http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2005380113,,00.html

...but according to man who knows a man who knows a man in Main Bldg who knows about this stuff:

Defence Attache removed from post (Sun)

It is reported that the Defence Attache to Pakistan has been removed from post after losing the confidence of the High Commission. MOD COMENT: The MOD can confirm that Brigadier Durcan, previously the Defence Attache in Islamabad, has been removed from post following an internal investigation into his conduct. The MoD decision to recall him was made after he lost the confidence of the High Commission. 17/08/2005.


Alas, the honey trap appears to have claimed one more struggling insect.....watch and shoot, watch and shoot.

Mate, I've just heard a first-hand opinion which diverges about 180 degrees from yours....cap badge perspectives probably.

Will not speculate on reasons for his removal any further....I expect the Daily Planet will give us all a garbled version in due course....

ISI strikes again :twisted:

In the interests of fairness, I do recall MI5 attempting to bug the Pakistani embassy in London a while back:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/pakistan/Story/0,2763,1082428,00.html

Interesting, reports suggest the woman in question was a Pakistani 'defence analyst'. Believe it or not, there are quite a few women working in this role for the Pakistani Institute of Strategic Studies in Islamabad. Maybe it was:

Maria Sultan

or maybe:

Faiza Rais

Personally, if I was ISI, this is the Pakistani girl I would be using :D :

British diplomats attacked in Pakistan

Saturday August 13, 2005

Guardian

A son-in-law of the disgraced Pakistani scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan - who sold nuclear secrets to Iran and North Korea - has been arrested in Islamabad for allegedly attacking two British diplomats, it emerged yesterday.
A gang of about five young men viciously assaulted the British couple as they walked through a wealthy neighbourhood, officials said.

Both suffered "facial and other injuries" but were making a full recovery, the British high commissioner, Mark Lyall Grant, said yesterday.

Islamabad police said they arrested Saad Ali Khan, whose father-in-law, AQ Khan, was once revered as a national hero for developing Pakistan's nuclear bomb.

"He had some quarrel with the British diplomats," said Safeer Bhatti, head of Islamabad's Kohsar police station.

Mr Lyall Grant said the two had suffered injuries and the matter was now in the hands of the police. "Both the diplomats suffered facial and other injuries. Happily those injuries, though serious at the time, are not long-lasting and so they are making a full recovery," he told reporters.

"There was more than one youth involved and the attack did last for some minutes."

News of the assault rippled across the international community of the normally peaceful city, which has a large population of foreign diplomats and Pakistani civil servants.

The attack took place early on Sunday a few streets from the house where AQ Khan has been under house arrest since February 2004.

Khan fell into disgrace after confessing on television that he sold nuclear secrets to at least three different countries. Pakistan has refused to allow international experts to question him further.

A British official familiar with last weekend's attack said it appeared to have no link with Dr Khan. Instead it appeared to be a "hate crime" committed by "educated, drunk rich kids", he said.

The British couple, who have not been named for security reasons, told colleagues they were strolling home from a nearby friends' house when a car swerved menacingly towards them.

When the British man made a finger gesture in retaliation, the car skidded to a halt, a group of young men leaped out and attacked the couple with their fists and feet.

They particularly targeted the woman, a high commission administrative officer, punching her in the face while restraining her partner.

They used bad language and appeared to know the couple's nationality, said one official. "They were cussing and swearing in fluent English, referring to them as Brits," he said.

The alarm was raised by the guard of a nearby house occupied by another British diplomat and high commission medical staff treated the couple's injuries.

Yesterday morning the woman, who still bears the scars of her attack, had resumed work.

Mr Khan was brought before a magistrate who ordered two weeks detention pending further investigation.

Police are questioning him about the identities of his alleged fellow attackers.

At a press briefing yesterday, the British high commission yesterday was at pains to stress that the recent bombings in London had not put the relationship between the UK and Pakistan under strain.

Mr Lyall Grant said the problem lay not with any country but within a section of global society driven by fanatical views. Referring to the attacks on July 7, he said: "They were British ... all four were brought up, educated and presumably radicalised in the UK. There is no question of blaming Pakistan for the attacks. Nor will UK.-Pakistan relations be adversely affected."

The high commissioner said Britain was receiving excellent cooperation from Pakistan in the investigation into what two of the bombers did and whom they met during trips to the country, but he declined to give details.

Nice analogy Castlereagh. :D One of "Buddy's" offspring or "special interests" perhaps?

The British couple, who have not been named for security reasons, told colleagues they were strolling home from a nearby friends' house when a car swerved menacingly towards them.
Brigadier Durcan was not involved in this incident.

According to Pak observer story she a dual national - I wonder what profession is written on her pak passport 'seducer of fat British military buffoons?'

Holding dual nationality, one Pakistani and other British, Ms M K has been associated with the Institute for many years
Who knows PTP, you could be in with a shot :wink:
