Ex-acting PIA chief: Flying off home, German evades corruption probe

Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) is still investigating corruption charges against former acting CEO of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), Bernd Hildenbrand – a German national – who went abroad for a month under a special exemption despite his name being on the Exit Control List (ECL).
Sources in the FIA informed The Express Tribune that no FIR has been registered against him and that the investigation into the case has reached no conclusion.
The sources went on to say that although the investigation is progressing slowly owing to his absence in the country, they have already ruled out contacting Interpol, to bring him back to Pakistan against his charges.
However, according to protocol, Pakistan cannot contact international security agencies until a formal case is registered against the accused here.

“Hildenbrand will appear before the body whenever he is required to,” said the FIA sources. However, whether or not he will ever return to Pakistan is not confirmed.
