Government takes precautions to secure Prime Minister’s Office: Minister of Justice


Justice Minister Azam Nazeer Tarar insisted that state institutions had taken precautions to secure the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).

On Thursday, the Minister of Justice, at a press conference in Islamabad, said that we have changed some standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the PMO.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and his family were apparently overheard on several audio leaks that surfaced earlier this week.

In one of several audio leaks, Prime Minister Shehbaz told a government official that Maryam Nawaz was trying to import material from India for a power station at the request of her son-in-law Raheel.

The Minister of Justice said that our state institutions conducted an exercise to protect the Prime Minister’s Office.

In outlining the security precautions, Tarar mentioned that a few SOPs had been changed in light of the sensitive issues discussed at the Prime Minister’s house.

According to the Minister of Justice, there should be a framework that gives complete confidence that decisions made at the federal level are made in a secure environment.

Tarar said talks of a “cleansing process” were underway and the government was considering the next course of action.

He insisted that fundamental SOPs for “significant buildings” were already in place and that new instructions had been issued to ensure the effectiveness of security measures and prevent such intrusions in the future.
