Yasmin Rashid condemns victimisation, recurrent arrests in letter to CJP

LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) leader Dr. Yasmin Rashid addressed a letter to Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa on Tuesday, raising concerns over what she termed as the “bogus government” repeatedly transferring judges overseeing cases involving her and other party members.

She lamented the lack of justice, asserting that instead of fairness, there seemed to be a pattern of political vengeance. She further emphasized that PTI had been enduring this for a year, with no respite in sight.

Questioning the integrity of the authorities, she pointed out instances where individuals, once granted bail, were promptly rearrested on fresh charges. She also highlighted the absence of police with case records and the sudden disappearance of prosecutors during hearings.

Urging the chief justice to intervene, Dr. Rashid pleaded for the establishment of a judicial commission to address the grievances stemming from the May 9 incident, which marked a year without resolution.

The unrest on May 9, triggered by the arrest of PTI founder Imran Khan, resulted in widespread violence and clashes across the country. Many PTI members, including high-ranking officials, were detained, with trials scattered across various courts.

The riots, labeled a “Black Day” by the military, saw attacks on both civil and military installations, leading to further repercussions for the PTI members involved.
