Imran, Qureshi’s judicial remand in cipher case extended to September 26

LAHORE MIRROR – In an update, Imran Khan, the leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), and Shah Mahmood Qureshi, the vice-chairman of the party, have had their judicial remand extended in the cipher case.

This special court, established under the Official Secrets Act, decided to extend their remand until September 26.

Imran Khan’s current detention began after he was found guilty in the Toshakhana case on August 5, which revolved around his failure to properly disclose gifts received during his time in government.

Although the Islamabad High Court overturned the lower court’s decision to sentence him to three years in prison and impose a fine of Rs 100,000, it prevented him from participating in upcoming elections. Consequently, he remains in detention due to his involvement in the cipher case.

Last month, the former prime minister was officially detained by the FIA (Federal Investigation Agency) under the Official Secrets Act, marking a significant development in his legal situation.
