Imran’s acquittal in Tyrian White case challenged in SC

The decision has been challenged by a private citizen

A private citizen has approached the Supreme Court against the dismissal of his petition seeking the disqualification of former Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The petitioner, Mohammad Sajid, alleged that Mr. Khan had failed to disclose the existence of his daughter, Tyrian Khan White, in his nomination papers for the 2018 general elections.

The petitioner, through his counsel Saad Mumtaz Hashmi, argued that the full bench of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) had erred in considering the concurring opinion of two out of three judges as the court’s judgment, even though the judgment had been reserved and not formally announced.

The petitioner claimed that when Mr. Khan filed his nomination papers to contest the election from the Mianwali constituency (NA-95) on June 11, 2018, he only provided details of his spouse, Bushra Bibi, and two sons living abroad, Qasim Khan and Sulaiman Khan.

The petitioner argued that by failing to mention the existence of Tyrian Khan White, who was born on June 15, 1992, and whose paternity had been confirmed by court records in California, United States, Mr. Khan had furnished a false affidavit, rendering him liable for disqualification under the principle established in the 2018 Habib Akram case.

The case had been dismissed by the IHC on May 21, 2014 after Chief Justice Aamer Farooq recused himself.
