Hearing on the cipher case
The court will also hear privately today on the bail application of former Prime Minister Imran Khan in the cipher case.
The issue concerns the disclosure of state secrets through a classified cable which the PTI chief showed at a rally to support his allegations that Washington was behind his removal. After Imran Khan’s former principal secretary Azam Khan said in a statement that Imran used American ciphers for his own political gain, the case against the PTI chairman became serious.
The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has accused the former cricket legend of leaking the contents of a secret message sent by Pakistan’s ambassador to the United States last year and asking him to oppose the no-confidence vote. Benefited for political purposes.
While PTI said that the request of federal investigators was an additional attempt to block the procedure of the case.
In the challan submitted to the special court last week, the FIA named PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi and his successor as the main defendants.
PTI, on the other hand, said its party chief was denied bail while in custody without access to his legal team or very limited access or an opportunity to appear on video link.
