SC turns down plea of PTI for an in-camera hearing on Lettergate issue

Legal

The Supreme Court has turned down the plea of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf for an in-camera hearing on the Lettergate issue.

The PTI’s counsel Babar Awan has asked the five-member larger SC bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial, whether an in-camera hearing is possible as his client wanted to keep the Foreign Office’s briefing before the court.

The CJP, however, rejected Awan’s request, observing that the court is not currently asking for the letter.
