ISLAMABAD:
Pakistan's army has sentenced a general to life imprisonment for spying and ordered the death penalty for a brigadier and a civilian officer convicted in the same case, a military statement said on Thursday.

Following a closed-door military trial, army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa endorsed the sentences on the three for "espionage (and) leaking sensitive information to foreign agencies in detriment to national security," the statement said.

Retired Lieutenant General Javed Iqbal was jailed for a life term, meaning he will serve 14 years in prison under Pakistani law. Retired Brigadier Raja Rizwan was sentenced to death alongside Wasim Akram, a civilian doctor employed by an army organisation.


The army did not give further details about the information that was allegedly leaked by the three men or say to whom it was disclosed. It was not clear if the two military officers had already retired from service before the case against them began.

COMMENT
Pakistan's army has its own laws and courts, and military officers accused of wrongdoing are always tried behind closed doors. Rulings can only be challenged or reviews in accordance with military procedures.

I think this is a sign of chaos. Paki army executing CIA assets is pretty extreme.

Is Paki army afraid of CIA passing info to India???

Baba is a BSer and all his info is fake. These morons can get MBDA to integrate the meteors on our Mirages and then whack the porkis but idiots want them to be fitted on the mkis which do not have a european radar and thus refused by the vendors.

Did Baba talk about meteor? No.
Baba is psy-op. And first rule of psy-op is to mix truth with lies. The purpose of psy-op is to force the enemy to react, and thus gain useful information.

Russia would love to try out its air-air missiles in India-Pakistan battlefield. This is the most realistic battlefield for such a test.

So rest assured that Russian missiles can do their magic before any meteors are fired from Su-30.

Let's talk about Tarbela. Maybe nothing happened there. But this "news" was preceded by news of a 60km range guided bomb and deployment of Akash batteries on the border. So you can do a 2+2=5 thing.
