 Ex-ISI Chief Under Probe For Corruption

Pakistan’s former spy chief retired Lt Gen. Faiz Hamid is being investigated for alleged corruption, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah has said, while his party leader Maryam Nawaz has called for his court martial over his alleged role in bringing down her father’s government and implicating both her and Nawaz Sharif in NAB cases. “I had spoken against Gen. Hamid in court when he was the sitting ISI chief for his alleged involvement in getting me and Nawaz Sharif punished. I had evidence against him,” she said, referring to a former Islamabad High Court judge’s claims that the ISI tried to prevail on him to issue a verdict of their liking. Sanaullah said a probe would also cover Hamid’s disproportionate assets as well as that of his brother.
