The LHC Suspends The Arrest Warrants Of Imran Khan And Fawad Chaudhry


The bailable arrest warrants issued by the Election Commission of Pakistan against former prime minister Imran Khan, senior vice president of the PTI Fawad Chaudhry, and party secretary general Asad Umar were suspended on Monday by the Rawalpindi Bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC).

PTI leaders had their appeal against the arrest warrants heard by Justice Sadaqat Ali Khan.

The contempt proceedings against the PTI leaders were ordered to continue by the court, but the arrest warrants had been suspended.

As part of a contempt case, the ECP issued bailable arrest warrants last Thursday for PTI Chairman Imran Khan and other party officials.

The four-member bench of the ECP rejected requests for exemption from presence by former prime minister Imran Khan and PTI leaders Fawad Chaudhry and Asad Umar.

A contempt case filed against PTI Chairman Imran Khan and his party leaders Asad Umar and Fawad Chaudhry for comments they made critical of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had previously been approved for further proceedings by the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
