Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah confirmed that various investigations were underway against former director general of the Inter-Services of Intelligence (ISI), Lt Gen (ret) Faiz Hameed.
While speaking to private media, Rana Sanaullah also backed PML-N Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz’s demand for a court-martial of Lt Gen Hameed.
He asked who gave the ex-ISI chief the mandate to appoint a new chief justice (of the Islamabad High Court).
“If Faiz Hameed was involved in such matters, then he really damaged the institution and the country,” Rana Sanaullah stated.
Commenting on the case of Justice (retd) Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui, the minister said the IHC judge was knocked out of the high court on technical grounds, and that his allegations against Faiz Hameed should have been investigated.
He maintained that the Supreme Judicial Council should have investigated the issue.
Rana Sanaullah further disclosed that various investigations of financial irregularities were going on against the former ISI chief’s brothers also.
The former spy master’s brothers could not do anything in their personal capacities, and as per the facts that have come to light, Hameed used to operate himself mostly, the minister added.
