On Wednesday, a lawyer filed a petition with the Supreme Court, seeking that the court order a comprehensive investigation into the “threat letter” incident.
The Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, had displayed a letter at a public meeting in Islamabad on Sunday, alleging it was evidence of a foreign conspiracy to destabilize his government.
Advocate Zulfiqar Bhutta submitted a petition to the Supreme Court, pleading with the court to intervene in order to alleviate public worry about the situation. He pleaded with the court to issue orders directing the authorities to conduct an investigation into the incident.
After first stating that the ‘threat letter’ could not be disclosed publicly due to the nature of foreign policy, Prime Minister Khan later clarified that his administration had volunteered to share it with the Chief Justice.
The threat letter, according to the premier, was received on March 7, just one day before the no-trust motion was tabled in the House of Parliaments.
