Supreme Court dismisses contempt of court plea against Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court of Pakistan has dismissed the contempt of court plea against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan.

Supreme Court, while hearing a petition filed by the Attorney General of Pakistan, remarked that government should do its job as per law.

Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial remarked that the court is not here to level allegations against someone but instead the court’s job is to protect the constitution.

CJP Bandial remarked that the court doesn’t want to continue hearing on the case.

“We will issue the verdict in the case which will serve as an example in the future,” CJP remarked.

At the outset of the hearing, Attorney-General of Pakistan Ashtar Ausaf read out the SC verdict before the court.

Earlier, the government filed a petition in the apex court for registering contempt of court case against Imran Khan.

It has pleaded in the petition that despite the court’s orders, Imran Khan directed his party workers to reach D-Chowk in Islamabad.
