"We have made a decision to challenge the ECP order today because it is illegal and the commission has no jurisdiction to issue any arrest warrants for a political leader", Khan's spokesman Naeemul Haq told Anadolu Agency. Earlier, a bailable arrest warrant was issued by the ECP on September 14, after Khan failed to appear for the hearing on the case. This warrant has been issued for failing to appear in the court repeatedly and not giving a written justification or apology to the court for not appearing despite various letters.
The ECP further accused him of underestimating the authority of the commission and "bringing it into disrepute and disrespect and to interfere with, obstruct, interrupt and prejudice the process of law and the due course of proceedings, and scandalising the commission".
Though the ECP claimed on August 10 that it has the legal right to hear the contempt case against Imran Khan, the PTI chief had earlier challenged the commission's jurisdiction to initiate hearing.
