Fawad Hassan Fawad removed as PS to PM

LAHORE: Fawad Hassan Fawad, principal secretary to the prime minister, was posted as the director general of the Civil Services Academy (CSA) as soon as caretaker prime minister Justice (r) Nasirul Mulk assumed office on Friday.

Mulk has appointed cabinet secretary Sohail Amir as his new principal secretary.

Fawad has claimed that he requested for the transfer himself.

It is pertinent to note that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has launched an inquiry into the alleged financial irregularities in the awarding of the Ashiana-e-Iqbal Housing Scheme contract to a bidder in violation of the relevant laws.

“An inquiry has revealed that you are in possession of information and evidence regarding the cancellation of a contract in respect to the Ashiana-e-Iqbal Project launched by Punjab Land Development Company (PLDC),” said a notice issued by NAB to Fawad earlier.

NAB had summoned Fawad on June 1 but the former PS failed to appear before NAB authorities.
