KARACHI: Hailing the suspension of the sentence of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi in the Toshakhana case, Rauf Hassan, the party spokesperson Monday said all the bids to politically and physically break Imran Khan, the party founder, fell flat on the face.

“It is prayed that the good series of events that started today continue, and the country comes out of the clutches of fascism,” he said.

According to Hassan, the sentence of the founder of PTI has only been suspended, it has not been "overturned," and the Toshakhana case against the founder of PTI is one of the most absurd ones. 

The spokesperson said that perhaps the IHC chief justice realised today that the punishment in Toshakhana could not be maintained legally and morally. "PTI has never said at any stage that they do not trust the courts," Hassan added.

He said the theft of the mandate on February 8 was clear as daylight, adding, that the founder of PTI had been made a target of the worst political revenge, and the system completely collapsed as a result.

“The PTI mandate was ambushed on February 8. The election results on the night of 8th were different from the ones on the morning of February 9 and the courts had apparently become Kangaroo courts or were being toyed with by the establishment,” Hassan said.

Moreover, the party also raised objections to the formation of a seven-member bench in response to the matter of high court judges' letter to Supreme Court alleging spy agencies of intervention in the judicial affairs.

Hassan stated that the matter of the judges' letter was extremely important, and the formation of the seven-member bench was unacceptable. He demanded a full court and immediate action on the judges' letter.

He mentioned that Chief Justice summoned lawyers’ convention without any notice and stamped the whole matter with suspicions and doubts. Agencies, executives, Chief Justice Aamer Farooq, and Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa were respondents to the judges' letter.

He added that a decision was made in the cabinet meeting before forming the inquiry commission. "An accused was asked to form the inquiry commission; the decision should have been made by the inquiry commission," Hassan said adding the letter was declared a lie in the cabinet meeting.

Hassan said that former chief justice Tassaduq Jillani was a very good person. "His son wrote a letter along with other lawyers demanding action according to the contents of the letter, after former chief justice of Pakistan, Tassaduq Jillani, refused to head the commission the notice was taken, and a full bench should be constituted immediately on the case," the PTI mouthpiece added.
