SuchTV  |  Aug 16, 2022

In his remarks during today's hearing, acting IHC chief justice Aamer Farooq said: "Let us constitute a larger bench to hear this case."

"The larger bench will hear the case the day after tomorrow," he said.

Barristers Anwar Mansoor and Faisal Chaudhary appeared on behalf of the PTI, which was found by the Election Commission of Pakistan to have received prohibited funding. A notice was issued to the party asking it to explain why the funds should not be confiscated.

"We have challenged the Election Commission's fact-finding report," Mansoor said.

According to the lawyer, "it was not necessary to disclose accounts for various reasons".

"The money went from here (Centre) to provincial accounts, which was not necessary to disclose," the counsel said.

He appealed to the court to not take any action as far as the show cause notice issued to the party is concerned.

At this, Justice Farooq said that this matter, too, will be taken up by the larger bench.

The court then adjourned the hearing, before issuing directives for a larger bench to hear the case on August 18.
