Requests SC to provide justice to PTI detained workers, leaders
Demands immediate recovery of forcibly disappeared Sadaqat Abbasi, Zahoor Mashwani, Hassaan Niazi, Imran Riaz
ISLAMABAD: /DNA/ – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Core Committee expressed great resentment over the dilly-dallying tactics in the bail issue of the PTI Chairman Imran Khan to deprive him of right to fair trial on various technical grounds so as to perpetuate his detention in Attock jail.
PTI Core Committee, in its crucial meeting, held on Monday said that after the special judge’s week-long leave, the refusal of the duty judge to hear the bail application of PTI Chairman was a matter of great concern.
They stated that Imran Khan’s cases were the worst examples of discriminatory justice, as first he was awarded punishment in the false case of Toshakhana in an extraordinary haste by flouting the law and justice and now efforts were being made to deprive him of justice by making various tricks to delay hearing of the cipher case.
PT Core Committee said that the case of PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi was also put on hold under the guise of the departure of the special judge.
He said that the process of depriving the PTI leaders from justice and keeping them in prison on technical grounds should be stopped immediately.
PTI Core Committee also reviewed the Lahore High Court’s hearing on the arrest of PTI President Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi despite the court order.
They expressed satisfaction over the court’s issuance of contempt of court notice to the IG Islamabad and the order for the recovery of Chaudhry Parvez Elahi through a judicial officer.
The PTI Core Committee requested the Supreme Court (SC) to protect the rights of Parvaiz Elahi and take strict action against the officers who committed serious violation of the law.
The committee also requested the top court to provide justice to thousands of innocent workers including senior leaders and women languishing in jails in false and fabricated cases.
In the meeting, they reviewed the situation in Gilgit-Baltistan and expressed concerned over the government’s incompetence and inaction to bring normalcy to the region.
They appealed to the local people and various parties to avoid tension and maintain peace in the area.
The participants of the meeting urged the government and state machinery to better understand the sensitivity and delicacy of the issue and hammer out a well-thought-out and effective workable solution to the dispute without any further delay.
The PTI Core Committee also demanded the immediate recovery and release of the forcibly disappeared president of PTI North Punjab Sadaqat Abbasi.
They emphasized on the immediate recovery and release of other missing persons including Zahoor Mashwani, Barrister Hassaan Niazi and Imran Riaz Khan.
