Former federal minister Faisal Vawda on Wednesday accused former director-general (DG) of the Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) Lieutenant-General (retd) Faiz Hameed of being the “architect, mastermind and biggest beneficiary” of the Al-Qadir Trust case.
The case alleges that the former premier and his wife obtained billions of rupees and land worth hundreds of kanals from Bahria Town Ltd for legalising Rs50 billion, which was later identified and returned to the country by the UK during the tenure of the PTI government. The case also involves the role of former accountability czar Shahzad Akbar in the repatriation of the Rs50bn.
Talking to the media in Islamabad today, Vawda, a former PTI leader, said many names were being taken in the media pertaining to the case, including Akbar, Imran and others’.
“But one name which everyone has forgotten is that of the architect and designer of all this, who benefitted the most from this corruption scheme. His name is Faiz Hameed and you know he was the former DG ISI.”
