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.

Regarding the mass quitting of PTI MNAs and MPAs from the party, Vawda said he had already informed Imran about “snakes” in the party, adding that many more would hold press conferences in the days to come and criticise the PTI chief for the events of May 9.
Vawda also strongly criticised President Dr Arif Alvi and accused him of being responsible for the current state of the party. “Arif Alvi sahib has a big role in [creating] these misunderstandings,” he added.
In March, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah had said that a probe was under way against the ex-ISI boss and his brother over alleged corruption and accumulating assets beyond means. However, he had said it would be premature to say anything further.
When it was pointed out that any probe into assets beyond means would fall in the domain of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), the law minister had said an investigation was already under way.
