Judicial Commission Formed To Probe Audio Leaks
The federal government has formed a judicial commission to probe the audio leaks.

The senior-most judge of the Supreme Court, Justice Qazi Faiz Isa, will head the three-member commission to probe audio leaks.

Apart from Justice Qazi Faiz Isa, Naeem Akhtar Afghan from the Balochistan High Court and Chief Justice Islamabad High Court Amir Farooq are also included in the investigation commission.

The federal government has also issued a notification regarding the commission formed to investigate the audio leak.

"The Commission will be entitled to establish a secretariat and appoint a secretary for the inquiry at the cost of the Federal Government. The Attorney General for Pakistan shall assist the Commission and provide the Commission with all documents and material that it requires," the notification read.

The notification stated that "the Commission shall initiate the inquiry immediately after the notification of its constitution and shall conclude the inquiry and submit its report to the federal government in thirty days. However, if the Commission requires further time, the Federal Government shall grant it."

It is pertinent to mention here that audio leaks have sparked concern from the general public regarding the independence, impartiality, and uprightness of the chief justice and judges of the apex court.
