The federal cabinet on Tuesday has approved the formation of an inquiry commission to investigate the Broadsheet scandal.

According to the details, the decision has been taken during the cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan in Islamabad.

The federal cabinet held a detailed discussion on the Broadsheet scandal and approved the formation of a probing commission instead of a committee.

During the meeting, it was decided that former Supreme Court judge, Justice (retd) Sheikh Azmat Saeed will head the commission that will carry out a comprehensive investigation into the Broadsheet scandal.

It is important to mention that opposition parties, especially PML-N and PPP, had raised strong objections against the appointment of former SC justice as the chairman of investigating team citing a conflict of interest.

The federal cabinet, earlier this month, had decided to hold a thorough investigation into the Broadsheet scandal in order to expose the elements involved in looting the national wealth, citing sources.
