I condemned arrest of many journalists when @ImranKhanPTI was in power. I condemn arrest of journalists when @CMShehbaz is in power. Latest arrest of Imran Riaz Khan is shameful. @RSF_inter @CPJAsia @FreedomofPress https://t.co/GIc9vnN1sr— Hamid Mir (@HamidMirPAK) February 2, 2023
On July 5th, 2022, as he was driving towards the federal capital to secure bail from the Islamabad High Court, Imran found himself surrounded by the Punjab Police at the Islamabad Toll Plaza. Despite being aware of protective pre-arrest bail orders issued by the Islamabad and Lahore High Courts, he was arrested before he could exit Punjab jurisdiction. This arrest came as a shock to many, as it defied court orders intended to protect the journalist.
The reason for the arrest was not made public but In a video posted on YouTube, Riaz claimed that if he is not released, he will reveal the names of those behind the alleged operation to bring about a change in the government through foreign influence, which led to a constitutional crisis and resulted in the ousting of the PTI government led by Imran Khan. Riaz refers to this event as an “American conspiracy” against the sovereignty of Pakistan, which resulted in the removal of the former Prime Minister from office.
He was released on 9th July 2022 by the Lahore HC but was again arrested on 2nd Feb 2023. Twitter has erupted with hashtags supporting Imran and criticizing the system for his arrest.
