PM Imran's disqualification: SC to hear review petition on Oct 18

Islamabad (Staff Report): The Supreme Court will hear a review petition, seeking disqualification of Prime Minister Imran Khan on October 18.


A three-member bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar will hear a review petition filed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Hanif Abbasi.

The Supreme Court mentioned in its judgment that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief was not liable to declare his offshore company, Niazi Services Ltd, in his 2013 nomination papers as he was not a shareholder nor a director of the said company.

The court also said that Imran provided sufficient money trail vindicating his claims of Bani Gala property's purchase price.

Abbasi, who is serving a life sentence in the ephedrine quota case had filed the petition in November last year.
