Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Senior Vice President Fawad Chaudhary demanded impartial and thorough investigation into the audio leaks from the PM House containing conversations between the PM and the cabinet members, which, he said, a major security lapse and another tragic incident for the people of the country.
Addressing a press conference here on Monday, he said that it was a very serious issue and it must be investigated properly; however, surprisingly, neither the PM House issued a statement nor announced investigation on the matter hitherto. He lashed out the imported government for being unable to manage its affairs efficiently and demanded that action should be taken against Shehbaz Sharif for providing undue facilitation to procure machinery from India for Maryam Nawaz’s son-in-law on her request.
Fawad quoted a TV channel that the imported government was so scared that they were in talks with the hackers to purchase the data that was put on the dark web, demanding $345,000, who claimed to have more explosive audios, which are yet to be released.
Fawad stated that hackers even claimed that they had even conversations of Pakistan security agencies pertaining to the security related issues. He said that the breach suggested weak cybersecurity in the PM’s Office and that anything could be leaked as no conversation is safe there, adding that the 140-hour-long audio leak of the PM’s House has been available on internet since August 20, but no institution was aware of it.
