In a groundbreaking development, the judicial commission assigned to investigate a series of leaked audio clips implicating members of the judiciary and their family members has announced its decision to make the proceedings public. Led by Supreme Court senior puisne judge Qazi Faez Isa, the three-member commission has begun its investigation, with a scheduled meeting on Saturday to discuss the matter further.
Media reports have indicated that the commission retains the option to review applications for closed-door proceedings, particularly when handling sensitive matters. Justice Faez Isa highlighted that if the commission receives any such requests, it may even consider visiting Lahore, as two of the individuals mentioned in the audio clips are elderly women.
Furthermore, the commission has encouraged the public to come forward with information regarding the audio leaks. However, it emphasized that information from unidentified sources will not be included in the official proceedings, ensuring a fair and transparent investigation.
Meanwhile, the high-powered commission has directed the current government to furnish transcripts of all the leaked audio clips, providing crucial evidence for their inquiry.
During today’s proceedings, Justice Isa reiterated that the purpose of the commission is solely to uncover the truth and gather all relevant facts. It clarified that the commission will not take any action against any judge involved, but rather focus on establishing a comprehensive understanding of the situation.
The decision to make the proceedings public marks a significant step towards transparency in a case that has captured public attention. By unveiling the truth behind the leaked audio scandal, the judicial commission aims to restore trust in the judiciary and maintain the integrity of the legal system.
