ISI had full sway over Fai and his organisation
Washington: Separatist Syed Ghulam Nabi Fai
and his Kashmiri American Council were under full control of
ISI, being run as an extension of Pakistan`s spy agency to
convince US lawmakers, officials and thinktanks about their
viewpoint on Kashmir, according to latest court documents.
The US-based Kashmiri separatist pleaded guilty on Wednesday
to federal charges of spying for the ISI, illegally lobbying
the Congress to influence the American policy on Kashmir and
clandestinely receiving money from the ISI.
As part of the plea agreement, federal US Government
Attorney and Fai signed a 26-page State of Fact document which
reveals in details not only the modus operandi of Fai, his
relationship with ISI, but also his budget for annual
contributions to lawmakers which ranged from USD 80,000 to USD
1000,000 per annum.
According to this "Statement of Fact", Fai received at
least USD 3.5 million (over Rs 16 crores as estimated on
current rates) since 1990 for his KAC work to advance
Pakistan`s interest on Kashmir in the US.
Running into 81 paragraphs, the Statement of Facts also
identifies the names of the ISI officials who were Fai`s
handlers or acquaintances in Pakistan.
The officials Fai dealt with were Javeed Aziz Khan also
known as "Brigadier Abdullah (`Khan`)" who handled Kashmiri
affairs in the mid-1990s; major general Mumtaz Ahmad Bajwa,
who in late 2008 became head of the ISI`s Security Directorate
that oversees Kashmiri militant groups, Lieutenant Colonel
Touqeer Mehmood Butt, and Sohail Mahmood also known as "Mir".
Fai told US District Judge O`Grady, when asked by the
latter, that all information provided in this "Statement of
Fact" were true and then later signed it also in the court.
