Election Commission of Pakistan issues arrest warrant against Imran Khan

The electoral body on Thursday issued non-bailable arrest warrants for October 26 against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran in a contempt case.
PTI leader Babar Awan declared the ECP decision unconstitutional and said the party will file a petition in Islamabad High Court (IHC) against the verdict.
They said that the decision to arrest Imran Khan is based on discrimination, adding that the ECP is not a competent authority to issue such warrant and due to its biased attitude it can not hold fair elections either.
In a written response that accompanied the documents, Imran said that he had mentioned the transfer of the money from his account to Jemima's in financial documents submitted before the Election Commission of Pakistan in 2003.
Former PTI leader Akbar S. Babar had filed the petition in January this year, regarding the party's alleged receipt of illegal foreign-funding. Earlier, a bailable arrest warrant was issued by the ECP on September 14, after Khan failed to appear for the hearing on the case. According to PTI spokesperson Naeemul Haq, the party is also set to challenge the warrants in the IHC.
Talking to media men outside the Supreme Court on Wednesday, he said Imran Khan was running away from judicial proceedings and was not appearing before the courts.
Though the ECP claimed on August 10 that it has the legal right to hear the contempt case against Imran Khan, the PTI chief had earlier challenged the commission's jurisdiction to initiate hearing.
