FIA terms alleged video ‘fake’

F.P. Report

ISLAMABAD: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Saturday declared the alleged “obscene video” of PTI leader Senator Azam Khan Swati circulating on the internet as “fake”. The FIA, in its press release, stated that the video was analysed forensically as per international forensic analysis standards and found to be fake.

The agency shared that the said video was made using “deep fake tools to create misunderstanding and defame the Honourable Senator”. “Initial forensic analysis revealed that the video has been edited and different video clips have been joined with defaced faces. Further analysis, revealed that faces have been swapped in the images using photoshop,” FIA stated in its statement.

The agency further shared that the concerns by Swati warrant a proper investigation and requested the senator to formally register a complaint with FIA. Later on, Chairman Senate Muhammad Sadiq Sanjrani on Saturday announced to form a parliamentary committee to examine Senator Azam Swati’s leaked video issue and then compile a report.

In a statement, he said, members of all the political parties in the Senate would be part of the parliamentary committee. He said the committee would prepare the report and present it before the House. The chairman said the issue of the video leak of Azam Swati was “shocking”. “Senator Azam Swati is like my elder brother; I have family relations with him,” Sanjrani said.
