  • Says arrest warrant kept in secrecy for 8 days

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The former Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has decided to file a Rs 15 billion defamation suit against the Chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lt General (retd) Nazir Ahmed Butt and served him legal notice for issuing my arrest warrant on a public holiday and keeping in secrecy for eight days.

The PTI Chairman said that he was unlawfully detained from the Islamabad High Court’s (IHC) premises with the ulterior motive to defame him and showed the world that he was arrested on corruption charges.

Imran Khan pleaded “My arrest warrant was issued on a public holiday and was kept in secrecy for eight days and I was not informed about conversion of Al-Qadir Trust Case Inquiry into Investigation.”

The PTI leader stated that the conditions stipulated in Sec 24 of NAB Ordinance were disregarded, adding that Supreme Court held that manner and execution of his arrest warrant was unlawful and unconstitutional, as Pakistan Rangers was used which subjected him to brute force to execute arrest warrant.

The PTI Chairman stated the sole purpose to arrest in such way to tarnish his image globally because he was collecting Rs 10 billion in charity annually.

“My credibility has never been questioned. Nevertheless, act of implicating me in a bogus inquiry followed by my illegal and malafide arrest, have adversely affected my reputation,” Imran Khan vowed.

The PTI Chairman stated that it had subjected him to ridicule; therefore, he was well within his right to initiate defamation proceedings.
