Imran moves the Supreme Court against ‘undeclared martial law’


ISLAMABAD, May 25 (IANS) The head of Pakistan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan filed a petition with the Supreme Court on Thursday, urging the Supreme Court to be alert to “undeclared martial law” in parts of the country and the ongoing aggressive campaign on his party, media reports said. .

Khan, through his lawyer Hamid Khan, has asked the Supreme Court to investigate the government’s decision to call “to assist the Armed Forces of the Federal Capital Territory, Punjab, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) in the alleged exercise of powers under Article 245 of the Constitution,” the Express Tribune reported. .

The petition stated that “the exercise of this power by the Federal Council of Ministers in the absence of objective conditions for the exercise of that power is a clear violation of fundamental rights.”

Khan also appealed to the Supreme Court to appoint a committee headed by a High Court judge to investigate the events surrounding his arrest on 9 May, and the subsequent incidents.

It is worth noting that military courts are set to hear cases against 16 “miscreants”, who were allegedly involved in attacking military installations and disrespecting the Martyrs’ Monument following the arrest of the former prime minister, The Express Tribune reported.

Many questions were raised before the High Court in the application, not only about the nature of Khan’s arrest—which the High Court declared unlawful—but also about the invocation of the Army Act 1952 and the Official Secrets Act 1923 against civilian offenders.
