Non-bailable arrest warrants issued for Imran Khan in contempt case

PTI Chief running away from judicial proceedings, not appearing before courts: Daniyal

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Thursday issued a non-bailable arrest warrant (NBW) against Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan after he failed to appear before it in a contempt of court case.

During a previous hearing, the larger bench had suspended ECP's bailable warrants of arrest against the PTI chairman in the contempt case, while his counsel, Babar Awan, was directed to submit a reply to ECP's show-cause notice, duly signed by Imran by September 25.

The case begun on Abbasi's petition seeking disqualification of Imran Khan and Jehangir Tareen over the non-disclosure of assets, existence of offshore companies, as well as PTI being a foreign-aided party. Talking to the media persons here outside the Supreme Court on Tuesday, he said the PTI chairman is habitual of hiding behind the stay orders.

On September 14, the ECP had issued bailable warrants against Imran to ensure his presence in the case, besides directing him to submit a surety bond of Rs100,000 until September 25.

However, Khan in a TV interview later said that his counsel had tendered an apology in his personal capacity and that he had not apologised.

"A new warrant is issued in the same case where a (bailable) warrant was already suspended".

The ECP had issued the contempt notice to Khan on January 24 over his "scandalous remarks" about the commission. "We will also look into whether this is contempt of the IHC's full bench or not, and then (the party) we will challenge it", said PTI member and Khan's chief counsel Babar Awan.

On Oct 11, the high court observed that it would hear the case only after the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) gives its decision.

Several times since then, Imran has accused the ECP, among other government bodies, of being compromised and working for the benefit of Nawaz Sharif, the former prime minister and head of the ruling party, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.
