US agency says receiving threats over evaluation of Nisar’s alleged audio clip


ISLAMABAD:

Garret Discovery, a US agency that examined an alleged tape of former chief justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar, has claimed it obtained a threatening name over its work to authenticate the audiotape.

“Today we received a call saying our lives are in danger and the same person said he is going to file in court against us for our work authenticating a file for Fact Focus. 1000+ calls and chat requests on our site. Threatening our team to obtain a different result is unethical,” it stated by way of Twitter on Wednesday.

However, the agency made no point out of the place the decision was made out of.

In the audio clip, a voice, purportedly of the previous chief justice, could be heard saying: “Let me be a little blunt about it. Unfortunately, here it is the institutions that dictate judgements. In this case, we will have to punish Mian sahab (Nawaz Sharif). [I] have been told ‘we have to bring Khan sahab (Imran Khan) [into power].'”
