COAS confirms life sentence to in-service major
In August earlier this year, Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa has confirmed life sentence to in-service army major.
According to Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the major was accused of misusing his authorities. Court-martial of the major was held over the allegations, it added.
The military media wing stated that Pakistan Army has strong and powerful accountability process.
A doctor associated with a “sensitive organisation” had also been handed down capital punishment on similar charges.
According to ISPR, General Bajwa endorsed the punishment to the officers on the charges of “espionage and leaking of sensitive information to foreign agencies prejudice to national security”.
Earlier, a three-star retired general had been sentenced to 14 years in jail and a retired brigadier awarded the death sentence by field general courts-martial on charges of espionage and leaking “sensitive information” to foreign agencies.
Last year, former army chief General (retd) Raheel Sharif dismissed 11 military officers over corruption charges which included one lieutenant general, one major general, five brigadiers, three colonels and one major.
