PTI Decides To Open Another Legal Front Against Nawaz

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) recently made the decision to open up another legal front against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. The new case will demand the implementation of a 2012 verdict of the Supreme Court regarding the Asghar Khan case.

It has been reported that PTI will tentatively file the petition within a week via counsel Fawad Chaudhry.

The petition will make PM Nawaz respondent of the case and will bring into light the aforementioned verdict. The verdict declared that prior to the 1990 General Elections, PM Nawaz had received money from an intelligence agency. The funds at the time were allegedly used to form an alliance against the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).

“Through the petition, the Supreme Court will be requested to initiate contempt of court proceedings against the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) for not implementing the apex court’s 2012 orders in the Asghar Khan case,” said Chaudhry (a PTI spokesperson).

The decision was taken during a meeting chaired by PTI Chief Imran Khan at his Bani Gala residence. The discourse of the meeting also included developments over the Panamagate case, Dawn Leaks issue, Asghar Khan case implementation and PTI’s mass contact drive and its future political strategy.
