The Ministry of Law and Justice on Tuesday issued a notification to conduct the jail trial of PTI Chief Imran Khan in the £190 million Al-Qadir Trust case.
According to the notification, the accountability court will hold a jail trial of the former minister inside Adiala jail.
The ministry issued the notification after the federal government gave a nod to the jail trial of the PTI chief.
A day earlier, a team of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) arrived at the Adiala jail and arrested Khan inside the jail. He is now in the custody of the NAB court while in the prison facility.
Judge Mohammad Bashir conducted the hearing on the two cases where the anti-graft body had filed an application seeking Khan’s arrest warrants.
A two-member bench of Justice Mian Gul Hassan Aurangzeb and Justice Saman Raffat announced the decision on Tuesday. The decision was announced while a hearing of the cypher trial was underway in Adiala Jail.
