Contempt of court: ECP issues non-bailable arrest warrants for Imran

The documents - detailing bank transactions in connection with Khan's assets and accounts of his offshore company, Niazi Services Ltd - are not verified and have been submitted very late in the case, Abbasi argued in his petition, submitted separately with his reply in the case.

Addressing the media, PTI's Babar Awan said the ECP has issued a non-bailable warrant in a case where a bailable warrant has already been dismissed by the Islamabad High Court.

Pakistan's election commission is seeking the arrest of the country's top opposition leader, cricket-star-turned-politician Imran Khan, on contempt charges. Following the submission of the apology, the case should have been decided, he further said.

During the proceeding, Awan then said that his client had taken back the "scandalous remarks" against the commission, hence the issue was resolved, adding that Khan had made an unconditional apology on the matter.

Imran was also ordered to appear on that day in the commission in person. A larger bench of the court, comprising Justice Aamer Farooq, Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb, observed on Wednesday, that it would hear the case only after the ECP gives its decision.

During last hearing on September 27, the CEC had remarked that the ECP will announce its decision on October 12 after observing the Islamabad High Court's ruling for the petition, filed by the PTI against the commission to conduct hearing of contempt case.
