The appeal stated that the arrest and remand hearing of Imran Khan on August 5 last year was conducted in the most outrageous and secret manner. A hasty judgment was passed against Imran Khan without any logical reason. The court concluded the trial in less than 20 days. The appeal also claimed that the judge's conduct violated Imran Khan's fundamental right to a fair trial.

Incidentally, on August 5 last year, Additional District and Sessions Judge (ADSJ) Humayun Dilawar of Islamabad sentenced Imran Khan to 3 years imprisonment in the Toshakhana corruption case. Imran Khan was arrested immediately after the verdict was announced. At the same time, the Election Commission (ECP) declared the leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) ineligible for election for five years.

A day later, the court sentenced Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi to 14 years in prison in the Toshakhana case.
