Abdul Wasay : Suspect in smear campaign against CJP Faez Isa arrested

Law enforcement agencies in Islamabad have made a significant breakthrough in a case involving a malicious and threatening social media campaign against Chief Justice of Pakistan Qazi Faez Isa. The suspect, Abdul Wasay, was arrested for allegedly misusing the platform ‘X’ (formerly Twitter) to malign and issue death threats to the Chief Justice.

**Suspect Arrested for Social Media Campaign**

Abdul Wasay is believed to have played a key role in orchestrating a social media campaign against Justice Qazi Faez Isa. The investigation is ongoing to identify other individuals involved in the campaign against the Chief Justice.

**Formation of Joint Investigation Team**

In response to the incident, the caretaker government formed a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to look into the matter. The JIT, consisting of representatives from various agencies, will investigate the malicious social media campaign and bring the culprits to justice.

**Verdict Impact on PTI**

The arrest comes after a recent Supreme Court verdict that upheld a decision by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to strip the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party of its iconic symbol, the ‘bat’. As a result, PTI candidates will now be running independently with different electoral symbols, losing the right to reserved seats for women and minorities.

**Action by Caretaker Government**

The caretaker government has directed the JIT to submit a preliminary report within 15 days, highlighting the seriousness of the issue. The team will also recommend measures to prevent similar incidents in the future.

**Conclusion**

The arrest of Abdul Wasay marks a significant step in addressing the misuse of social media platforms for threatening and defamatory purposes. The government’s swift action underscores its commitment to upholding the rule of law and protecting the integrity of the judiciary.
