IslamabadAccording to a circular issued by the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday, former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan will be charged on Thursday in a defamation case against him for making controversial remarks against a woman judge during a rally here last month. .

During a rally here on August 20, Khan, 69, threatened to file a case against top police officials, the Election Commission and political opponents over the treatment of his aide Shahbaz Gill, who was arrested on charges of sedition.

He also took exception to Additional District and Sessions Judge Zeba Chaudhary, who granted Gill’s two-day physical remand at the request of the police, saying that he should “prepare himself as the proceedings against him will be done.”

Hours after the speech, Khan was booked under the Anti-Terrorism Act for threatening the police, judiciary and other state institutions at his rally.

Justice Aamir Farooq, while hearing a petition challenging Gill’s police remand, has decided to initiate defamation proceedings against Khan.

On Wednesday, the circular issued by the IHC said that the proceedings of the case will begin at 2:30 pm, during which a larger bench will frame the charges against Khan.

“Imran Khan’s 15-member legal team, 15 law officers from the office of the Attorney-General and the Advocate-General will be allowed to enter the courtroom,” read the circular.

It further stated that no one other than the above will be allowed to enter the court, unless they have special passes issued by the IHC Registrar’s office.

“[The] Islamabad administration and police will make security arrangements to maintain the decorum of the court.

Earlier, on September 8, terming Khan’s response at the previous hearing as “unsatisfactory”, the IHC decided to indict him for not tendering an unconditional apology.

The court gave Khan two chances to file a written reply to satisfy the court but he failed to satisfy the court which announced the charge sheet against him.

Khan was ousted from power in April after losing a no-confidence vote in his leadership, which he accused of being part of a US-led conspiracy to target him because of his independent foreign policy decisions on Russia, China and Afghanistan. was

The cricketer-turned-politician, who came to power in 2018, is the only Pakistani prime minister to be ousted in a no-confidence motion in parliament.
