ECP reserves verdict in contempt of court case against Imran Khan

Foreign funding case Hanif provides PTI chief’s tax documents to SC

While Khan's party, Pakistan Tehreek-e Insaf (PTI), rejected Ayesha Gulalai Wazir's accusations outright and even demanded compensation for the damage caused to Khan's reputation, the female leader was also threatened with lashings and acid attacks on social media.

The election body will review the reply on September 27 and will give its judgment after that, said in its short order.

The ECP, after receiving the response by Imran's lawyer Babar Awan, postponed the hearing till September 27, while deciding to announce the verdict on the same day.

The DAWN cited the petition as claiming that Khan had used derogatory language in a reply to the commission in another case regarding party funding which was tantamount to contempt of court.

In his supplementary concise statement submitted to the top court, Imran said he had never changed his position relating with his position on Bani Gala residence.

The ECP had to proceed against Imran as the PTI chairman in a TV interview had reportedly said that his counsel tendered an apology in his personal capacity, and that Khan himself had not apologised.

Meanwhile, the PTI chief submitted his response to the ECP, contending that he didn't commit contempt of court.

Khan has, however, said that he had not committed any wrongdoing or financial crime.

A four member bench of the Commission headed by Chief Election Commissioner Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan heard the case in Islamabad on Monday.
