SC Investigates Viral Leaked Photo of Imran Khan in NAB Case

The Supreme Court is looking into changes in the accountability laws while former Prime Minister Imran Khan appeared before it through video link as a petitioner. Earlier, the Supreme Court asked the federal and Punjab governments to help Imran Khan appear via video link from Adiala Jail.

Today, the Chief Justice of Pakistan and four other judges resumed hearing the case. Imran Khan appeared via video wearing blue shirt. The photo quickly spread on social media, leading the court to respond. Subsequently, investigators identified the individual responsible for leaking the viral image. After reviewing the CCTV footage, it was revealed that a young lawyer took the picture, as per sources. This breach of courtroom regulations has compelled the court to contemplate legal measures against the offender.

Imran hasn’t been seen in public since his arrest last year. The Islamabad High Court granted bail to Imran in a £190 million case, and an Islamabad court acquitted him in a 2022 case. PTI expressed concerns about a visitors’ ban in Adiala jail, thinking it was to keep Imran away from court.

During the hearing, senior lawyer Khawaja Haris and lawyer Makhdoom Ali Khan represented Imran and the federal government respectively. The federal government’s lawyer said the NAB amendment case was under review in the Islamabad High Court.

The Supreme Court had allowed Imran’s petition against changes in the NAB law, which he said favored influential people.

In September last year, the Supreme Court decided to reinstate corruption cases against public officeholders withdrawn due to the amendments. Later, a five-judge bench halted accountability courts from issuing final verdicts in graft cases. The Supreme Court resumed hearing on Tuesday, asking for Imran’s presence via video link.
