Govt to carry out forensic audit of Tarin’s leaked audios


The federal government has decided to conduct a forensic audit of former finance minister and PTI leader Shaukat Tarin’s leaked conversations with the finance ministers of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab over Pakistan’s deal with IMF.

Speaking to the media in Islamabad on Wednesday, Law Minister Senator Azam Nazir Tarar said that all the members take an oath while going to the parliament that they will protect the country’s interest. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Finance Minister Taimur Jhagra by writing a letter to the IMF may have violated his oath, he added.

The minister said that Shaukat Tarin was not expected to put politics before the state. “This act falls under the category of rebellion against the state.”

The two leaked audio clips of the former finance minister have been making headlines lately, in which Tarin can be heard instructing party ministers in K-P and Punjab.
