PTI chairman Imran Khan visits the court of Judge Zeba Chaudhary to seek apology

ISLAMABAD: PTI Chairman Imran Khan today visited the court of Judge Zeba Chaudhry to seek apology from her in connection with the contempt of court proceedings in Islamabad High Court.

As the female Judge Zeba Chaudhry was not in the court at that time, Imran Khan asked her reader to inform the Judge that he (Khan) visited the court to seek apology over his threatening remarks against Zeba Chaudhry.

Imran Khan left the court of Zeba Chaudhary after seeing her reader. Now it appears that the PTI chairman Imran Khan has fulfilled his promise of seeking apology from Judge Zeba Chaudhry according to his statement in the Islamabad High Court.

A few days ago, the Islamabad High Court deferred contempt proceedings against PTI chief Imran Khan after he expressed his willingness to seek apology from Additional District and Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhry.

The IHC had initiated contempt proceedings against Imran over his diatribe against Judge Chaudhry, who had approved PTI leader Shahbaz Gill’s physical remand in a sedition case, at a public rally in Islamabad’s F-9 Park on Aug 20.

At the previous hearing, the IHC had termed the PTI chief’s revised response in the case as “unsatisfactory” and decided to indict him on September 22 (today).

A larger bench, headed by IHC CJ Athar Minallah and comprising Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani, Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb, Justice Tariq Mehmood Jahangiri and Justice Babar Sattar, heard the case today.

In its written order, the court observed that in his statement today, Imran said that he “may have crossed a red line”.

“He wanted to assure the Hon’ble Judges of this Court that he was willing to clarify before the Hon’ble Judge of the District Court that neither he nor his party sought any action against the Hon’ble Judge of District Court and that he would willingly apologize to the Hon’ble Judge if she felt that the respondent had crossed a line.”

The order went on that the PTI chief has promised never to do anything in the future that would hurt the dignity of the judiciary and especially the lower judiciary.

In view of Imran’s response, the court said that it was “satisfied with the apology rendered by the respondent”.
