Exposing graft: 14 years on, informant awaits just reward

Had assisted accountability bureau recover Rs3 billion from the Schon Group.

Had assisted accountability bureau recover Rs3 billion from the Schon Group.

LAHORE: An intelligence asset who was a major source of information for many years in the former Ehtasab Bureau, forerunner of the current National Accountability Bureau (NAB), still awaits the national accolade announced for him fourteen years back.

The award money is also sorely missed.

Aamir Ahsen Khan, in his days as an intelligence agent, played an instrumental role in assisting the Bureau to recover Rs3 billion from the Schon Group.

Fourteen years on, the Tamgha-e-Imtiaz announced for his feat remains elusive.

Khan, while talking to The Express Tribune, revealed that he had been physically abused by the then-sitting chairman of Ehtesaab Bureau for not acceding to his demands.

The chairman wanted Khan to accept nominal prize money and sign to have received the full amount.

“When I refused to do so, as a matter of principle, Saifur Rehman and his brother Mujeebur Rehman physically assaulted me,” Khan said.

Khan was working as a senior manager maintenance with the Schon Group in 1997 when he was pressurised to sign bogus bills of Rs640 million.

According to the intensive ‘transparency’ policy of the time, as well as the Ehtasab/NAB ordinance 1999, the informant was to be paid the (widely publicised) reward money of 10% of the recovered amount.

The then-prime minster Nawaz Sharif had personally seen the application of Khan, marking it for the release of reward, according to the documents obtained by The Express Tribune. The documents further reveal that after exposing the corruption of Schon Group, Khan wrote numerous letters and had personal audience with the officials concerned. He was assured that his case will be dealt on a priority basis. That failed to materialise.

In the tenure of former president Pervez Musharraf, NAB Chairman Naved Ahsan referred Khan’s case to the ousted DG NAB Kausar Iqbal, who deliberately delayed it for another 6 years, Khan alleged.

He was subsequently left with no option but to seek Justice from Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry.

When contacted, NAB officials familiar with the matter confirmed Khan’s claims.

Sources in NAB say that Khan has a strong case. If taken up by the court, NAB and the government will be left with no option but to pay the due reward, they added.

    As a research student on corruption in Pakistan I was going through this article published in tribune and I felt really happy and sad at the same time; happy because I came to know that there are still some people in our country who are sincere with their motherland and try to fight for the betterment of the country and are working for the elimination of corruption and sad because people like Mr.Khan are not rewarded for what they deserve.

    Studying in the United Kingdom, pursuing an International Relations degree, I feel that the problem lies in the institutional foundation of Pakistan where the judiciary although equipped with the right resources and professionals, is deliberately kept away from cases which deserve due attention and have been denied justice. This case of denied rights for over 14 years has finally reached us, the public and it is high time that we all collaborate effectively to encourage the government, and the Supreme Court to understand the obligation they have towards law-abiding citizens like Mr. Khan.If cases like these are brushed under the carpet, there is effectively no need for NAB to exist, since accountability will already be a forgotten phenomena. Pakistan needs civic awakening and that is only possible when individuals like Mr.Khan are given a fora to pursue their reward and consequently contribute towards annihilating institutional corruption and red-tapism. Bravo Express Tribune!

    its really demotivating that a person who was informant was assaulted :( if it was Europe or America the situation could exactly the opposite but unfortunately this is Pakistan where there is no respect for those who stand against corruption in fact this is the country which supports corrupts n culprits.I m disappointed reading this article May Allah bless Mr Khan and he gets what he deserves….
    one of the names mentioned above is kauser Iqbal Malik who deliberately delayed this case i think everyone who is femilier with his name knows the stories of his corruption which are mentioned in the newspapers so many times but i m astonished sill he is enjoying public service!! An inquiry should be made about him disclosing all the facts n corruptions he made.

    Chief Justice of Pakistan please prove what you said is not words, Aamir reward case is test case.

    The administration of justice in a country like Pakistan is considered a duty solely for courts and the legal fraternity, and as a result of this fictitious notion, allied institutions have started feeling relaxed and good governance is being compromised, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry said on Tuesday.

