Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Monday said that his party intends to approach courts over the matter of audio leaks and will seek the formation of a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to probe which intelligence agency is involved in the “bugging” of the Prime Minister House and Office.

Khan took to Twitter and said, “The Audio Leaks are a serious breach of national security as they call into question the entire security of the PMO, PMH. As PM my secure line at my residence was also bugged. We intend to go to Court to estab authenticity of Leaks & then form JIT to investigate which Intel agency is responsible for the bugging & who is leaking out the audios many of which are edited/doctored.” [sic]

“This is critical bec sensitive security issues are & have been illegally recorded & subsequently hacked, implying confidentiality of Pak’s national security has been exposed globally,” [sic] said Khan.



The comments made by the former premier in the purported audio suggested that it was recorded before the voting on the no-confidence motion was held against him.

Khan said that it is a critical matter as “sensitive security issues are and have been illegally recorded and subsequently hacked”, which implies that the confidentiality of the country’s national security has been “exposed” globally. 

The federal cabinet has already formed a committee to investigate the breach of security.
