Islamabad HC Orders To De-seal PTI Chief Imran Khan’s Party Office

Islamabad High Court on Tuesday has ordered to de-seal the office of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in the federal capital, thus responding to a long-due plea of the party.

Earlier today, Judge Saman Riffat made the reserved ruling public, granting the PTI’s appeal against the office being sealed.

A few days ago, the Capital Development Authority closed the office in the G-8 area of Islamabad due to “violating building rules.”

CASE HISTORY

Previously this month, the PTI office was shut down, and a section of its headquarters was dismantled as part of an anti-encroachment operation.
According to the CDA spokesperson’s statement, by seizing land next to the plot, a large-scale encroachment was established.

The CDA spokesperson added, that despite several warnings and notices, including ones issued on November 19, 2020, February 22, 2021, June 14, 2022, and September 4, 2023, the violations were not addressed, while on May 10, 2024, the CDA issued orders to seal the plot.

When asked about the operation that resulted in the PTI office being sealed, CDA claimed that it was part of a campaign against encroachment in the capital and was being carried out without any discrimination.
