ISLAMABAD – Former chief of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Lt General (retd) Asad Durrani has challenged the decision by a military court which found him guilty of violating the military’s code of conduct for co-authoring a book.

Durrani filed a petition before the Islamabad High Court on Monday, months after the military court convicted him for co-authoring ‘The Spy Chronicles’ with former Indian spy boss AS Dulat.

On February 22, the Director General of ISPR, Major General Asif Ghafoor had announced that Durrani was “no more entitled to pension and facilities and his name has been placed on the Exit Control List”.

In his application, the former ISI DG pleaded that his book was not a violation of the military’s code of conduct and that the verdict against him was illegal, seeking the IHC to dismiss the military court’s decision and reinstate his pension and all other benefits.
