Fax machines ‘spied’ on Pakistan’s diplomatic offices

Fax machines ‘spied’ on Pakistan’s diplomatic offices
ISLAMABAD: A day after Rehman Malik’s revelations regarding phone tapping of Pakistani officials by ‘two embassies’, another spy scandal surfaced on Saturday this time involving fax machines used by the country in 2010.

According to our sources, the fax machines were installed at Pakistan’s ministry of foreign affairs and embassies across the globe and used to send out a copy of every fax to an unidentified location in 2010.

Those fax machines were gifted by a ‘friendly country’, they added.

Former interior minister Malik had revealed on Friday that cabinet meetings were also bugged during the tenure of the PPP government besides phone tapping. Monitoring was so intense once that the cabinet meeting had to be postponed, he added.

According to Malik, along with his phones those of Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari were also tapped.
