Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry said on Friday that an inquiry commission will be formed under Lt General (retd) Tariq Khan to probe the threat letter received by Prime Minister Imran Khan by a foreign power looking to interfere in Pakistan’s foreign policy.
Talking to media following the Federal Cabinet meeting, the minister confirmed that the inquiry commission will be headed by Lt General (retd) Tariq Khan. He said that the commission would show that the “threat letter” exists, after the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif claimed it was fake.
Chaudhry told the media that the commission would present its report within 90 days after it investigates how many dissident MPs were in contact with the foreign power. “We have evidence of eight dissident MPAs being in contact with foreign dignitaries,” said the minister. “The commission will look at a connection between local handlers and regime change.” he added.
It is pertinent to mention that the commission was formed after the Supreme Court ruled that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s move to dissolve the National Assembly was unconstitutional and ordered lawmakers to return and hold the no-confidence motion on 9th April 2022.
“The advice tendered by the Prime Minister on or about 03.04.2022 to the President to dissolve the Assembly was contrary to the Constitution and of no legal effect,” said Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial after a unanimous verdict was reached by the apex court’s five-member larger bench.
