In a comprehensive ruling, the IHC dismissed PTI Chief Imran Khan’s case in the Cipher Case and denied his request for bail.
In a thorough ruling, Chief Justice Aamir Farooq of the IHC announced that, in retrospect, Section five of the Official Secrets Act applies to the Case.
According to the Ruling, the Prosecution Argues that the Ministry of External Affairs deciphered the Cipher OR forwarded it to CHIEF PTI at the PM’s Secretariat, even though the PM had Received the Cipher or appeared to have misplaced it.
The statements of the EX or present Foreign Office Officers, particularly Asad Majeed, who sent the CIPHER, are on record. The prosecution claims, as stated in the court decision, that the cipher’s Contents were Twisted or Used for political purposes.
The Foreign Office officers’ Statements make it abundantly evident that there is no foreign conspiracy at play, according to the IHC’s ruling.
