Dawn Leaks: Federal government to issue new notification as per Army's desire

ISLAMABAD – Federal government has decided to redress the grievances of Pakistan Army over the issue of the Dawn Leaks that has suddenly deteriorated the civil military relations in Pakistan.

Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan called on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in Islamabad today (Friday) to take him into confidence on points mentioned in the new notification in connection with Dawn leaks issue. 

According to sources, the government has decided to address reservations of the military leadership and a fresh notification is expected to be released soon.

Last week, the military rejected the federal government’s notification on Dawn leaks inquiry, stating that it is incomplete and not in line with the recommendations made by the inquiry board.

"Notification on Dawn Leak is incomplete and not in line with recommendations by the Inquiry Board. Notification is rejected," Director General, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor tweeted.

The tweet came minutes after the Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) government released a notification stating that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had approved the recommendations of the Dawn Leak inquiry committee. As per notification, the premier removed Tariq Fatemi as Advisor on Foreign Affairs and ordered action against Principal Information Officer Tehsin Rao.
