Pak PM removes Tariq Fatemi following inquiry into Dawn story

Srinagar: The Pak Prime Minister’s Office on Saturday issued directives to remove Syed Tareq Fatemi, special assistant to the prime minister on foreign affairs, from his post for his alleged role in ‘Dawn leaks’, adding that a notification in this regard will be issued shortly, DawnNews reported.
The directives came after an inquiry committee probing a story published by Dawn on October 6, 2016 submitted its findings, along with their recommendations, to PM Nawaz Sharif reportedly on Wednesday, April 26, 2017.
The government had formed a committee in November last year to probe the story, which reported the details of a high-level civil-military meeting discussing the issue of banned outfits operating in Pakistan.
The Pak Prime Minister’s Office had initially rejected the story, but the military had allegedly mounted pressure to demand a probe into the matter to determine those involved in disclosing the details of the meeting.
