Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s audio leaks
Since September, several political figures have been the target of leaked audios, including Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif. Two audios of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif were leaked in September and October of this year.
In the first audio, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif could be heard talking to a government official that Maryam Nawaz Sharif had asked him to facilitate her son-in-law Raheel with the import of machinery for a power plant, from India.
Soon after, another audio was released in which the prime minister apparently talks about appointing Special Assistants to PM with an unknown person.

During the past months, several audios, allegedly featuring government officials and PTI leaders discussing important matters at the PM House, had surfaced on social media after which questions were raised on the security of the government’s highest office.
Former PM Imran Khan had also demanded a JIT to investigate the issue of bugging the PM House. Interior Minister Rana Sanauallah said the culprits behind the audio leaks had been identified. The government also upgraded cyber security SOPs at the PM House and issued new directives to stop this in the future.
