The businessman further said that a similar order was obtained in 2016 which he got the court to discharge.

Ibrahim said AMCON had filed an ex parte in March and wondered how that order was obtained this month, “eight clear months after when an exparte motion should be heard speedily in a matter of hours or days”.

According to Ibrahim, the order granting AMCON power to take over the assets was not properly obtained.
