Imran Khan to respond to contempt notice today

Imran Khan will personally appear in Supreme Court on Friday to respond to a contempt of  court notice issued over his comments about the judiciary’s role in the May 11 general election.

The apex court’s registrar issued the notice to the head of the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf party yesterday and directed him to appear in court to explain why action should not be taken against him for his remarks against the court and its judges during a news conference on July 26.

Prima facie, it seems that Imran Khan has started a deliberate campaign to scandalise the court and bring the judges into hatred, ridicule or contempt, chief justice Iftikhar Chaudhry noted in his written order. A notice was also issued to Attorney General Munir A Malik.
