On Tuesday, the founder of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) took a stand against the jail trials for Toshakhana and Al-Qadir Trust cases by filing petitions in the Islamabad High Court (IHC).
Submitting two petitions, the PTI founder and former prime minister contested the jail trial notifications related to Toshakhana and Al-Qadir Trust cases, with the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman and others included as parties in the proceedings.
In his petition, the PTI founder argued that a notification for the jail trial of the Al-Qadir Trust case was issued on November 14, while for the Toshakhana case, the jail trial notification was issued on November 28. He asserted that these notifications are not only unlawful but also driven by malafide intentions.
The former prime minister has sought the court’s intervention to declare the notifications null and void. Additionally, he has requested the court to suspend the trial until his appeals are resolved.
