ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday maintained its stay order till March 5, on the possible extradition of a citizen to the US and sought details of the recovery memo for the accused from the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

Justice Mohsin Akhter Kiyani of the IHC resumed hearing on a petition filed by a citizen, Haroon, challenging the possible extradition of his son, Talha Haroon, to the US. The counsel stated that a case was registered against Talha in the US but no evidence was provided regarding the allegations.

Justice Kiyani asked the FIA whether it had conducted the forensic analysis of the accused’s mobile phone and laptop. The FIA responded that no such practice was done as there were red warrants issued against the accused.

The court sought the details of recovery memo of Talha Haroon from the FIA and adjourned the case till March 5, and also maintained its stay order till next hearing.

In a separate case, the Employees Union of the state-run Pakistan Television, has challenged the appointment of managing director (MD). The union requests the court to declare the appointment of the acting MD and the board of directors as null and void.
