'Bundle package of bail' shows Imran is above judicial system: Marriyum.

ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb on Saturday said that the "bundle package of bail" given to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan conveyed a message that he was above the law and the judicial system.

In a tweet, without naming Imran Khan, she said the "terrorist" who attacked police, the judicial system, and the state "got a bundle package of bail."

The minister said it was a message for those who were attacked and got injured in the line of duty that "the foreign agent, Toshakhana watch thief" was above the law and the justice system. She said that "terrorist Imran" had not thrown petrol bombs at the personnel of police and rangers but at the court orders.

Allowing the accused to come to courts with crowds would give a message that the justice system and law in Pakistan were afraid of terrorists, thugs, goons, threats and abuses, she said.

Stating that Imran's antics were giving the wrong message that powerful people were above the law, the minister said that Imran Khan was not afraid of playing with national interests, hatching conspiracies and blatantly violating the law and the Constitution.

The minister questioned whether the justice system was "afraid of terrorists and petrol bombs". "When a Ladla (a darling), a hooligan, a scoundrel comes to courts like this and he gets a bundle relief package from the court, it gives the wrong message," she maintained.

She said that Imran Khan illegally dissolved the National Assembly fearing the success of the no-confidence motion by compelling the President, Speaker and Deputy Speaker National Assembly to violate the Constitution.

The minister said Imran Khan had brainwashed the youth and has been instigating them to attack the state and national institutions.

She lamented that "a thief, a terrorist and corrupt person" was still at large. She reminded that Imran Khan has not appeared in this case since the start of its hearing in the Election Commission of Pakistan from 18 August 2022. The minister said that on August 18, August 21, 2022, January 31, 2023, February 7, 2023, Imran Khan did not appear in the Islamabad High Court. On January 31...
