ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Pervez Rashid said on Tuesday that the report of Abbottabad Commission that was leaked to a foreign media outlet would be investigated.

Talking to the media, the information minister said they will start by ascertaining if the leaked report is factual to begin with.

The people responsible for the leakage will be held accountable, he said.

On Monday, Al Jazeera had released a leaked report by the Pakistan commission formed to probe the Osama bin Laden raid, carried out by US.

The independent commission’s report, which had been formally handed over to the government earlier in the year, had not been released to the public.

It had revealed a scathing assessment of the Pakistani government and the security structures.

The report was buried by the government and never made public, until Al Jazeera got hold of it and released it online.

Soon after the report's online release, there were reports that it was actively being blocked.

@Ahsan: "Please set up a commission!!" . Please set up a commission, then bury their findings. If some one else digs it up and publishes it. Then it is time to set up another commission, ad infinitum......
