PTI vice-chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi was brought to the Federal Judicial Complex in handcuffs by an FIA team, and his attendance was marked by court staff.
ISLAMABAD: (UrduPoint/Pakistan Point News-Sept 26th, 2023) Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi would remain in custody for an additional fourteen days, as a special court under the Official Secrets Act has extended their judicial remand until October 10 in the cipher case.
The FIA had previously booked Imran Khan and Shah Mahmood Qureshi under the Official Secrets Act, alleging that they had mishandled classified documents for political gain. The FIR stated that they had shared information from a secret classified document with unauthorized individuals, distorting facts for their personal motives and compromising state security.
He also expressed concern about alleged violations of the law and Constitution in the country.
Besides, he mentioned that court orders were not being followed by the authorities, citing the case of Parvez Elahi, who had been granted bail multiple times but remained incustody.
