The court, ordering him to appear on October 12, remarked that all the cases would be heard at the same time.

While talking to media outside the court, Gilani said he had faced courts in the past and will also face them in the future.

“The government is registering false corruption cases against me,” he said adding that the acceptance of his bail plea was his moral victory.
