PTI Reiterates Calls For An Inquiry As Audio Leaks Keep Coming
April 23, 2023 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News
The PTI reiterated its requests for an inquiry into these clips on Sunday and urged the Supreme Court to take note of the leaks as audio tapes purporting to show private telephone conversations of prominent figures continue to surface.
Recently, a number of audio leaks on social media have appeared that include important members of the government and opposition, such as Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, PTI Chairman Imran Khan, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz, and others.
The tapes, which appeared to show casual discussions, have caused significant worries about the security of government buildings, especially the Prime Minister’s Office.
The release of audio leaks was described by PM Shehbaz as a “very serious lapse” and a high-level committee was to be established to look into the situation.
The PTI, on the other hand, has submitted a plea to the SC asking for an investigation into the audios. The former prime minister Imran Khan also requested “enforcement” of the public’s basic rights in a letter to the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Umar Ata Bandial, and other SC judges, including Article 14 of the Constitution (the fundamental right to privacy).
An audio tape that supposedly included the wife of a PTI lawyer and the mother-in-law of a prominent SC judge first surfaced on social media earlier today. The women were heard discussing a well-known case that the supreme court is now hearing on the recordings.
A high-level committee was to be constituted to investigate what PM Shehbaz called a “very serious lapse” in the dissemination of audio leaks.
Fawad Chaudhry, a leader of the PTI and a former minister, said that his party has repeatedly pushed the SC to look into the series of leaks, describing them as “disastrous.”
We constantly asked the Supreme Court to look into this series when audio recordings from the Prime Minister’s Office and Prime Minister’s House were made public, he tweeted. “How will anyone else in the country be safe if the prime minister’s office is not secure and audios are being recorded there?”
Fawad mentioned PTI’s suit over the audio leaks and stated that even after all these months, a hearing date had not been set.
He added that “such illegal phone tapping is punishable by up to three years in prison under the fair trial law,” and that “now, judges, politicians, civil servants, and even housewives are becoming victims of this third-class thinking and no one can do anything about it.”
Shireen Mazari, a former minister for human rights, claimed that audio leaks of people’s private conversations demonstrated the “depravity, desperation, and insanity the deep state and its puppet PDM regime are delving into with impunity.”
