Supreme Court Is Set To Hear Imran Khan’s Contempt Case On November 7

  • The Supreme Court will resume hearing the contempt of court case against Imran Khan on November 7.
  • Khan filed a motion to stay the contempt proceedings against him while he recovers from his gunshot wounds.
  • The Supreme Court’s five-member larger bench will resume hearing Khan’s contempt case at 11:30 a.m.

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) set the contempt of court case against PTI Chairman Imran Khan for November 7 on Saturday.

Khan’s attorney asked the Supreme Court earlier today to postpone the contempt of court proceedings against him while he heals from bullet wounds sustained in an assassination attempt in Wazirabad.

The Supreme Court’s five-judge larger bench will continue hearing the contempt case against Khan on Monday at 11:30 a.m.

The Supreme Court today requested a full response from Imran Khan in the contempt case (November 5).

I’m Not Aware Of Any Declaration Or Commitment.

On October 31, the PTI chairman answered to the Supreme Court, stating that he was not aware of any statement or undertaking made by the party leadership on his behalf about the May 25 march.

The PTI chairman and his attorneys were ordered to respond to the Supreme Court’s request by October 31 detailing the infractions committed by the party during the May 25 march, which prevented it from marching near the Peshawar Morr between the H-9 and G-9 areas of Islamabad.

In his written response, the former prime minister said that he didn’t know about any statement or promise made before this court on behalf of the “senior leadership of the PTI” or on his behalf on May 25, 2022, or about the details, such as the D Chowk area, of the order passed by this court around 6 p.m. on May 25, 2022.

It is worth noting that the Supreme Court postponed the hearing to November 5 (today) in order to request a full response from Khan in this regard.

However, the PTI chairman was unable to appear in court today due to his injuries. As a result, his lawyers submitted a plea seeking a postponement of the hearing.

The Case

The federal government charged Imran Khan, the PTI’s leader, with contempt of court on October 13 for his demand for a long march to Islamabad.

The federal government filed a complaint with the Supreme Court, claiming that the PTI leader was violating a court order by making public declarations about marching on Islamabad.

According to the petition, Imran Khan is making statements that will harm Islamabad. It appealed the Supreme Court to direct the PTI leader to ensure that its protest and sit-in directives are followed.

The interior ministry, which is part of the federal government, put in the request.
