Tareen to return from UK with some ‘documents’ today
ISLAMABAD – Former PTI secretary general Jahangir Khan Tareen will return to Pakistan today from the UK where he got ‘extensive’ legal advice on the English Trust Law to prepare his case for review in the Supreme Court against his lifetime disqualification.
An office-bearer of the PTI’s Central Secretariat told The Nation that Tareen will return on Saturday at a time when a crucial meeting of the party was also scheduled.
Sources in PTI said though the counsel of Tareen advised him not to file a review in the apex court against his disqualification, he was determined to do so.
“It will become difficult for Traeen to live with the stigma of disqualification,” the office-bearer said, adding that the PTI would try to get relief from the court through the review petition.
The sources said Tareen was returning with some documents on English Trust Law. Tareen held legal deliberations in London about the definitions of actual the beneficial owner and a beneficial owner, the sources said. Tareen had left for London after the court announced its judgment on December 15.
Meanwhile, PTI chief Imran Khan will resume his political activities from today as his children who were currently visiting him are also scheduled to go back to the UK on Saturday.
Imran has summoned an important meeting of the core committee in which, according to a PTI official, the issue of filing a review petition would be discussed. He said the issue of delimitation of constituencies and the reallocation of seats of National Assembly would also come under discussion and the party would urge the Election Commission of Pakistan to complete the delimitation process within three months. The meeting would also discuss the preparation for next elections.
