ISLAMABAD: Interior Ministry says action on orders of the Prime Minister on recommendations of Dawn Leaks Inquiry Committee has already been completed and the issue stands settled.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, it said there is need to develop a Code of Conduct for the Print Media especially when dealing with issues relating to security of Pakistan.
The Inquiry Committee recommended that the role of Daily Dawn, Zafar Abbas and Cyrill Almeida in the case may be referred to All Pakistan Newspapers Society (APNS) with a direction to take disciplinary action against them.
The statement said the action already taken by the Federal Government against Senator Pervaiz Rashid is endorsed.
