ISLAMABAD:

Authorities have established standard operating procedures (SOPs) for meeting former premier Imran Khan in Rawalpindi’s Adiala jail and have appointed three focal persons for coordination. 

The founding chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the jail superintendent have agreed on the SOPs governing meetings at Adiala.

The SOPs, duly signed by Imran and the jail official, also specify the appointment of three focal persons by the former PM to facilitate the meetings.

The designated focal persons for these meetings are Chairman PTI Barrister Gohar Ali Khan, Sher Afzal Marwat, and Barrister Umair Niazi. Each focal person is authorized to nominate two individuals for meetings within the jail.

Meetings will be scheduled twice weekly – on Tuesdays for family members and Thursdays for legal representatives and other visitors.

As per the SOPs, meetings with individuals under court orders will be contingent upon the approval of the PTI founder. According to jail reports, 10 individuals met with Imran on March 26 and 18 on March 28.

The two-week restriction on meeting prisoners, including Imran, in Adiala jail came to an end earlier this week on Wednesday.

Given the security concerns, the Punjab government issued a notification on March 12 banning visitations in Adiala jail for 14 days.
