PM Imran Khan disqualification review petition, new development in SC
*ISLAMABAD - Supreme Court to take up the review petition in disqualification plea against Imran Khan.*
*As per the media report, the Supreme Court will hear PML-N leader Hanif Abbasi’s petition to review the disqualification case verdict exonerating Prime Minister Imran Khan on October 10.*
A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar will hear the petition. Justice Umar Ata Bandial and Justice Faisal Arab are the other members of the bench.
Abbasi’s lawyer has also been issued a notice for hearing.
In December 2017, the court had disqualified PTI’s Jahangir Khan Tareen for being “dishonest” but rejected Abbasi’s the petition seeking Imran Khan’s disqualification and exonerated him from all corruption charges.
