Canada Global (Web News) Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), was granted a one-day absence from the Toshakhana case on Wednesday by a district and sessions court in the nation’s capital.
Further Sessions While hearing the case brought by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) against the former prime minister for hiding gifts he received from the Toshakhana, Judge Humayun Dilawar approved the petition.
Faisal Chaudhry asked the judge to postpone the hearing of the case without any procedures until May 5 since lead attorney Khawaja Harris was unable to attend. In today’s hearing, he also entered a plea asking for Imran Khan’s exemption, claiming that his life was in danger due to security concerns.
The judge stated that if the PTI leader was unable to travel to Islamabad, he might still participate in the hearing through video link.
According to a lawyer for the ECP, the matter has not progressed since the electoral board published its decision in October of last year.
Judge Dilawar granted the exemption plea following the hearing of the arguments, and on May 5 he called for arguments about the admissibility of the ECP case.
