Imran Khan approaches SC to establish JIT for investigating PMO audio leaks

Former prime minister Imran Khan asked the Supreme Court to establish a joint investigation team (JIT) or judicial committee to look into the Prime Minister House audio leaks.

On Thursday, the PTI chairman urged the court to “declare that the impugned actions, in particular, the illegal surveillance of the PMO and PMH and the release of the surveillance data, especially through the Audio Leaks, are unconstitutional and in violation of the law”.

Imran Khan has asked the top court to oversee the audio leak investigations so that the “illegal surveillance is put to an end permanently”.

Additionally, he wants the audio files to be located by the probe, acquired, secured, and then, if necessary, destroyed.

The former prime minister has also appealed to the Supreme Court to prosecute the individuals responsible for the audio leaks.

The PTI chairman urged that “the government and all pertinent agencies and authorities take all necessary steps to prevent the release, publication, dissemination, sharing, broadcast, and spread of any surveillance data, including the continued use of the audio leaks.”

The former premier has nominated the Interior, Defence, IT, and Information Ministries, along with PEMRA, Intelligence Bureau, and FIA as respondents in the petition.

The PTI chairman had previously stated his intentions to file a case with the Supreme Court regarding audio leaks and requested the creation of a JIT to gauge which intelligence agency was responsible for “bugging” the PM House and Office.
