ECP issues bailable arrest warrants of Imran Khan in contempt of court case

Issuing directives for submission of Rs100,000 surety bond to PTI chief until September 25, the ECP has also ordered him to turn up before it in person by the same date.

A lawyer for Imran Khan, a leading opposition figure in Pakistan, says the country's election commission has issued a warrant for his arrest on charges of contempt.

The returning officer from ECP directed Punjab chief secretary and inspector general (IG) to not approve any rally by any political party in the constituency.

The counsel for Imran Khan, Babar Awan, argued that the PTI chief was overseas and had returned to the country just an hour ago.

However, the petitioner's lawyer said that the ECP had ordered Khan to appear before it but he kept ignoring the directions. "Had he [Imran Khan] respected the institutions, he would have been present here", said the counsel, asking the commission to continue with the regular proceeding.

"Our case is being heard by Islamabad High Court", he said while addressing a joint press conference along with Pakistan Awami League chief Dr Tahirul Qadri.

Iranians among 7 dead in twin attacks in south Iraq
Isis often claims responsibility for large-scale attacks targeting security forces and Shiite civilians in Iraq. Mr Al-Nassiri said the majority of the dead are expected to be Iranian pilgrims who were inside the restaurant.

In the past month, ECP had issued a second show-cause notice to Khan after he failed to reply to the earlier notice regarding the contempt of court proceedings against him, PTI reported.

Khan had accused the ECP of being biased in the foreign funding case following which his counsel had tendered an apology with the commission.

Joining in the conversation, Babar Awan said that Imran Khan is not facing any case relating money laundering and corruption which could disqualify him from contenting elections.
