Former Prime Minister and Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan has hired British barrister Geoffrey Ronald Robertson in cases related to illegal detention and human rights violations.
Imran Khan has appointed renowned human rights barrister Geoffrey Robertson KC to advise and represent him in international courts regarding illegal detention and human rights violations.
KC Doughty is the founder chairman of Street Chambers. He has had a distinguished career as a trial and appellate counsel, an international judge, and author of well-known textbooks.
His books include crimes against humanity and the struggle for global justice.
Imran Khan’s party is facing a nationwide crackdown following the May 9 riots in which protesters vandalized state and military installations.
Dozens of party leaders, including top officials, have been arrested along with hundreds of party workers since the May 9 protests. Many left the party after their release while other leaders fled to avoid arrest.
The PTI chairman was sentenced to three years in prison and disqualified for five years in the Tosha Khana case on August 5.
Later, the Islamabad High Court suspended Imran Khan’s sentence, but after the special court extended his judicial remand for two weeks, his release could not be effected.
