KARACHI: A five-member committee has been constituted by the management of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) to review, examine and recommend action in the fake degrees cases.
Air Vice Marshal Noor Abbas, advisor to the Chief Executive Office (CEO) will be chairman of this committee, sources said on Friday. Other four members are included: Agha Dur Muhammad Tarique, GM Legal Services; Col. Zahid Hamid, Chief Instructor PTC; Amir Bashir, GM Flight Services; and Rizwan Ahmed Awan.
The PIA management formed this committee to review the fake degrees cases and the penalties awarded.
PIA sources said that the review committee had been formed with the approval of the CEO.
The PIA management granted dismissal from service to over 400 employees for submitting fake educational degrees. However, around 200 employees moved the superior courts seeking relief against the decision. The court referred back the case to PIA management to review the cases as per law.
