Throughout interrogation, a number of senior Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) officers have admitted to taking cash from Pakistan Worldwide Airways (PIA) as frontmen.

It’s pertinent to say right here that the doubtful licences claims had been put ahead by Federal Minister for Aviation Ghulam Sarwar Khan within the Nationwide Meeting in June of final 12 months after a PIA jet crashed in Karachi.

Sarwar had introduced within the NA that of the 860 pilots working in Pakistan, 262, over 30%, had faux flying licenses. He later backtracked and used a barely completely different terminology of “licenses obtained through dubious means.”

This, he stated, had been disclosed throughout a high-level investigation by a Board of Inquiry (BOI) constituted in February 2019.
