Imran Khan’s Lawyer Claims He is Kept in Poor Conditions in Attock Jail
Imran Khan, the Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), is facing difficult conditions in Attock jail, according to his lawyer. In a recent meeting with Khan on Monday, the lawyer expressed serious concerns regarding his client’s well-being.
The lawyer mentioned that Imran Khan is prepared to spend the rest of his life in prison, indicating his determination to stand by his principles. However, the lawyer raised alarm over the conditions in which the PTI chairman is being held.
One of the major issues highlighted by the lawyer is the deplorable state of the cell where Khan is currently lodged. He claimed that the cell is infested with flies and bugs, making it extremely unhygienic and uncomfortable for his client.
Imran Khan was arrested on August 5 on charges of corrupt practices. Subsequently, he was convicted and sentenced to three years in jail, along with a fine. Shortly after his arrest, Khan was transferred to Attock jail.
Khan’s lawyer further revealed that the prison authorities have provided him with a small room that includes an open washroom. Khan himself has also voiced his frustration, insisting that he should be permitted to meet his wife while serving his sentence.
To address the verdict, Imran Khan’s legal team plans to file an appeal against the trial court’s decision on Tuesday. Meanwhile, PTI has submitted a petition to the Islamabad High Court, requesting the transfer of their chairman to Adiala Jail. The party argues that due to Khan’s education, habits, and social and political status, he should be entitled to better facilities.
These claims by Imran Khan’s lawyer have sparked concerns among his supporters, who believe that his current conditions are unjust and degrading. They await the Islamabad High Court’s decision, hoping that it will provide relief to their leader.
As the situation unfolds, it remains to be seen how Imran Khan’s legal battle will progress and whether any improvements will be made to his living conditions in Attock jail. Poh Diaries will provide further updates on this ongoing matter.
