ISLAMABAD: Union Home Minister Rana Sanaullah on Friday agreed to open an investigation by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) into the alleged audio leak of former Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Parvez Elahi.
The agency began forensic testing of the leak during the first phase of the investigation. The test report will be communicated to the Home Office and if the tapes are found to be originals, proceedings will be launched against Mr Elahi.
Earlier, Mr Sanaullah called on Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial to take note of the alleged audio. Speaking to the media in Islamabad, he demanded forensic testing of Mr Elahi’s alleged leaked tapes in which he spoke of “managing the court”.
He said if the former Punjab premier was found guilty after forensic examination, the matter should be referred to the judicial committee. “The FIA was tasked with apprehending Mr Elahi following a forensic audit of the audio conversation,” he added.
