A Pakistan excessive court on Monday ordered removing of terrorism charges against former Prime Minister Imran Khan, his defence lawyer stated.

The court stated Khan’s alleged offence didn’t entice terrorism charges, Faisal Chaudhry, the lawyer informed Reuters.

The charges are associated to a speech by Khan wherein he allegedly threatened police and judicial officers after one of his shut aides was denied bail in a sedition case.

“The case against Imran Khan, nevertheless, will stay intact that can now be tried in an abnormal court, as a substitute an anti-terrorism court,” Chaudhry stated.

Islamabad police introduced up the charges against Khan in August after his public remarks that he wouldn’t spare the police and a judicial officer, who had denied bail to his aide.

Khan subsequently stated that his remarks weren’t meant to be a menace, however that he would take legal motion against the officers.
