The High Court of Islamabad has issued an order preventing the arrest of Imran Khan in any cases registered in Pakistan until May 15th.
According to Dawn, the Islamabad High Court issued an order prohibiting authorities from arresting Imran Khan in any cases registered against him across Pakistan until May 15. Earlier on the same day, he was granted bail for a period of two weeks in the Al-Qadir Trust case.
This news came after Pakistan’s Supreme Court declared his incarceration invalid, stating that no one can be arrested from inside the court. Additionally, Imran Khan’s political party, the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, urged his supporters to gather near the Islamabad High Court. The cricketer-turned-politician is expected to address them after the hearing.
According to Dawn, on Friday, Shehbaz Sharif made a speech in which he criticized the leadership of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, accusing them of pushing the country towards destruction. He highlighted the challenges faced by the country’s currency and acknowledged the difficult situation inherited by the current government.
He also mentioned the previous government’s violation of an agreement with the IMF, and emphasized the need to repair it. Furthermore, Sharif expressed his concerns over the court’s silence during what he called “political victimization” of his party, the PML-N, and its leaders during the tenure of the PTI.
