Fawad Chaudhry Is To Be Presented In Court Per LHC’s Order


On Wednesday, the Lahore High Court (LHC) ordered the police to have PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry appear in court today.

On Wednesday morning, Islamabad police detained the former federal minister outside his home on charges of “inciting violence against a constitutional institution.”

Fawad’s attorney, Barrister Ahmad Pansota, had petitioned the LHC for his “recovery” after the PTI leader had been taken into custody.

The petitioner asked the court to bring Fawad back from his “illegal and unlawful imprisonment.”

After hearing the petition, Justice Tariq Saleem Sheikh instructed the appropriate authorities to bring the PTI leader before the court.

While this was going on, a Lahore court issued an order allowing the police to transfer PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry to the capital city of Islamabad.

Islamabad Police brought the PTI leader to court under heavy guard to request temporary detention so that he could be transferred to the nation’s capital.

Fawad Chaudhry’s attorneys raised concerns about the decision to first shackle the ex-minister at the start of the hearing. In court, Chaudhry’s attorney argued that the police should explain the basis for his client’s arrest.

A Lahore court has authorised the medical examination and transfer to Islamabad of the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

In his first statement to the police at the cantonment katchery, Chaudhry claimed he had no idea on what charges he had been detained in Islamabad.
