ISLAMABAD: US blogger Cynthia Richie moved the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday in a bid to stop the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) from registering a case against her.
In her petition, Ritchie had said that the FIA should be stopped from filing a case against her as she had not committed any crime.
On Monday, the Additional District and Sessions Judge (ASJ) Jahangir Awan had directed the FIA to register a case against Ritchie, who has levelled harassment allegations against the PPP leadership after a public spat with the party.
The petitioner, PPP Islamabad President Shakeel Abbasi on Saturday had filed a petition stating that Ritchie had made baseless allegations against ex-prime minister Benazir Bhutto and a case should be registered against her. In its two-page verdict, the court had said the US blogger had not denied that she created this tweet on social media.
