Imran Khan submitted a reply in the Supreme Court in the contempt of court case. In response, it has been requested that the court should end the proceedings of the contempt of court case.
In response to the contempt of court case for violation of court orders in Long March, it has been stated that the reports collected by the law enforcement agencies do not prove that the court orders were deliberately violated.
In the 16-page reply, the former prime minister has also said that the reports of the law enforcement agencies do not even prove that there is contempt of court action against Imran Khan.
He has said that the reports are mostly based on assumptions. These reports do not provide a basis for sustaining contempt of court proceedings. Imran Khan has also included newspaper clippings in his reply.
They say that the reports prepared by the government against me are one-sided. On May 24 and 25, the houses of Tehreek-e-Insaaf workers were raided. False reports were prepared to cover up the violence done to Tehreek-e-Insaf workers.
He has said that he has never campaigned against the judiciary or other national institutions. He said the same thing about the order of the Supreme Court in his speech. He called women and children to reach D Chowk. I was told that the court had ordered the removal of obstacles from the Long March route.
He says that he can never think of insulting the court. He did not deliberately violate the order of the Supreme Court. I assure you that I was not informed about the court order on the evening of 25th May.
He has said that the Supreme Court in its order also asked Babar Awan to meet me. Despite the court order, the administration did not provide any facility for Babar Awan to meet me. On May 25 at 6:45, the workers were given permission. The video message was released on the information of political workers.
They say that during the protest, it was impossible to contact by phone because of the jammers. It is regrettable for the step taken unknowingly. The call to go to D Chowk on May 25 was for a peaceful protest against the government’s attitude.
No lawyer has been asked by me or Tehreek-e-Insaf to join the case pending in the Supreme Court. I am now told that Asad Umar has given instructions regarding the G-nine Gurvand.
Advocate Babar Awan and Faisal Chaudhry also requested to withdraw their names from the contempt proceedings.
