A new MNA arrest warrant has been issued.

In the Azadi March case against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan and others, Raja Khurram Shehzad Nawaz, a recently elected member of the National Assembly (MNA), has an arrest warrant issued for him.

The case was heard by Judicial Magistrate Shaista Khan Kundi.

The PTI’s long march began on May 25, 2022, when workers from various cities gathered in the nation’s capital following Imran’s removal as prime minister due to a no-confidence resolution against him.

With several lawsuits filed against him and his party for inciting violence and clashing with law authorities, Imran decided to call off the long march on May 26 out of fear that things would turn violent.

The government has closed all entry and departure points in the city in a bid to stop Imran’s convoy from entering the capital. Still, an urgent Supreme Court order forced it to let the protesters in.

The PTI founder ended the event on May 26 by cautioning the government to hold new elections or risk further massive protests.

After turning himself to the court, Asad Umar and Ali Nawaz Awan had their non-bailable arrest warrants revoked during the hearing.

Along with their lawyers, Umar and Awan arrived in court. The request of Umar and Awan to turn themselves in the court and have the warrant withdrawn was granted, but Nawaz’s non-bailable arrest warrant was issued because he failed to show up for court despite the summons.

For each of their parts, Umar and Awan submitted separate acquittal petitions.

The court postponed the next hearing until February 26 to hear arguments on the acquittal applications.
