Maryam questions courts' impartiality as Imran gets bail in four cases

An anti-terrorism court on Tuesday approved bail of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan in four cases including attack on building of Pakistan Television and parliament.

Police had booked Imran Khan and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Dr Tahirul Qadri along with their supporters in a number of cases during the 2014 sit-in calling for the resignation of the then prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

Justice Faisal Arab told that it is possible all legal means were used to transfer the money, but the PTI leader may have not revealed his asset overseas in the nomination papers filed during 2013 General Elections.

Responding over a comment issued by the chief justice during the hearing of the disqualification case in which he said the court is in no hurry to give its decision, Maryam sarcastically remarked: "Yes indeed there is no hurry".

The chief justice made it clear that judgment on the case should not be expected anytime soon.

Earlier, it was observed by CJP that PTI Chairperson Imran Khan declared his London flat but not the offshore company.

Naeem Bukhari also pointed out that there were so many contradictions in responses given by Imran Khan.

Akram Sheikh, the lawyer representing Abbasi, claimed that the the PTI chief had changed his stance 18 times.

He also raised question on Imran Khan's filed assets and asked his counsel Naeem Bukhari whether hiding assets in the nomination paper was an act of deliberate lying or a mistake.
