EX-PM to face arrest incase of non-cooperation: Sanaullah

Rana Sanaullah

ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah on Thursday stated that the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) might arrest former prime minister Imran Khan if he fails to cooperate with their investigation into the cypher.

The minister’s warning comes a day after Imran’s ex-principal secretary — in an alleged confession that surfaced on Wednesday — accused his former boss of using a cypher from Pakistan’s mission in the US to gain political mileage and build an “anti-establishment narrative” on the back of the “confidential” document.

The FIA issued a notice to Imran, asking him to appear before the bureau in Islamabad on July 25 in connection with the cypher probe.

Today, the interior minister provided an update on the FIA investigation, issuing a reminder to the former premier to be prepared to face the law.

“The FIA has summoned the PTI chairman in the cypher investigation. If he does not cooperate during the inquiry stage, he could face possible arrest. Following the investigation, the FIA will make recommendations based on evidence regarding those who are complicit and against whom criminal cases should be filed,” the minister stated on Twitter.
