Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman and former prime minister on Saturday challenged amendments made to the Official Secrets Act and Pakistan Army Act in Supreme Court.

The PTI Chairman Imran Khan filed a petition in the apex court through his advocate Shohaib Shaheen against recent amendments to Army Act 1952 under Article 184 of the Constitution of Pakistan.

The petition contends that the new clauses are in violation of human rights.

President and PTI member Dr Arif Alvi, the Government of Pakistan, and the National Assembly have been listed as respondents in the petition, which prays for repealing the Official Secrets Act and the Army Amendment Act.

“The Army Amendment Act and the Official Secrets Act were not signed by the President. The Army Amendment Act and the Official Secrets Act were contrary to Article 10A, Article 8 and Article 19,” it stated.
