The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has rejected the decision to transfer the trial of Chairman Imran Khan to Attock Jail, a spokesperson said describing it as a dictatorial and unconstitutional move.
The party made a request to the Supreme Court to take immediate notice of the unconstitutional move.
It also appealed to local and international human rights organizations to raise their voices effectively against this illegal, unconstitutional and dictatorial move.
“The constitution gives every citizen the fundamental right to a fair trial. Like Tosha Khana, the basis of injustice has been laid in the cypher case too,” the spokesperson said.
He added that under Section 167, Chairman Imran Khan was remanded without fulfilling the basic legal requirement of appearing in court.
The PTI spokesperson continued: “Now a shameful attempt is being made to establish a new tradition of killing justice through a secret trial in the jail.
"We reject the ministry's approval to transfer the trial of Imran Khan to Attock Jail.
"The case should be conducted in an open court in the presence of media and lawyers.
"A secret trial or any verdict pronounced as a result of it will not be legal.
"Playing with law and justice should be stopped and the PTI chairman should not be subjected to unfair, illegal and discriminatory trial."
