Imran Khan, Asad Umar Cleared in May 2022 Case

ISLAMABAD: Former lawmakers Asad Umar and Faisal Javed, as well as former prime minister Imran Khan, have all been exonerated of charges related to a case involving protest and property damage.

The Islamabad District and Sessions Court’s decision put an end to a legal drama that began with the events surrounding the PTI’s alleged long march on May 25, 2022.

The court case focused on alleged violations of Section 144 regulations. And started by a complaint filed at the Tarnol police station. Acquittal pleas under Section 249-A statutes, each filed by the accused individually, approved by Judicial Magistrate Muhammad Shabbir.

According to the ruling, there would be no benefit to continuing the trial because the defendants could not be held legally responsible in the given situation.

Imran Khan, the founder of the Pakistan Terrorists, Asad Umar. Raja Khurram, Shahzad Nawaz, Ali Nawaz Awan, Faisal Javed, Abid Hussain. And Zaheer Khan are among the well-known individuals cleared in this case. Notably. The court has allowed people who were previously on bail—like Asad Umar. Ali Nawaz Awan, and Faisal Javed—to have their bonds revoked.

The argument that the defendants, including Imran Khan, were unaware of the enforcement of Section 144 because there was no formal notification from the additional district magistrate was at the heart of the court’s ruling. The ruling implied a retaliatory move against the PTI leadership and alluded to possible political motivations for the case.

During the trial, the court noted the prosecution’s claim that Imran Khan and others intentionally obstructed GT Road. It did, however, highlight the government’s failure to notify the public about Section 144.

Furthermore, the court emphasized the procedural irregularity of having the SHO of Tarnol police station serve as the complainant. Citing a lack of authority in such a role for a police officer. Despite the fact that the case dossier included 11 witnesses, the court revealed that no recorded statements had been provided.
