ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) Thursday ordered the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to conduct forensics on the leaked audio of senior lawyer Latif Khosa and former Prime Minister Imran Khan’s wife Bushra Bibi.
According to the details, the IHC ordered an investigation on the case related to the Khosa-Bushra audio leak and enquired as to where the audio was released in the first place.
On November 30, a new audio leak allegedly featuring Bushra Bibi, wife of the former prime minister, and her lawyer Latif Khosa surfaced on social media, suggesting all is not well in the PTI founder’s family with him being behind bars.
The two were purportedly heard talking about ex-PM’s sisters complaining about Khosa’s alleged misbehavior with them about a case.
IHC Justice Babar Sattar heard Bushra Bibi’s plea against her alleged audio leak.
At the outset of the hearing, IHC questioned how private conversations of people are being leaked.
PEMRA should respond to how private conversations of people are being leaked on TV, Justice Babar Sattar enquired.
The judge of IHC asked who is recording the audio.
On which Latif Khosa replied that everyone knows who records the audios. Justice Babar added that they cannot proceed on the assumption.
Latif Khosa added that this is not only his problem, in fact it is the problem of the lawyers of the whole country. If a lawyer cannot talk freely with the client, how will the judicial system work?
Justice Babar Sattar inquired if the audio was launched on social media? On which Latif Khosa said that the audio was also broadcast by all the TV channels.
Justice Sattar continued that if it was first released on Twitter (X) or somewhere else? If the release platform is identified then it can be known who recorded it at the first hand.
Latif Khosa said PEMRA by the way shuts the screen even when saying someone’s name. Khosa added that nobody talks to him now stating that his phone is not safe.
IHC Justice Babar Sattar issued notices to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA), and Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to respond on the matter.
The IHC also ordered to forward a copy of the plea to the DG ISI and also sought a report from the institution on the alleged Khosa-Bushra audio leak.
Later, the hearing was adjourned until December 11.
