Fact-check: Islamabad High Court did not order live broadcast of Imran Khan's speeches

No such order has been passed by the Islamabad High Court recently

A claim that has accumulated thousands of interactions on Facebook and X (Twitter) alleges that the Islamabad High Court (IHC) recently ruled for the live broadcast of jailed former prime minister Imran Khan’s speeches on television channels.

The claim is baseless.


On June 20, a user wrote on Facebook: "Breaking news, Islamabad High Court has ordered to telecast Imran Khan’s speech on television." The post has been liked nearly 500 times, shared over 29 times to date.

The identical text has been shared here, here and here.


No such order has been passed by the IHC recently.

Asif Iqbal, the public relations officer of the high court debunked the online claims. He confirmed to Geo Fact Check that upon checking with the relevant judicial branch, no such written order regarding Khan’s speeches has been received from any of the eight courtrooms.
