Viral news of a white woman being involved in the 9 May attack is false

The image being attributed to such a woman is of model caught for smuggling drugs


Claim:  The Pakistani intelligence agency has traced a call between a PTI and American leaders in which they discussed a foreign woman who was involved in the 9 May unrest and was kept hidden at the US embassy, brainwashed with PTI propaganda and then handed over to the authorities. Now, as a  part of the plan, she will falsely report being sexually assaulted inside the jail. This will be used as political leverage against Pakistan’s security forces. The photograph of this woman has been shared as well.

Fact: This photograph is of a Czech model named Tereza Hluskova who was caught smuggling drugs by the Punjab police in March 2023.

On 28 May 2023, an image went viral on Twitter with the following caption:

پاکستانی خفیہ ایجنسی عمران خان اور امریکی سی آئی اے کی خفیہ منصوبہ بندی بے نقاب کرنے میں کامیاب


نیازی اور امریکہ گٹھ جوڑ سامنے لانے میں کامیاب ہوگیا ہے،، ، پاکستان کی خفیہ ایجنسی نے امریکی حکام اور پی ٹی آئی رہنماؤں کی ایک کال ٹریس کی ہے، جس میں ایک غیرملکی خاتون جو 9 مئ واقعی میں شامل ہے، جسے امریکی سفارت خانے میں پناہ دی گئ، اور اسے برین واش کرکے خود پاکستانی حکام کے

حوالے کیا گیا۔ جسے گرفتار کرکے جیل بھیج دیا گیا ہے، اب وہ خاتون ضمانت پر باہر آکر خود پر ریپ کا الزام لگائے گی،، جسے امریکہ کی مدد سے عالمی میڈیا میں اچالا جائے گا۔ اور پاکستان میں یوتھیا برگیڈ سوشل میڈیا پر اسے مظلوم ظاہر کرکے پاکستانی سیکیورٹی فورسز کو دباؤ میں لانے کی کوشش

کرے گی،، یہی وہ سرپرائز تھا۔ جو عمران خان دینا چاہتا تھا۔ یعنی امریکہ کی ایماں پر امریکی پاسپورٹ ہولڈر خاتون کے زریعے عمران خان پاکستان کو دنیا میں بدنام کرے گا۔ اب اپ بتائیں عورت کارڈ کون استعمال کررہا ہے ،، ؟ اور امریکی ایجنٹ کون ہے، ؟؟؟

[Translation: Pakistani intelligence agency succeeded in exposing the secret planning of Imran Khan and American CIA #ایک_تھی_پی_ٹی_آئی
The link between Niazi and the US has been revealed, Pakistan’s intelligence agency has traced a call between US officials and PTI leaders, discussing a foreign woman who was actually involved in the May 9 incident. She was given asylum in the US embassy and brainwashed before being handed over to the Pakistani authorities. Who has been arrested and sent to jail, now the woman will come out on bail and accuse herself of rape, this information will be released in the international media with the help of America. And the Youthia Brigade in Pakistan will try to put pressure on the Pakistani security forces by portraying it as oppressed on social media.

This was the surprise that Imran Khan wanted to give. That is, Imran Khan will defame Pakistan in the world through the American passport holder woman on the trust of America. Now tell me, who is using the woman card? And who is the American agent ???]

Fact or Fiction?

Through reverse image searches, we found that this image was used by several websites reporting the news of Czech model Tereza Hluskova’s arrest by the Punjab police for drug trafficking in Pakistan in 2019 and the news of her acquittal in 2021.

This news was initially covered by AFP Prague in November 2021 and published on Alarabiya News. According to this article, the model Tereza Hluskova, aged 25, was sentenced to eight years and eight months in prison for trafficking nine kilograms of heroin to Lahore in January 2018. Similar articles were also published by The Mirror UK, The US Sun, and Daily Nation Pakistan in March 2023.

Dawn also published an article covering the model’s initial arrest in March 2019 which elaborated that the model was also imposed a fine of Rs 113,000. 

In addition to this, the Punjab Police’s official Twitter handle replied to the claim, clarifying that this image is being used out of context. The tweet said: 

یہ کیس پاکستانی میڈیا پر کئی دن چلتا رہا ہے ۔غیر ملکی ماڈل ٹریزا  کو منشیات سمگلنگ کیس میں گرفتار کیا گیا تھا اور عدالت نے 8 سال قید و جرمانہ کی سزا سنائی تھی ۔ سوشل میڈیا پر پراپگنڈہ اور خوف و ہراس پھیلانے والوں کے خلاف سائبر کرائم ایکٹ کے تحت کاروائی کی جا رہی ہے اس لیے بنا تصدیق کوئی ایسی پوسٹ اپ  لوڈ  نہ کریں جو عوام میں خوف و پریشانی کا باعث بنے.

[Translation: This case has been running on Pakistani media for several days. Foreign model Tereza was arrested in a drug smuggling case and the court sentenced her to 8 years imprisonment and fine. Actions are being taken against those who spread propaganda and fear on social media under the Cybercrime Act, so do not upload any post without verification that will cause fear and anxiety among the public.]


The tweet was viewed 159,500 times and received more than 3,192 interactions on Twitter.

Conclusion: Viral image of a foreign woman alleged to be involved in the 9 May riots and protests is actually Czech model Tereza Hluskova, who was arrested for smuggling drugs in 2019.
