UK prosecution rejects Altaf Hussain’s plea of being unfit to stand terror trial

LONDON: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s (MQM) founder Altaf Hussain’s application stating that he is “physically and mentally unfit to stand terrorism trial in January 2022” has been rejected by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

The MQM leader had applied a month ago to the CPS to abort the upcoming terrorism trial altogether, claiming that he was suffering from several physical and mental illnesses to stand trial in January 2022 at the UK’s Kingston Crown Court for allegedly using hate speech and encouraging an act of terrorism in Pakistan in August 2016.

The speech had aroused the MQM workers into taking the law into their hands and the unravelling of the MQM into two parts known as MQM-Pakistan and MQM-London.
