FIA arrests former MD PIA Ejaz Haroon from Karachi: sources

Karachi (Web Desk): The Federal Investigative Agency (FIA) has arrested PIA’s former managing director Ejaz Haroon along with former director of human resources for the airline Haneef Pathan.


According to sources, the two were arrested by the agency for misuse of authority, alleged involvement in financial irregularities and recruiting personnel illegally in the airline.

Ejaz Haroon had stepped down from the post of MD of PIA in 2011 after the national carrier's employees had protested against his appointment.

In 2018, it was reported that the FIA had launched an inquiry against Haroon, for allegedly committing massive corruption, being involved in money laundering and accumulating assets beyond known sources of income abroad.
