Accused Pakistani agent scheduled to enter pleaVa. man accused secretly receiving millions from Pakistan's spy service set to plead guilty
McLEAN, Va. (AP) ' A Virginia man accused of secretly receiving millions of dollars from Pakistan's spy service while he lobbied Congress on the disputed Kashmir territory is expected to plead guilty to federal charges.
A hearing has been scheduled Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Alexandria for Syed Ghulam Nabi Fai. He was executive director of the Kashmiri American Council when he was arrested in July.
An FBI affidavit says Fai received $500,000 to $700,000 a year from Pakistani intelligence, but never disclosed those links while serving as a supposedly independent lobbyist on Kashmir. The region's control is sharply disputed by Pakistan and India.
A court paper indicates Fai is likely to enter a plea on a broad conspiracy charge and a second count of impeding the Internal Revenue Service.
