A powerful committee will be formed, according to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, to look into audio leaks that purport to show the premier speaking with prominent government officials and Maryam Nawaz, the leader of the ruling party.
He stated at a news conference on Tuesday in Islamabad, “This is a very critical problem and these major security lapse and breach are a big question mark then who will be prepared to come to meet the prime minister [under fears of bugging].”
Any person will “consider a hundred times” before bringing up a delicate subject at the PM House.He continued, “I have taken note and am establishing a powerful committee to look into the situation.
PM Shehbaz stated Maryam Nawaz, who is also his niece, did not want any favours from him in relation to the import of her son-in-power law’s plant equipment from India in response to a question on one of the leaked audio clips.
Dr. Tauqeer informed him that half of Raheel, Maryam’s son-in-lawmachinery ,’s had previously been imported during the PTI’s administration and that the other half still remained.
“It’s a loss if the [import] of half the machinery is still outstanding. However, because this issue includes India, we didn’t think it was right to bring it up in the federal cabinet.
“This was not criminal in any way.”The prime minister claimed that, unlike his predecessor, he did not mention anything about “diamonds and jewellery” in reference to the supposed tape scandal involving PTI Chairman Imran Khan.
Additionally, he urged the media to draw attention to audio leaks that revealed “Imran and his cronies'” wrongdoing.
The declaration was made on September 29, a day after Prime Minister Shehbaz called a meeting of the National Security Committee (NSC) to address audio leaks.
The Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Intelligence Bureau (IB) had finished their initial investigation, and a report regarding the audio leaks would be brought before the NSC on Wednesday, according to comments made by Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah to a private news channel.
