SC resumes disqualification case hearing against Imran today 


ISLAMABAD July 31 (TNS): The Supreme Court will resume hearing of disqualification case against PTI Chairman Imran Khan today.

Anwar Mansoor, the PTI’s counsel, will resume his arguments today after being absent from previous proceedings owing to a medical leave. He is expected to continue from PTI counsel Naeem Bukhari’s arguments presenting the money trail of Imran’s properties in London and Islamabad.

Once Mansoor’s arguments are completed, PML-N’s counsel Akram Sheikh will question his replies.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi petitioned the Supreme Court late last year to disqualify Imran and PTI leader Jahangir Tareen for ‘not declaring their assets and violating the income tax ordinance and peoples act’. The petition also terms the PTI a ‘foreign funded party’.
