Pak Foreign Minister disqualified from parliament

A three-member special bench of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday disqualified Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif as a member of the parliament, reports said.

Petitioner Usman Dar of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), who lost elections to Asif in 2013, had filed the petition last year, seeking Asif’s disqualification for holding a UAE iqama (visa).

Supporters of the PTI started chanting slogans of “Go Nawaz Go” outside the court after the announcement of the verdict, a detailed version of which has yet to be released.

The bench, comprising Justice Athar Minallah, Justice Aamer Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani, had reserved the verdict on April 10.
