Cipher Case: IHC Declares Imran Khan’s Jail Trial Null and Void

Islamabad: The Islamabad High Court has delivered its verdict on the jail trial of Imran Khan in the Cipher case, declaring the jail trial null and void, nullifying the August 29th notification.

The IHC division bench, comprising Justice Mian­gul Hassan Aur­angzeb and Justice Saman Rafat Imtiaz, declared Imran Khan’s intra-court appeal against a single-member bench’s decision approving the ex-premier’s jail trial in the cipher case. The court also upheld Judge Abual Hasnat Zulqarnain’s appointment to conduct Imran’s trial under the Official Secrets Act in the cipher case.

According to details, the court clarified that the notification issued by the law ministry for Imran’s jail trial was no longer applicable. The court stated that, according to the law, the notification issued in the past regarding the application of jail trial in extraordinary circumstances after the cabinet’s approval on November 13 will not be applicable.

The cipher case revolves around a diplomatic document, that saw Imran Khan and his party member Shah Mahmood Qureshi pleading not guilty on October 23.
