The Pakistan Supreme Court has reserved the judgment in Imran Khan’s disqualification case. The case against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief was being heard by a three-member bench chaired by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar.
The Chief Justice, while hearing the case, said, “How will the mistakes committed in past impact the upcoming future?”
He also raised question on Imran Khan’s filed assets and asked his counsel Naeem Bukhari whether hiding assets in the nomination paper was an act of deliberate lying or a mistake. Earlier, the court observed that the PTI chief had submitted records of his flat in London but not the offshore company.
However, replying to the Chief Justice’s observation, Bukhari informed the bench that Imran Khan had declared the London flat in 2000 via an amnesty scheme. He also stated that Khan’s failure to furnish his income statement was a mistake and pointed out contradictions in responses given by Imran Khan.
