Washington can’t win Afghan war sans Islamabad’s support: Khawaja Asif

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday reserved its verdict over the petition seeking disqualification of Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif for concealing his Iqama (work permit).
The IHC resumed hearing of the case seeking disqualification of Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif for concealing his Iqama. The court reserved its verdict after hearing the petition. The court is expected to forward the case to Chief Justice of IHC for the formation of the larger bench to hear the case.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Usman Dar had moved the IHC seeking disqualification of Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif for concealing his Iqama.
The PTI leader sought the disqualification on the grounds that Khawaja Asif had concealed the facts that he was an Iqama-holder, legal adviser of a company in UAE and his recent labor card was issued on June 29, 2017.
Dar requested the court to initiate quo-warranto inquisitorial proceedings in this regard requiring the respondent to explain that under what law he was holding public office.
