In a significant legal development, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) has invalidated the decision made by a session’s court to dismiss the bail application of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman in nine cases.
A two-member bench, led by Chief Justice Aamir Farooq, has issued an order for the relevant courts to reconsider the case.
This decision by the IHC follows the earlier reservation of judgment in this matter.
It’s worth noting that the PTI chairman had submitted bail pleas in six cases to the session’s courts and three to the anti-terrorism court.
The court has directed that these bail applications be treated as pending, paving the way for further review.
The PTI chairman had initially challenged the rejection of his bail pleas in nine cases, encompassing various charges such as those related to the May 9 violence, the judicial complex attack, and forgery cases, on August 26. This legal development opens the door for a fresh review of these cases and potential reconsideration of bail.
