Islamabad Politics Report/Moazzam Raza Tabassam: Lieutenant General (retd) Asad Durrani, former chief of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), has been summoned to the Pakistan Army’s General Headquarters (GHQ) for explaining his position on views attributed to him in his book ‘The Spy Chronicles’, a Pakistani military spokesman confirmed Friday.
“Lt Gen (retd) Asad Durrani [is] being called to the GHQ on 28th May, 2018,” Major General Asif Ghafoor, the director general (DG) of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), said on Twitter.
“[Durrani] will be asked to explain his position on views attributed to him in book ‘Spy Chronicles’.”
Major General Ghafoor further said the “attribution [is] taken as violation of Military Code of Conduct applicable on all serving and retired military personnel.”
The development comes hours after former premier Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Senator Raza Rabbani voiced their reservations over the book.
