PTI to file review petition over Tareen’s ban
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has Saturday decided to file review petition in the Supreme Court against the disqualification of party leader Jahangir Tareen.
The decision was taken during a meeting of the party’s core group.
The meeting also agreed to keep the post of party’s general secretary vacant until the ruling on the review petition by the apex court.
The top court had disqualified for life PTI chairman Imran Khan’s close aide and party’s general secretary Jahangir Khan Tareen.
Tareen was held responsible for fraud and disqualified for life.
The case was launched last year at the request by Hanif Abbasi, a leader of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), against Khan and Tareen.
The three-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar, held around 50 hearings, while the case continued for more than a year.
Over 7,000 documents were presented in the court by the petitioner and the accused.
