Melbourne: A Pakistani Air Force cadet charged
with secretly filming a female cadet in the shower at the
Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) has been withdrawn by
the Pakistani government.

"Cadet Obaid Fayyaz has been withdrawn from ADFA on
disciplinary grounds," a Pakistan Air Force (PAF) spokesman
said in a statement from Islamabad, `Sydney Morning Herald`
daily reported today.

"The matter is under investigation in Australia and a
decision (on Fayyaz`s future) will be undertaken on completion
of the proceedings," he added.

Fayyaz had allegedly hid a mobile phone in a vent above
the shower.

The female cadet, 21, discovered the phone on August 25,
and reported the matter to the Australian Defence Force
Investigative Service.

Police later seized a mobile phone, a laptop computer and
a USB memory stick.

"Fayyaz has been withdrawn from training, and
accommodation has been arranged for him in accordance with
bail conditions that stipulate he does not contact or approach
(the) female cadet," the PAF spokesman said.
