A Lahore court has directed the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to file a case against Babar Azam on charges of blackmail and harassment according to a report in ESPNCricinfo.”This shows guilty form [sic] his part.” Judge Hamid Hussain on Thursday directed the FIA “to proceed further with respect to registration of the FIR against the culprits within the stipulated time following legal formalities”.

“The Honourable High Court in a connected case has already restrained the police from registering the FIR,” Azam’s legal counsel Barrister Haris Azmat said. “The instant order has been passed without issuing a notice to Babar in violation of his fundamental rights of fair trial as guaranteed in the constitution. The order is prima facie against the law and will be assailed soon.”
