Imran Khan Appears Before IHC In Contempt Case

The hearing against Pakistan Tehreeek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on the charge of contempt of court for threatening Additional Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry during a public rally has been resumed by a larger bench of the Islamabad High Court (IHC), which consists of five judges. Khan is accused of making the threat while speaking at a public rally.

The entry of ministers and members of parliament from the provinces of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, who had assembled outside the court to demonstrate their unity and support for the chairman of the PTI, was barred.


In addition, on the occasion of Imran Khan’s presence in court, a significant number of police officers have been assigned to their respective posts. While the Chairman of the PTI said, shortly after arriving at the courthouse, that he would speak to the media when the hearing had concluded.


On Thursday morning, the chairmen of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) filed a miscellaneous application with the Islamabad High Court (IHC), requesting permission to submit written arguments in the contempt of court case against former Prime Minister Imran Khan. This request was made hours before the hearing was scheduled to resume before a larger bench of five judges at the Islamabad High Court (IHC).


In his most recent appeal, Imran Khan contended that the high court does not have the authority under the Constitution to exercise suo moto jurisdiction. It is important that the arguments about the admissibility of the contempt case be retained in the record.


According to what was mentioned in the plea, “the written arguments will also be clarified over the course of the proceedings.”


In the last hearing on August 31, the IHC provided the Chairman of the PTI with a second opportunity to file a response that was “well considered” in the contempt proceedings that were launched against him as a result of his contentious comments against Judge Zeba Chaudhry.


On Wednesday, the Chairman of the PTI, Imran Khan, filed a supplemental reply in the contempt of court case that is being brought against him.


In his response, the former prime minister expressed his profound sorrow for his inadvertent statements and said that he could not even conceive of making any statements that were critical of the judicial system.


In addition, he said that his statements were not intended to cause Judge Zeba Chaudhry any emotional distress in any way. “The remarks were never intended to interfere with or in any way affect the process of administration of justice,” he added. “The utterances were never meant to influence the course of administration of justice.”


The former Prime Minister of Pakistan went on to say that he had a great deal of respect for the lower courts and that he was in favour of women’s rights in Pakistan.


Imran Khan said that he was “not aware” that the subject was sub-judice when he made the statement, and he added that he was touched by the images of Shahbaz Gill gasping for air. Imran Khan claimed that he was “not aware” that the matter was sub-judice when he made the comment.


On the other hand, he pleaded with the judge to release him from the proceedings in accordance with the Islamic principles of forgiveness and restraint.
