Imran Khan wants ‘ex-army general, US envoy’ to be summoned for cipher trial: lawyer

  • Special court to indict Imran Khan, Shah Mahmood Qureshi again on December 12
Published December 4, 2023

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawyer Babar Awan said on Monday that former prime minister and the party’s ex-chairman Imran Khan wants an “ex-army general and a US envoy” to be summoned by the special court hearing the cipher case, Aaj News reported.

Talking to the media, Awan said Imran passed these remarks during the cipher case trial proceedings at Adiala Jail.

During Monday’s proceedings, the special court decided to indict the former premier Imran Khan and ex-foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi in the cipher case again on December 12.

Imran blames Nawaz Sharif for May 9 violence in rare media remarks

Both Imran and Qureshi have already been indicted in the case on October 23. They have pleaded not guilty.

Today, the hearing was held at the Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi by special court Judge Abul Hasnat Zulqarnain.

Imran and Qureshi were provided with copies of the case record following a request by their lawyers.

A case was registered against Imran and Qureshi under Sections 5 and 9 of the Official Secrets Act, 1923. It is related to the “misuse” of alleged contents of a diplomatic cipher, cited by ex-premier Imran as proof of the attempt to remove his government.

Last week, the special court ruled that the cipher case hearing will continue at Adiala Jail but in open court.

This case and many other cases are fixed matches, every citizen knows this, especially PTI party workers and voters because at grassroots level their leaders are being threatened and hiding in fear of arrest on fictitious cases. That's democracy and human rights for EU and US of A.

This is where IK loses me. He compromised national security by releasing the cipher. Not that others haven't done something just as worse.

@werwer,Kindly clarify how the act of disclosing a threat from a US official, along with interference in Pakistan's internal matters, compromised national security. This interference from US appears to have led to the detriment of democracy and freedom of speech in the our beloved country. Pakistan Zindabad!
