The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Friday moved the Lahore High Court seeking the formation of a judicial commission to probe the audio leaks.
PTI leader and former Punjab Health Minister Jasmin Rasheed filed a plea with the LHC through her lawyer Rana Mudasir. The Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Ministry of Defense and others are accused in the case.
The plea alleged that the audio recordings of PTI’s senior leadership were being leaked, which was a clear violation of fundamental rights.
The LHC was asked to set up a judicial commission comprising senior judges to look into the issue of audio leaks and pass orders prohibiting the media from airing audio leaks of PTI leaders.
Earlier, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan wrote a detailed letter to all Supreme Court judges including the Chief Justice of Pakistan on the issue of audio and video leaks.
In the detailed letter, former Prime Minister Imran Khan asked the SC to immediately hear the constitutional petition filed in October last year for hearing and steps should be taken for protection under Article 14.
In his letter, Imran Khan also raised the eight most important questions before the Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Umar Atta Bandial and other judges.
