ISLAMABAD: The senior Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Dr Shireen Mazari Saturday accused the United States embassy in Islamabad of “tracking” journalists and her party leadership.
In a statement on twitter, she said that “US Embassy tracking journos [journalists] and PTI.”
Giving details, she said that a senior journalist from a leading English daily made a telephone call to her and discussed the cypher issue on Thursday evening.
Mazari claimed that the very next morning, the journalist received a telephone call from the US embassy and a person named Laeeq asked him if he was doing a story on the cypher as he had discussed the matter with the PTI leaders. “So now we have US emb [embassy] listening in to journos [journalist] &/or our cells,” she tweeted.
Mazari questioned if the US has been given official spying access by “the conspirators of the US regime change conspiracy - those who themselves have this intrusive wherewithal.”
Taking a jibe at the coalition government, she said, “Subservience to the US is on once again!”
