Contempt of court says Pak SC over Imran Khan’s arrest

Pakistan’s Supreme Court has instructed the anti-corruption watchdog to produce former Prime Minister Imran Khan within one hour. The court deemed the agency’s actions as “contempt of court” for arresting Khan without permission from the court’s registrar on the court premises.

The directive was given by a three-member bench that heard Khan’s plea against his arrest in the Al-Qadir Trust case. The bench expressed its displeasure at the manner in which Khan, who had come from Lahore for a case, was arrested at the Islamabad High Court premises.

“What dignity remains of the court if 90 people entered its premises? How can any individual be arrested from court premises?” the chief justice was quoted as saying by the Dawn newspaper.
