IHC Accepts PTI’s Plea to Submit More Documents in Foreign Funding Case

Islamabad: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday accepted miscellaneous plea filed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to submit more documents in the foreign funding case.

According to details, IHC Justice Mohsin Akhtar conducted a hearing of the PTI foreign funding case and accepted the party’s plea to submit more documents.

The court directed to make the details of pending PTI foreign funding case in Election Commission a part of the judicial record as well as a notification of Saqlain Haider Awan’s appointment as a law officer directed to be part of judicial record.

In addition, PTI has also been granted permission to submit the details of the petition filed in the same court in 2017.

In November 2014, the foreign funding case was first filed by the PTI’s former central vice president Akbar S Babar, who had alleged corruption and other illegalities in the party’s funding.

Since the start of the case, the PTI has repeatedly challenged the ECP’s jurisdiction to scrutinise the party accounts and challenged the PTI membership of the petitioner Akbar S Babar.

The ECP and subsequently the IHC passed more than one judgments validating the ECP jurisdiction and the PTI membership of the petitioner.
