ISLAMABAD, July 13: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Pervez Rasheed denied on Saturday media reports that the Abbottabad Commission report had gone missing from the Prime Minister’s Office.

The original report was in possession of the government and no unauthorised person could have access to the document, he said. “The report has neither disappeared nor got leaked from the PM Office.”

He said the media reports and comments on the commission’s findings were based on an unauthentic, incomplete and distorted version of the report.

Answering a question, he said a former prime minister had set up a committee on Feb 1 to decide whether the report should be released completely or partially, or not at all.

The committee was headed by the then law minister and included the foreign and defence ministers.

The previous government’s tenure ended on March 16 and the findings of the committee could not be finalised by that date. The minister said the government was looking into the matter and would take a decision about releasing or not releasing the report “in national interest”.

Mr Rashid urged the media to wait for the release of the authentic version before making any analysis or judgement.—APP
