Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has said he is willing to provide a surety bond to appear in court on Saturday, despite clashes continuing between his supporters and law enforcement. A lower trial court in Islamabad had previously issued an arrest warrant for Khan after he failed to appear before them several times. He has been accused of unlawfully selling state gifts while in power from 2018 to 2022, but denies any wrongdoing. During his video address, Khan cited security concerns around the court due to two previous militant attacks. Khan and his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party have cited political motives behind the charges against him, claiming they are part of a witch-hunt against opposition leaders. Opposition lawmakers have claimed the government of Prime Minister Imran Khan has used the courts to target opponents, a claim the party denies. Imran Khan served as the 22nd Prime Minister of Pakistan from August 2018 until his resignation in April 2022, following a vote of no confidence.
