PML-N leader Hanif Abbasi’s petition before the apex court seeking Imran Khan’s disqualification was held in August.
The case was adjourned until Septemeber with no specific date given for the next hearing as Abbasi’s counsel Akram Sheikh sought leave to go for pilgrimage.
Additionally, Justice Faisal Arab, too, went on leave and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Justice Saqib Nisar had to travel to Quetta.
Before the case was adjourned in August, the bench had also summoned, for the second time, a copy of Imran Khan’s passport for verification of the ‘non-resident’ status.
Meanwhile, Abbasi’s counsel Akram Sheikh had argued that it was necessary to prove the source of funds arguing over the money trail of Imran Khan’s properties.
The hearing will resume under the same three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar, Justice Faisal Arab and Justice Umar Ata Bindial. –Web Desk
