ISLAMABAD:Former Prime Minister and Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan has clarified on Thursday that the reference filed against Supreme Court (SC) judge Justice Qazi Faiz Isa came from someone at a higher position than ex-ISI DG General (retd) Faiz Hameed.
Talking informally with reporters at the Islamabad High Court (IHC) Khan emphasized his desire to avoid any disagreements with the judiciary and stated that he was convinced that the law is equal for all. However, he later discovered that the motive behind filing the reference was something else.
He expressed concern about the growing number of cases against him.
On the issue of talks with the Taliban, Khan clarified that his party had been engaging in discussions with the Afghan government on how to send back members of the outlawed Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) who were returning to Pakistan. He emphasized that the talks were with the government of the Afghan Taliban and that Generals (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa and Faiz Hameed were also involved in the discussions.
