ISLAMABAD (APP) - Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb on Tuesday called for bringing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan to justice for his crimes, including massive corruption.

“Till date, Imran Khan has not appeared before courts in any case whether it is related to Malam Jabba, Billion Tree Tsunami, BRT Peshawar, Toshakhana, foreign funding or Tyrian White’s parental issue,” the minister said, while talking to the media.

Imran Khan, she said, had been avoiding the courts as he had nothing in defence to escape from punishment for the crimes. "Courts should understand the difference between a leader and 'geedar' (jackal). Courts should not give the date after date in the case. No accused will appear in court if such attitude was adopted," she maintained.

She said that Imran Khan was a 'foreign agent', who had 'indulged in laundering money through his cronies and using charity in his politics'.

By evading court appearances, Imran Khan, in fact, had made fun of the law and the constitution, the minister said, adding he was the first accused who despite being summoned repeatedly, was not appearing before the courts. It would be better that Imran Khan should be arrested and produced in the courts.
