Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan has filed an objection against the involvement of Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa in his ongoing cases.

The objection was submitted in response to intra-court appeals filed against the Supreme Court's decision to annul the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) amendments.

Khan's petition argued that individuals who engaged in past corruption used laws and parliament as their shield, eroding public trust in the legal system. He emphasised that laws should serve the people, not protect specific individuals, and urged the Supreme Court to remain vigilant to the facts.

In his petition, Khan specifically requested that Justice Isa refrain from hearing his cases, citing concerns over impartiality. He referenced a precedent set by a five-member larger bench headed by former Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed, which supported his stance.

Khan expressed that past rulings should guide current proceedings to ensure justice is served. His appeal is part of a broader legal strategy to challenge the validity of NAB amendments and uphold accountability standards.

Last week, Khan had expressed his lack of confidence in Justice Isa and had declared his intention to go on a hunger strike in jail.

He had highlighted objections raised by his legal team regarding the judge's repeated presence, indicating a growing belief within his camp that justice may not be impartially served under these circumstances.

Sandip | 1 week ago | Reply Imran Khan Niazi had seen the veritable snake s feet when he went after his opponents with vengeance riding on the back of that despicable Faiz Hameed and Bajwa combine. Now his karma is catching up with him. I would love to see that free-loading gluttonous Niazi go on a hunger strike. Knowing his penchant for enjoying free gosht I will bet a million dollars that this Niazi will never go on a hunger strike.
