Just a day before the high court is due to take up for hearing the intra-court appeal filed by former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan against holding his trial in the US cipher case inside the Adiala Jail, the caretaker federal cabinet on Monday approved the Ministry of Law’s summary for holding the trial in the jail, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The trial will be held tomorrow (November 14).

The summary sent by the law ministry said that the Interior Ministry and the Official Secrets Act Court Judge Abual Hasnat had recommended holding trial of the former prime minister inside the jail.

The summary further read that the recommendation had been made in view of security threats to the PTI chairman.

Copies of the Special Branch’s threat report and the judge’s recommendation were also attached to the summary.

A division bench of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) had a week ago issued notices to the authorities concerned on an appeal, seeking trial of former prime minister Imran Khan in the cipher case in an open court.

The IHC division bench was hearing the former prime minister’s intra-court appeal against a single-member bench’s decision that had approved his jail trial.
