The federal government has decided to constitute an inquiry commission to probe the alleged “foreign conspiracy”, which former premier Imran Khan had been claiming was behind the removal of his government.
Addressing a news conference in Islamabad on Thursday, Federal Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb maintained that the commission would “fairly decide that the narrative of a foreign conspiracy was all a drama and the real character behind it was Imran Khan”.
“These allegations are an attempt to cause irreparable damage to our country,” she added.
The minister warned that if the commission found out that the allegations were false, the people who leveled them would be dealt with, as per the law.
Marriyum claimed that the allegations were aimed at covering up the corruption of Farah Khan alias Gogi, a close friend of Imran’s wife Bushra Bibi.
The minister added that the terms of reference of the commission would be presented before the cabinet for approval in its next meeting. The head of the commission would be a person whose credibility could not be challenged by anyone, she added.
