IHC orders Imran Khan to not make content of ‘threat letter’ public

Islamabad, Mar 30 (UNI): The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday said it expects that Prime Minister Imran Khan, as an elected representative, will not make content of a letter, which he had claimed was evidence of “foreign powers” being behind the opposition’s no-confidence move to oust his government – public, Express Tribune reported.

IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah said in the court order that he hoped the prime minister will not make public any information or act in breach of the Official Secrets Act, 1923 nor the oath taken by him under the Constitution”.

Since Khan’s revelations, many questions are being asked including whether the letter was written by any country or was an internal assessment shared by one of the foreign diplomatic missions of Pakistan. Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the “threat letter” was also shared with the country’s military leadership.

But relevant quarters have revealed that they had “no knowledge” of any such plot and neither did they see any evidence. Earlier in the day, Imran Khan had said that he will show the letter to senior journalists and government allies. However, the idea was later dropped.
