Govt reveals facilities provided to Imran Khan at Adiala jail

"If this Court may deem appropriate and necessary, it may appoint a judicial officer in the form of a commission to verify the facts as submitted before this Court," the federal government maintained.

The federal government on Thursday revealed the facilities provided to Imran Khan at Adiala jail.

The government submitted the evidence during the hearing of appeals challenging NAB law amendments at the Supreme Court following Imran Khan’s claims of “solitary confinement” and not receiving the provisions.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan imprisoned at Rawalpindi’s Adiala jail told the Supreme Court during a hearing of the NAB law amendments case that he was being kept in solitary confinement.

“They (jail authorities) do not let me meet my legal team. I am being kept in solitary confinement here. I neither have any material nor a library to prepare for the case,” Imran Khan said before Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa during the hearing.

To set the record straight, the federal government Thursday submitted the details of the facilities including photographs of the facilities to the court.

In the detailed document submitted to the court, the government also listed the names of all the people who have visited PTI founder Imran Khan at the Adiala Jail so far.

“If this Court may deem appropriate and necessary, it may appoint a judicial officer in the form of a commission to verify the facts as submitted before this Court,” the federal government maintained.

“It is, therefore, respectfully prayed that the instant application be allowed and the additional documents be placed before this Court for the record,” the government added.
