Ex-PM Imran Khan to Appear Before Lahore ATC through Video Link, Lawyer Confirms

Video Link

PTI founder Imran Khan’s legal counsel, Salman Safdar, announced on Wednesday that the former prime minister would participate in anti-terrorism court (ATC) proceedings in Lahore through video link for cases related to terrorism. Speaking outside Adiala jail, where Imran Khan is currently incarcerated, Safdar stated that in the upcoming days, Khan would attend Lahore ATC virtually, with Safdar providing assistance from Lahore.

Safdar emphasized that the Lahore High Court’s divisional bench had reinstated Khan’s interim bails in seven cases linked to the May 9 riots. He clarified that Khan faced arrest only in the Toshakhana and Al-Qadir Trust case, maintaining bail in all other cases.

In a related development, an Islamabad High Court two-member bench reserved its decision on an appeal challenging Khan’s jail trial in the £190 million case and Toshakhana case. Imran Khan was arrested on August 5, 2023, in the Toshakhana case shortly after receiving a sentence from an accountability court in Islamabad.

Since then, he has not been physically brought to any court hearings, and all proceedings have taken place within the confines of the jail.

The legal developments underscore the complexity of Imran Khan’s legal situation, involving various cases and legal proceedings, as the former prime minister navigates through legal challenges while being confined to Adiala jail. The use of video link technology allows for remote participation in court hearings, contributing to the unique circumstances of this legal process.
