Pervaiz Rashid was scapegoat for Dawn Leaks 1, says Arif Alvi

May 19, 2018








PTI representative Dr Arif Alvi said that Pervaiz Rashid was made the scapegoat for Dawn Leaks 1. He said that Maryam Nawaz’s name had been substituted with Rashid’s to save her.

Alvi was referring to the Dawn Leaks controversy in which a report published by journalist Cyril Almeida revealed details of an alleged national security meeting.

“Nawaz Sharif has been lying to the nation since the past 10 months or so,” he said. “I have been saying since the past few months that Dawn Leaks was not given a fair trial. Something is fishy about it since day one.”

Dr Arif Alvi said that it was wrong to say that it was a leak. He said that the wrong information had been spread deliberately to malign Pakistan Army
