PTI chief Imran Khan

Imran Khan, the legendary cricketer and the founder of PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) has been issued a non-bailable warrant by the election commission of Pakistan.

Earlier on September 14, the bench had issued bailable arrest warrants for Khan after his repeated failure to appear in contempt of court proceedings at the commission but the Islamabad High Court later suspended the warrants after PTI's petition.

In the hearing headed by Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) retired Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza, the ECP suspended proceedings as soon as they began and the members reconvened in the chambers.

While in his previous hearing, the PTI Chief has submitted his reply through his lawyer, "I respect the ECP and believe in the supremacy of institutions".

Khan stated that he confirms the apology tendered by his previous counsel, Saqlain Haider, regarding the "contemptuous" remarks, adding that the contempt of court matter is a "closed transaction belonging to the past".

The money was later sent to Pakistan through supposedly illegal channels, which the popular politician then allegedly concealed in his annual audit reports submitted to the commission. Babar Awan, Chief Counsel of PTI told media that the EC has issued a fresh warrant in the same case in which it has already suspended another warrant last month.

During the meeting, the ECP made a decision to issue non-bailable warrants for Khan.

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.
