ISLAMABAD - The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) on Wednesday said that the Dawn leaks issue remains “unresolved”.

Speaking to journalists here, the PPP’s opposition leader in the National Assembly, Syed Khurshid Shah, said the “real culprits” needed to be punished.

“Unless they punish the real culprits, this [the solution] is a just an illusion. The issue remains,” he said.

Earlier, the interior ministry released recommendations of the Dawn leaks Inquiry Committee approved by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

The ministry said that the print media needed a “code of conduct” on the issues of country’s security.

Pakistan Army also withdrew its April 29 tweet, which rejected the government’s notification on the Dawn leaks.

Shah said that the government should not hide away from the realities.

“They should face the facts,” he added.
