Pakistan court suspends police operation against Imran Khan until tomorrow

The appeal of the Pakistani Justice Movement Party (PTI) Vice President Chaudri Favad Hussein was evaluated by the Lahore High Court.

The court decided that the operation launched by the police to arrest Han should be stopped until 10:00 tomorrow.

Couldn’t be detained

As a result of the operation launched by the police yesterday to detain Khan, clashes broke out between PTI supporters and members of the police.

Police and paramilitary units were unable to detain Imran Khan.

In the incidents, 54 police officers were injured and 15 demonstrators were detained.

Hearings of two cases were held

Hearings were held in Islamabad District Court on March 13 in two cases in which Khan was tried for allegedly selling gifts from foreign statesmen during his term as prime minister and threatening a female judge in August 2022.

Separate arrest warrants were issued for Han, who did not attend both hearings.

Lahore Police Chief Bilal Kumyana told reporters that the police were tasked with detaining Khan in line with the court’s decision.

Regarding the case in which gifts from foreign statesmen were sold during Khan’s prime ministry, the court ordered the police to bring Khan to the hearing on March 29.

Han had applied to the court against the arrest warrant for threatening a female judge. The court suspended Khan’s arrest warrant until March 16.

The court in Kuetta city of Balochistan province also issued an arrest warrant for Khan on March 9, for his statements against state institutions and officials and for trying to disrupt public order. As a result of Han’s objection, the decision was suspended for 2 weeks by the upper court.

The government of Imran Khan fell in April 2022.
