The Islamabad High Court (IHC) is still deciding whether to have a private hearing for Imran Khan, the Chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) political party, in the cipher case. The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has requested the court to exclude the public from the hearing due to the sensitivity of the information involved. Last month, the IHC asked the FIA to submit an application if they wanted a private hearing. The FIA has also submitted a challan, which is a document outlining the charges and evidence, against Imran Khan and PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi. The FIA claims that Imran Khan had a copy of the cipher but did not return it. They have also provided a list of 28 witnesses, including former foreign secretaries and additional foreign secretary, as evidence in the case. The cipher case revolves around the alleged misuse of diplomatic cipher contents, which Imran Khan used as evidence of a plot to remove his government when Qureshi was the foreign minister. Imran Khan is currently in Attock Jail, while Qureshi is in Adiala Jail in relation to this case.
