Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Vice President Maryam Nawaz has demanded an apology over the ‘tapping’ of her phone call with Pervaiz Rasheed.

The PML-N vice president said that the conversation was a private one and no one had the right to tap her phone and record that conversation.

She questioned why that voice clip was given to a television channel and why it was broadcasted.

The PML-N vice president added that she was not answerable for her personal conversation, with Rasheed or anyone else. She said that the voice clips accredited to her included her personal conversations and did not contain any conspiracies.

Earlier in the press conference, Maryam demanded that Prime Minister Imran Khan render his resignation and that actions be taken against him along with the members of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf over the report compiled by the Election Commission of Pakistan’s scrutiny committee.

She claimed the report confirmed that the party had received foreign funding, under-reported its funds and concealed dozens of its bank accounts while declaring only a handful.

The PML-N vice president demanded the formation of a joint investigation team requesting that the case be heard against the PM daily as “it was heard over false allegations against the Sharifs”.

A few days ago the Election Commission of Pakistan’s scrutiny committee revealed that the ruling PTI party hid a sum of Rs312 million during a period of four years between financial year 2009-2010 and financial year 2012-2013. Further details revealed that Rs145 million was under-reported in financial year 2012-2013.

The report came forth as the ECP resumed its hearing of the foreign funding case against the party, after a period of nearly nine months. The case has been unresolved since November 14, 2014.
