PM House debugged again, waiters restricted to prevent leaks

ISLAMABAD: A high-powered committee constituted to probe into the leak of informal conversations from the Prime Minister House is said to have combed and debugged the entire premises.

According to Dawn news, sources told that, “they have conducted a thorough inspection of the building.” The team was also monitoring mobile phone data and laptops of employees and officers of the PM House and Office.

Following a series of audio leaks over the last week, a new standard operating procedure (SOP) has been implemented at the PM House under which no staff and officer was allowed to take their mobile phone inside the building.

“The phones are collected at the entrance and retur­ned after office hours,” the source added.

On the other hand, a new cyber security department is being formed at the PM House to be headed by a director general. Waiters and low-ranked staff there were under a strict watch and their access to Prime Minister Sharif has been restricted.

Earlier on Wednesday, the NSC had constituted a high-powered committee to probe into the leak of informal conversations from the PM House and take precautionary measures to prevent such a national security breach from top government offices in the future.

The team, headed by Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah, comprised officials from the Inter-Services Intelligence and Intelligence Bureau.
