Imran Khan hires a UK attorney to represent him in international courts


LAHORE MIRROR – Imran Khan, the chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), has taken a significant step in his legal fight against “unlawful detention and human rights abuses” by enlisting the help of British attorney Geoffrey Robertson KC to represent him in international courts.

The announcement comes as the ousted prime minister, who was jailed in the Attock District after being found guilty on August 5 in the Toshakhana case, is still being held there after being removed from office in April of last year.

The PTI leader was found guilty for failing to disclose gifts he received while in office; as a result, he received a three-year prison term and a Rs. 100,000 fine, disqualifying him from running in the upcoming elections.

Despite the fact that the Islamabad High Court had overturned the conviction, he was still imprisoned until September 13 as a result of his judicial remand in the cipher case after being charged by the Federal Investigation Agency with divulging state secrets in violation of the Official Secrets Act.

Khan’s political party shared a post on its official X account on Friday announcing that it had hired the international legal expert who had previously defended Salman Rushdie and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. This post announced the development regarding the UK lawyer.

The party tweeted an image of post from the Doughty Street Chambers, group of barristers’ chambers based in the UK, confirming its decision to bring Robertson on board. “PTI Chairman, @ImranKhan, Former Prime MinisterThe prominent human rights attorney Geoffrey Robertson KC of @DoughtyStreet Chambers has been appointed by PTI to advise and represent him in international courts about wrongful detention and human rights violations.
