Court directs FIA not to harass Waqar Zaka in crypto currency case


Ordering the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to issue a notice to TV host Waqar Zaka in order to summon him for questioning in the cryptocurrency case against him, the Sindh High Court (SHC) on Thursday extended the stay it had granted in the case.

Besides ordering the FIA not to harass Waqar Zaka, the court also directed the latter to cooperate with the FIA officials in the inquiry.

The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), on the occasion, submitted to the court a written reply in the case against TV host Waqar Zaka.Justice Muhammad Iqbal Kulhoro was in a state of disbelief when the FIA’s legal team told him that the TV host was harassing the Agency officials by uploading videos against them on social media. “How can the defendant harass the FIA officials,” Justice Kulhoro remarked.

The legal team went on to say that not only he was uploading videos against the FIA officials, but also against PM Khan and the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP).   Maulvi Iqbal, Counsel for Zaka, told the court that the Agency had not only raided his client’s home but was also harassing him.
