Former prime minister Imran Khan will face another setback as former army chief General (retired) Qamar Javed Bajwa is willing to appear before the court as a witness in the Cypher case, and he will reveal everything in his statement, sources said.
While speaking at a program on Naya Daur TV, senior analyst Muzamal Suharwardy said, citing sources, that Bajwa is willing to appear before the court if summoned, and for this, he has also sought permission from the General Headquarters (GHQ).
The analyst said US Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs Donald Lu and any other US diplomat cannot be summoned by any court in Pakistan because they have diplomatic immunity, adding that it is up to them whether they want to appear before the court or not.
While talking about Imran Khan’s statement that he saw the face of his wife Bushra Bibi for the first time at his Nikah ceremony, Suharwardy said that Khan is a liar, and everyone knows that.
The analyst said neither the establishment nor any political party is interested in talking to Imran Khan.
While responding to a question regarding the conflict between Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders Daniyal Aziz and Ahsan Iqbal, the analyst said that Daniyal has crossed the red line and resorted to criticizing the party, adding that Daniyal will have to apologize for his approach; otherwise, his party membership will be canceled.
He said that few people believe that Daniyal is doing all this as planned, as he wants to contest the upcoming general elections as an independent candidate.
To another question regarding the issuance of warrants against property tycoon Malik Riaz and his son Ali Riaz, Suharwardy said that soon red warrants will also be issued for the father and son, and they will leave Dubai and might shift to a country like Portugal to avoid detention.
The analyst said that a meeting was held between PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif and JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman. Both leaders agreed to seat adjustments in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
