The Supreme Court has rejected Imran Khan’s plea regarding the Toshakhana case. Imran Khan is a member of the political party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). The case involves allegations of Imran Khan not disclosing details of gifts received from foreign dignitaries. A new three-member bench was formed to preside over the case, with Justice Rizvi replacing Justice Naqvi. During the hearing, Advocate Khawaja Haris represented Imran Khan and Advocate Amjad Pervaiz represented the Election Commission of Pakistan. The Supreme Court stated that the trial court cannot give a verdict on the Toshakhana case until the Islamabad High Court has given its verdict. Imran Khan withdrew his petition, and as a result, the Supreme Court dismissed his plea against the trial proceedings. The Toshakhana is a department responsible for storing valuable gifts given to government officials. Imran Khan was disqualified by the Election Commission in October last year for filing false and incorrect financial statements. He was accused of not disclosing the gifts he received from the Toshakhana and not reporting proceeds from their sale. Imran Khan was indicted in the case in May this year, and after appealing to the Islamabad High Court, the case was sent back to the trial court. Imran Khan then appealed to the Supreme Court to overturn the high court’s directive.
