February 20, 2023 08:45 PM
In her fresh tirade against former prime minister Imran khan, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb has said Imran Khan is making a joke of the constitution and law by defying the court’s directives.
Talking to the media, the information minister said Imran Khan did not appear in the court despite repeated summons and on Imran Khan's call, the PTI mob attacked the court.
Facilities like Imran Khan are not available to anyone else, she said and questioned if the PTI chief abides by the FIA directives after he defied the court orders
She said the presidential office had been made into a political arena where PTI political strategies were devised.
The information minister’s remarks come after the ex-PM did not appear in the court that summoned him by 5 pm, the deadline set by the court in one of the two hearings he has to attend.
Imran has to attend two separate hearings. In the first, a two-judge LHC bench is hearing Imran’s bail plea in a case registered against him in Islamabad.
Separately, Justice Tariq Saleem Sheikh asked the former prime minister to appear in court while hearing his bail petition in a case of protests outside the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). Justice Sheikh passed these directives after Imran failed to follow the court’s order to appear in person by 2 pm today.
