The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Thursday issued non-bailable arrest warrants for PakistanTehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in the contempt of court case against him for "repeatedly failing to appear for the hearing and for failing to send a written apology to the ECP for his absence in court".

A larger bench of the court, comprising Justice Aamer Farooq, Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb, observed on Wednesday, that it would hear the case only after the ECP gives its decision. Later, when the PTI chief did not submit any response, the ECP issued a second show-cause notice to him on August 24. Babar Awan, Chief Counsel of PTI told media that the EC has issued a fresh warrant in the same case in which it has already suspended another warrant last month.
Akbar Babar, the petitioner who had filed the foreign funding case against the PTI leadership, had informed the ECP that Khan had accused it of being biased in the foreign funding case following which his counsel tendered an apology with the commission.
During the meeting, the ECP chose to issue non-bailable warrants for Khan. "We will also look into whether this is contempt of the IHC's full bench or not, and then (the party) we will challenge it".
