Khan’s failure to save himself from any of these four legal proceedings would mean his disqualification from politics
Islamabad: PTI Chairman Imran Khan faces four lawsuits, all of which pose serious threats to his political career.
If Khan does not escape any of the four lawsuits, At a time when his popularity was believed to be at the height of his popularity, these legal threats to his political career included two insult lawsuits, one in the Toshakhana case.
Includes references to Speaker NA and false statements in PTI foreign funding cases.
IHC Contempt Case: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) issued a notice of cause to Imran Khan on Tuesday and issued a subpoena for contempt of court on 31 August. IHC was notified of his suo moto and launched an insult lawsuit against Imran Khan.
At a solidarity rally with his close adviser, Shahbaz Gill, in the capital last week, Khan cautioned in nominating judges for additional sessions over granting pretrial detention in Islamabad. Gil at the request of the police in preparation for the outcome. He said he would take action against her.
According to legal experts, this is a serious insult facing Imran Khan. Khan’s threats to the Islamabad Metropolitan Additional Conference judges are seen not as the usual disregard for a single judge, but as an attempt to sabotage justice and to the judiciary as a whole. Conviction in this case includes a five-year disqualification conviction.
ECP Insult Case: The Pakistan Electoral Commission (ECP) last week accused PTI leaders Imran Khan, Fawad Chaudhry and Asad Umar of the Electoral Commission and Electoral Commission (CEC) Sikandar Sultan. Issued an insult letter against the allegations against Rajah.
The Electoral Commission ordered opposition leaders to attend in person or submit statements through their lawyers on 31 August. An ECP insult order was issued to his PTI chief, Imran Khan, for making “offensive and unparliamentary remarks” against electoral authorities in various speeches.
The Commission said it issued the notice after reviewing his PTI leader’s speech provided by Pakistan’s electronic media regulator (Pemra) at the request of the electoral authority. The ECP asked PTI executives to clarify the allegations against them. If the ECP convicts you of contempt, you will also be barred from holding public office for five years.
Toshakhana Reference: The Toshakhana reference sent by NA spokesman to ECP v. Imran Khan is the most serious legal threat to PTI as it alleges concealment of assets in Khan’s statement to the Commission.
SC dismissed Nawaz, his former prime minister Sharif, for failing to disclose “unresolved claims” in nomination papers and disqualified him for life. In the case of Imran Khan, he allegedly failed to disclose earnings from Toshahana’s donation in his annual asset statement filed with the ECP.
A similarity between the Nawaz and Imran cases is that both leaders submitted a statement on assets to the ECP. In the case of Nawaz Sharif, he did not explain what he did not receive, but in the case of Imran Khan, he did not explain what he received from the proceeds of Toshakana’s gifts. I just explained them in the statement.
Nawaz Sharif, in the nomination papers for the 2013 elections, saw his party win and set to enter his third term as Pakistan’s prime minister. Imran Khan made this declaration during his tenure as prime minister and as part of the mandatory legal obligation for all members of parliament to make an annual declaration of assets and liabilities.
Non-Declaration in PTI Foreign Funding Case: Following recent ECP decisions in PTI foreign funding cases, Imran Khan was penalized for proving PTI funding and for proving materially false facts about its nature. Legal issues have also been raised as to whether the of that fund.
But what is really serious is the undeclaration of his two bank accounts that Imran Khan opened with his own signature, and in the case of foreign funding, he had not yet indicated to the ECP. The case would invoke Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution, which provides for life disqualification if Imran Khan is unable to defend himself.
In all the above cases, if convicted, Imran Khan will be given the opportunity to appeal to the Supreme Court.
