IHC starts hearing of Khawaja Asif’s Iqama Case today

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court will today (Monday) start hearing a petition seeking Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif’s disqualification for possessing an iqama (work permit).

A larger bench of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) headed by Justice Amir Farooq has sought a written response from the foreign minister.

The petition for Asif’s disqualification was filed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Usman Dar.

The petitioner was a PTI candidate in the 2013 general election in NA-110 – the Sialkot constituency in Punjab province from where Asif was elected to the National Assembly.
