The preliminary inquiry report of the case had been submitted to Finance Minister Ishaq Dar.

Ishaq Dar on Monday took notice of the case and said that Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) officials who divulged the information had committed serious errors and violated the Official Secrets Act.

Subsequently, the finance minister directed Tariq Pasha, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Revenue, to conduct an investigation into the matter and submit a report.

So this means 2 things

a. FBR's system is not secured, and date is not encrypted; data masking doesn't happen.
b. There will be no investigation on how BJ made those assets; much like Nawaz, and Maryam.

just make money, and screw everything else.

Incompetence is real in pak, nothing is secure. Anyine with enough money and links can get into your data (fbr, nadra cnic, etc).
I won’t be surprised if foreign embassies have links to these systems too.

Are the 2 men suspended or terminated ?? Lost their jobs??
