Pakistani court summons PTI Chief for contempt.
Imran Khan was alleged of being accused of scandalizing the judiciary and spreading hatred against judges during a news conference on 26 July regarding the issue of changing the dates of presidential election by the court.
Imran Khan has been accusing the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and the apex court to be involved in the rigging during the May 11 general elections and criticized on the decision of judiciary to change the dates of presidential election.
Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) boycotted the presidential elections on the grounds that Supreme Court had revised the schedule for the presidential elections and the independence of the ECP was compromised. The Chief Election Commissioner, Fakhruddin G. Ibrahim also resigned over the issue as many political parties scandalized him.
The notice was taken on a note written by the Supreme Court Registrar under article 204 read with section 3 of the Contempt of Court Ordinance, 2003. The apex court has also issued a notice to Attorney General Munir A Malik to appear in court on August 2. (end) sbk.mt KUNA 011427 Aug 13NNNN
