Contempt of Court Case: ECP to announce verdict on July 10
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) will announce judgment against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on July 10 in contempt of court case.
A four member bench of the ECP headed by Chief Election Commissioner Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan heard the contempt of court case against PTI Chairman Imran Khan in Islamabad.
During the proceedings, the PTI chairman again failed to submit his reply in the case and his counsel sought more time from the election commission for the purpose.
The counsel of Imran Khan said that the PTI’s new counsel Babar Awan will file Imran Khan’s reply in the case.
The chief election commissioner while expressing his annoyance said that the decision will be announced on next hearing on July 10.
Later talking to the media, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Daniyal Aziz said Imran Khan will have to submit his reply in the case.
On the occasion, member of PTI Akbar S Babar said that Imran Khan is running away from accountability but cases before the Supreme Court and the Election Commission would expose him fully.
He said that there is no difference in tax evasion and misuse of donations of people.
Babar described recent intra-party elections of PTI as a farce as less than 10% votes were cast. He said PTI has 2.7 million registered members but the party is embracing turn coats from other parties.
