Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan has submitted a request to the Supreme Court, seeking permission to appear in the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) amendment case in a 'personal capacity', following his previous appearance via video link. The incarcerated prime minister has sent a written request to the Chief Justice, forwarding it through the Adiala jail administration, asking for permission to personally appear before the SC in the case. The Pakistan SC has scheduled the hearing for the NAB amendment case on May 30.

Last week, Imran Khan appeared before the Supreme Court via video call after a five-member bench approved his appearance in the case challenging the NAB Ordinance 1999 amendments. The federal government has filed a review plea in the NAB amendments case under the SC Practice and Procedure Law, naming the Federation of Pakistan, National Accountability Bureau, and PTI founder as respondents. The government is seeking nullification of the SC's decision in the case, asserting that the legislation is within the Parliament's rights.

In a 2-1 majority verdict, the apex court upheld PTI founder Imran Khan's petition challenging the amendments made to the country's accountability laws during the previous Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM)-led government's tenure. Additionally, the SC has reinstated graft cases against public office holders that were closed following the amendments to National Accountability Bureau laws.
