ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan seems to have had enough with appearing before the anti-terrorism court (ATC) pertaining to the 2014 sit-in cases.
“They will keep summoning me. I thought this was the last time [I was to appear],” he was seen complaining to his lawyer Babar Awan after the hearing.
Imran Khan appeared on Thursday before the court in cases pertaining to the sit-in by PTI and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) in 2014.
The ATC is hearing four cases against the PTI chief including assault on state television building, the Parliament and SSP Asmatullah Junejo.
Imran has on various occasions expressed his displeasure at the cases against him, saying the sit-ins were peaceful and he should not be facing terrorism cases.
Last month, Imran, through his counsel, had surrendered himself before the ATC, which then approved the PTI chairman's bail for Rs200,000 in each case. The court had earlier issued non-bailable warrants against him and declared him a proclaimed offender as he had not appeared in any hearing.
