The Supreme Court on Thursday directed the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan to submit documents regarding financial details of his London flat by July 25.
A three-member bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar and comprising Justice Umar Ata Bandial and Justice Faisal Arab heard the case filed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi seeking disqualification of PTI chief Imran Khan and its Secretary General Jahangir Tareen over hiding of assets.
during the course of proceedings, Advocate Naeem Bukhari counsel for PTI informed the bench that PTI’s legal counsel in the case, Anwar Mansoor, was undergoing treatment for heart ailment in America, citing his absence as the reason for the delay in the submission of documents.
He said that Anwar Mansoor would return to the country on July 27, after his heart surgery.
The chief justice observed that the case will have to be disposed of swiftly for it was not an ordinary case. He also expressed displeasure over PTI for submitting documents in portions and directed the counsel to provide all documents together before the next hearing.
