ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan wants the former Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa and the US Envoy summoned by the Special Court hearing the Cypher Case Trial at Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi, his Counsil Babar Awan told media.

Following the hearing of the Cypher Case held at Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi on Monday morning, Babar Awan told media that Imran Khan said before Judge Abdul Hasnat Zulqarnain that the former Army Chief and US Embassy representatives should also be called in the Court conducting the said Cypher Case Trial.

   

Meanwhile, during the hearing today, the Special Court established under the Official Secrets Act decided to indict PTI leaders Imran Khan and Shah Mahmood Qureshi in the Cypher Case.

Judge Abdul Hasnat Zulqarnain decided that charges would be filed afresh during the next hearing on December 12 as the Court has directives from the Islamabad High Court (IHC) to complete proceedings in a month.

Both party leaders are being tried under Sections 5 and 9 of the Official Secrets Act 1923.

Last year on March 27, 2022, ahead of a vote of no-confidence in the National Assembly that resulted in his ouster, the former Prime Minister Imran Khan had pulled out a piece of paper – allegedly the classified cipher – from his pocket and waved it at a public gathering in Islamabad, claiming it was evidence of an “international conspiracy” being hatched to topple his government.

The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) booked and arrested Imran Khan and former Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi for “wrongful use” of official secret information and illegal retention of the cipher telegram with malafide intentions.
