Judicial Remand Extended for Imran and Qureshi in Cipher Case Until September 26

A special court, operating under the provisions of the Official Secrets Act, has decided to extend the judicial remand of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and the party’s Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi until September 26 in connection with the cipher case.

Imran Khan has been in jail since his conviction in the Toshakhana case on August 5, where he was found guilty of failing to properly declare gifts he received during his time in office. Despite the Islamabad High Court overturning a lower court’s decision to imprison him for three years and impose a fine of Rs100,000, a ruling that initially barred him from participating in upcoming elections, he remains incarcerated due to his arrest in the cipher case.

The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) officially arrested the former prime minister last month under the Official Secrets Act in relation to the cipher case.
