Supreme Court issued a notice to PM Khan for attending Insaf lawyer forum ceremony

The Supreme Court on Monday issued a notice to Prime Minister Imran Khan for attending a PTI-affiliated Justice Lawyers Forum (ILF) function in Islamabad last week.

“The prime minister is not the prime minister of a particular group, and he is the prime minister of the whole country. Why is he misusing state resources?” Justice Qazi Faiz Issa remarked during the hearing of the civil case against the Punjab government. He added that the issue was related to the constitution and fundamental rights.

The apex court also issued notices to the Attorney General, Punjab Advocate General, and in-charge of the convention center in connection with the function. Justice Isa asked the central in-charge of the convention to inform the court whether the expenses of the function had been paid.

Justice Issa further said that the Prime Minister participated in the event in his personal capacity. In his remarks, the SC judge said the prime minister could not align himself with any particular group. “The prime minister attended the ceremony and supported a special group,” he said.
