The Chairman of PTI has filed nine appeals in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) challenging the rejection of his bail pleas in various cases, including the May 09 riots, judicial complex attack, and fake accounts. The applications were submitted by his lawyer, Salman Safdar.

Out of the nine bail pleas, six were rejected by the Sessions Court and three by the Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC).

In the petitions filed with the IHC, the PTI lawyer has requested that the verdict of bail rejection be declared null and void. He further urged the IHC to instruct the trial courts to reassess the cases on their merits and prevent the police from arresting the PTI chairman in these nine cases.

Prior to this, the Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had approached the Supreme Court to file a petition against the Chief Justice of the Islamabad High Court (IHC), Aamer Farooq. The petition, filed by Latif Khosa on behalf of the PTI Chairman, invoked Article 186-A.

In the petition, the PTI Chairman appealed for the transfer of his cases from the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to either the Lahore or Peshawar High Courts. The petitioner also sought to prevent Chief Justice Aamer Farooq from presiding over the cases against him.

Furthermore, the PTI Core Committee has announced plans to request a reference against Justice Aamer Farooq from the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC).
