Imran Khan faces serious security threats
The Attock jail administration has opted not to present the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party before the Islamabad High Court (IHC) in connection with the Cipher case. According to the jail authorities, the act of transferring the PTI Chairman from the prison to the courtroom poses a potential security threat.
They have raised concerns about the safety of this process, prompting them to seek an exemption from the court for the former prime minister.
Moreover, officials from Attock jail have made a formal request to the court to spare the former prime minister from appearing in court on September 25. This request is part of the ongoing legal proceedings related to the Cipher case, which has garnered significant attention.
The Islamabad High Court, on the other hand, has scheduled a hearing for the bail application of the PTI Chairman in the Cipher case. The registrar's office has issued a cause list, and the bail plea is set to be heard on the upcoming Monday, with IHC Chief Justice Aamer Farooq presiding over the proceedings.
Imran Khan, the Chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, had been incarcerated on August 5 after being found guilty in the Toshakhana case. His legal battles continue as the Cipher case takes center stage in the legal landscape.
