Ex-Pak PM Imran Khan Says All Cases Pending Against Him Will End If…

Imran Khan, Pakistan’s imprisoned former prime minister, asserted that all pending cases against him would be dropped if he adheres to influential figures’ directives, hinting at an implicit message. The founder of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) also highlighted his role in exposing a conspiracy, referring to the cipher case, and criticized the caretaker government’s lack of neutrality, deeming the Election Commission practically ineffective. Speaking to journalists after a court hearing at Adiala Jail, Khan noted that cases involving the Toshakhana (treasury) – pertaining to Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari – had been closed. He pointed out that Maryam Nawaz received a BMW from Toshakhana, not declared, but her case was also disposed of.

Khan, aged 71, claimed that Maryam, according to the Panama case, owned four flats, yet the National Accountability Bureau withdrew from the case. The PTI founder highlighted facing over 200 criminal cases, an unprecedented number in Pakistan’s history, lamenting the lack of rule of law hindering the country’s progress. Despite being unaware of the distribution of party tickets, Khan addressed internal conflicts within PTI, where merit allegedly took a back seat to favor ex-lawmakers and influential individuals. PTI workers expressed discontent over unfair ticket distribution within the Adiala jail premises, prompting Khan to assert he was not consulted on the matter due to his confinement. He questioned how he could decide on 850 tickets verbally.

Imprisoned since August last year, Khan faced arrest on Tuesday over a dozen cases related to the May 9 violence, including an attack on the army headquarters. The political landscape in Pakistan appears tense amid internal disputes and legal challenges faced by its prominent political figures.
