Islamabad: Pakistan has appointed a new chief for the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Directorate, months after US officials had questioned the reliability of the military’s premier spy agency in the war against terrorism.
In a statement released late on Monday evening, the military said Lieutenant General Ahmed Shujaa Pasha, formerly head of Military Operations, had been appointed Director-General of the ISI, replacing Lieutenant-General Nadeem Taj.
Taj had held the post for less than a year, having been promoted to the sensitive post by former army chief Pervez Musharraf, who was forced to quit as president last month to avoid impeachment by parliament.
