‘ISI funded politicians to manipulate elections’
Islamabad: Former Pakistan chief of army staff General Mirza Aslam Beg has told the Supreme Court that former Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Lt General Asad Durrani allegedly disbursed millions of rupees among anti-PPP politicians to manipulate the 1990 general elections.
General Beg said the amount was placed in the ISI account, and the person having any knowledge of the accounts would be Durrani, or anyone else directed by him, adding that no misappropriation was ever reported to him, adding that the ISI was not under his command.
According to a newspaper, a three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry had on April 25 ordered the counsel for Mirza Aslam Beg to furnish the details of such accounts before the court by May 10.
The apex court has asked Beg’s counsel to furnish the details of the account before the next hearing.
