Imran Khan Granted Bail by IHC in £190m Reference Case

Imran Khan

On Wednesday, the Islamabad High Court granted bail to Imran Khan, the founder of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), in connection with the £190 million National Crime Agency (NCA) settlement reference.

This decision comes amidst heightened scrutiny and legal proceedings surrounding the high-profile case. Khan’s bail petition, which was submitted to the court, sought relief from the legal implications arising from the NCA settlement reference.

The approval of Khan’s bail plea marks a significant development in the ongoing legal saga, offering temporary respite from the mounting legal pressures on the PTI leader.

In a concise directive issued today, the Islamabad High Court instructed authorities to release the PTI founder upon submission of a Rs1 million surety bond.

An accountability court in Pakistan indicted former prime minister Imran Khan and his wife, Bushra Bibi, in the £190 million Al Qadir corruption case.

The Islamabad High Court reserved its verdict on Tuesday regarding PTI founder Imran Khan’s bail petition in the £190 million National Crime Agency settlement reference.

A two-member bench, comprising IHC Chief Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Tariq Mehmood Jahangiri, reserved the verdict after the completion of arguments.

The proceedings took place at Rawalpindi’s Adiala jail, where Khan is currently detained in connection with multiple cases. Judge Nasir Javed Rana presided over the hearing, during which the chargesheet was read out to Khan and Bushra in the courtroom.

Imran Khan, speaking to journalists in Adiala jail, stated that the NCA had seized the amount due to “suspicious transactions” rather than “money laundering.” During the PTI government, the NCA seized assets worth £190 million from a property tycoon, intending to return them to Pakistan.

The PTI government approved the settlement with the UK crime agency without disclosing details, deciding that the money would be submitted to the Supreme Court on behalf of the tycoon.
