PTI to hold rally in Tando Adam Khan today

PTI to hold rally in Tando Adam Khan today”

The Supreme Court will announce today (Friday) its judgment on the petitions filed by PML-N leader Hanif Abbasi, seeking the disqualification of PTI Chairman Imran Khan and Secretary-General Jehangir Tareen for non-disclosure of their assets and ownership of offshore companies overseas.

PML-N's Hanif Abbasi moved the apex court against PTI chief Imran Khan and his confidant Jahangir Khan Tareen by filing a disqualification petition against the two on November 2, 2016.

A three-member bench, headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar and comprising Justice Umer Ata Bandial and Justice Faisal Arab, will announce the much-awaited judgment at 2pm.

After the disqualification of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif due to the Panama Papers scandal, this is the most important case that political experts and pundits have been keeping a keen eye on. The leaders of both parties will be very tense as the court is going to announce the verdict, deciding the political fate of the PTI chairman and its secretary general.

"Will the captain [Imran Khan] continue to stand on the pitch or be shown the pavilion is a million dollar question which can only be answered when the judgement is announced", commented a senior counsel who observed the entire court proceedings with interest.

Abbasi requested the court to link the petition with the Panama Papers case which was rejected.

Earlier in November, Imran Khan said that he would quit politics if the Supreme Court disqualified him.

Besides, he said, there was no allegation of money laundering or corruption against Mr Khan. In this case too, Mr Tareen did not hide anything from the court and come out with clean hands, he added.

"Whether Jahangir Tareen or I, whosoever is disqualified, will not remain in the party", he said.

Bukhari, during closing arguments, had told the court that his client had submitted all documents they could obtain before the court.
