ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry slammed the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on Friday for inaction in the Hajj corruption case.
The chief justice, who headed the bench, hearing the case, asked why no action had been taken against those who appointed former DG Hajj Rao Shakeel, even though his appointment was illegal.
The court also observed that no action had been taken against Ahmad Faiz, the main accused in the case.
Director FIA Hussain Asghar told the court that former Religious Affairs Minister Hamid Saeed Kazmi had appointed Ahmad Faiz, while FIA's additional director said that the agency was facing difficulties in ascertaining the actual amount embezzled in the Hajj scam.
