IHC rejects petition seeking Imran’s disqualification over Tyrian White issue

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court on Monday rejected a petition seeking disqualification of Prime Minister Imran Khan for not being Sadiq and Ameen.

The court while terming the petition non-maintainable threw it out.

A division bench of IHC headed by Chief Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb heard the petition. The petition was submitted by Hafiz Ehtesham.

The petitioner had submitted that Prime Minister Khan should be disqualified for ‘concealing’ his alleged parentage of Tyrian Jade Khan White in his nomination papers for the 2018 election.

The judges reprimanded the petitioner for the petition and rejected it for being non-maintainable.

The court remarked that the petition involved a personnel matter.

The petition was filed before the general elections 2018.

In Aug 2018, a two-member division of IHC bench had recused itself from hearing Wahab’s appeal after the counsel of a candidate from NA-53 Islamabad challenged the constitution of the bench.

In December 2018, Wahab joined the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI). He simultaneously decided to withdraw his petition against the premier.
