Trouble for Imran Khan, after ex-wife Reham’s book release

International Politics

ISLAMABAD: A book written by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan’s ex-wife Reham Khan has caused a lot of trouble for the cricketer-turned-politician who is in the race to be Pakistan’s prime minister after the 25 July general elections in the country.

Reham said on Monday that her former husband is not ‘sadiq and amin’ (honest and righteous) in line with constitutional provisions as he hid his third marriage for two months. Reham, whose marriage with Khan in 2015 ended after 10 months, asked Pakistan Supreme Court Chief Justice Saqib Nisar to take suo motu notice of the matter.

She claimed Khan had kept his marriage to faith healer Bushra Maneka under wraps for two months and equivocated when pressed for an answer. This constituted a violation of Article 62 and 63 of Pakistan’s Constitution, she was quoted as saying by the Pakistani media.

Nawaz Sharif was disqualified as prime minister in the Panama Papers case by the Supreme Court under the same provision.
