The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) strongly condemned the treatment faced by former Prime Minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan during his detention, calling it “unlawful, unconstitutional, and inhumane.”
In a recent meeting, the PTI core committee criticized what it called “kangaroo courts,” handling what they believed to be “false and fabricated cases” against Khan. They expressed doubts about the impartiality of judges involved in the cases, citing specific instances of alleged bias, including Judge Humayun Dilawar and Islamabad High Court (IHC) Chief Justice Amir Farooq in the Toshakhana Case.
The committee also raised concerns about Judge Abul Hasnat Zulqarnain, presiding over the cipher case, accusing him of being “highly prejudiced and inimical to justice and fairness.”
They called for the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) to promptly address judicial interference by “compromised judges” and expedite the hearing of pending petitions against Justice Aamir Farooq to ensure Imran Khan’s right to a fair trial with impartial judges.
The committee also emphasized the importance of upholding the Constitution’s paramount status and the rule of law for the nation’s survival and development.
