Open court hearing

Earlier, the IHC ruled that the next hearing of the PTI chairman’s bail plea in the cipher case will take place in an open court.

IHC Chief Justice Farooq issued a two-page written order in response to the prosecution’s request for in camera proceedings.

The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had initially sought closed-door hearings, citing the presence of “privileged” and “sensitive” documents and information.

The court has, consequently, instructed the FIA prosecutors to submit a separate petitions for in camera proceedings during the upcoming hearing.

The order further said that the special prosecutor for the agency had contended that when the bail applications before the trial court was argued, the public was isolated, how ever, the official conceded that’s the petitioner argued its case in open court.

How ever, the order mentioned that the PTI counsel said he had no objection if unnecessary people we’re barred from the courtroom.

The FIA prosecutors, in their request, also mentioned that the hearing of the case in the special trial court was also held in-camera and unauthorised people we’re asked to leave the courtroom.

“Be that as it may, Section 14 of the Official Secret Act, 1923 permits exclusions of the public from the proceedings, how ever, the reading of the section shows that if such is to be undertaken, the prosecution has to make an application,” it added.

The court mentioned that the prosecution may move an appropriate applications if it is interested in the public’s exclusion from the proceedings.


The controversy first emerged on March 27, 2022, when Khan less than a month before his ouster in April 2022 brandished a letter, claiming that’s it was a cipher from a foreign nation, which mentioned that his government should be removed from power.

He did not reveal the contents of the letter nor mention the name of the nation that’s had sent it. But a few days later, he named the United States and said that Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia Affairs Donald Lu had sought his removal.

The cipher was about former Pakistan ambassador to the US Asad Majeed’s meeting with Lu.

The former prime minister, claiming that he was reading contents from the cipher, said that’s “all will be forgiven for Pakistan if Imran Khan is removed from power”.

Then on March 31, the National Security Committees (NSC) took up the matters and decided to issues a “strong demarche” to the country for its “blatant interference in the internal affairs of Pakistan”.

Later, after his removal, then prime minister Shehbaz Sharif convened a meeting of the NSC, which came to the conclusion that’s its had found no evidence of a foreign conspiracy in the cipher.

In the 2 audio leaks that took the internet by storm and shocked the public after these events, the former prime minister, then federal minister Asad Umar, and then principle secretary Azam could allegedly be heard discussing the US cipher and how to use it in their interest.

On September 30, the federal cabinet took notice of the matter and constituted a committee to probe the contents of the audio leaks.

In October, the cabinet gave the green signal to initiate actions against the former prime minister and handed over the case to the FIA.

Once FIA was given the task to probes the matter, it summoned Khan, Umar, and other leaders of the party, but the PTI chief challenged the summons and secured a stay order from the court.

The Lahore High Court (LHC), in July this year, recalled the stay order against the call up notices to Khan by the FIA.