    The chief justice made the comments while presiding over a full-court reference organised to acknowledge the services of Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan –who retired on Tuesday after eight years of service as an SC judge.

    The chief justice said good governance suffered when any one of the three state organs – the legislature, the executive or the judiciary – was ineffective or not working in line with the constitution. He said the judiciary’s duty was to preserve and protect the constitution, interpret laws, enforce fundamental rights and settle disputes.

    He said Justice Raza had delivered justice without fear or favours and contributed a lot to upholding the rule of law and the supremacy of the constitution.

    Justice Raza said, “Over the last three years, the judiciary has gone through … [one of the] the worst crises in history … that is why the judicial norms need to be guarded jealously.”

    Pakistan
    I gone through your investigation and read Express Tribune dated 13 Feb, 2012 by subject as under:
    Exposing graft: 14 years on, informant awaits just reward
    Corruption is a mortal threat to democracy and I choose my words carefully. Corrupt practices
    undermine and may eventually destroy people’s confidence in political institutions and state
    administration. When this happens there is a risk that democracy will not function, become a
    charade or simply disappear.It was therefore natural that, I felt the need to engage in a comprehensive action to prevent and combat corruption continent wide. You and your beautiful country is witnessing, on the one hand, the fall of the Afghanistan and, on the other hand, a series of mainly politically related corruption scandals. The reward case of Mr. Aamir Ahsan Khan should be addressed properly. Pakistani powerful media is now supporting his cause, its all because of your honesty and investigation. Hope you always help those who are fighting against corruption. Best wishes and a very prosper 2012.

    Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) emphasized on social justice the reason is that all the evil starts when there is no justice in a territory.Is this SO CALLED “Islamic state” where there is nothing Islamic ??

    Pakistan is a country where everybody talks about democracy but so called Democracy is far beyond this state. I think those who talk about democracy either do not know what is the meaning of it or whatever practicing in Pakistan is democracy according to them.I want to raise a question to all the politicians of Pakistan that if this is democracy where a person is struggling since 14 years and no one heard his voice,then we Pakistanis do not need democracy any more .

    This is the country which is separated in the name of Islam, the more disappointing is what islam teaches us Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) always emphasized on justice and equality but unfortunately this state is far beyond the teachings of Islam.we talk about the bad things of western world but infact they do have all the things what islam teaches us.They people love humanity and justice,so its my earnest request to higher authorities do something for honest people like Aamir Ahsan Khan.

    Who is behind the corruption?

    Can we pin point the root causes for corruption and injustice i.e. which “institutions”, government positions “invites” corruption and injustice?

    Unfortunately a total elimination of corruption and injustice is not possible. So, what can we do to minimize corruption? Devolution of power? or by giving justice to people like mr.aamir ahsan khan ??

    Dear Mr. Khan

    Your story is a sad reminder of the state of justice (in fact the lack there of) in this country. But your plea (rather demand) for justice fourteen years on since the Schon group got busted shows your perserverence and determination which even has a pessimist like me see bit of a silver lining; if not entirely in the crippled system but wholly in the people who live and run it every day.

    If you get justice…yours will be a case that will go down in history and if you dont you will join ranks with the likes of Mukhtara Mai who despite international support over a painfully long period of nine years of struggle could not stir up the long dead courts of justice of this country. Their excuse: poor prosecution!!!

    I wish you the best of luck in your endeavour. You may just be blessed with a good timing (politically speaking) but still keeping your fingers crossed would be a good idea!

Despite all my efforts to pursue my right through every possible route, I never achieved any constructive outcome. However 13th February changed the dynamics of this case altogether. Express Tribune and its correspondent, Mr. Asad Kharal have been a huge pillar of support and a very genuine platform of reaching out to the public to not just win support for my cause but also to reveal the realities to all those Pakistanis, who remain ignorant about the real nature of transparency networks in our country. Now that I have been bestowed with such respect and regard for my patience and efforts, all I wish to achieve is recognition from the relevant authorities and the officials at National Accountability Bureau (NAB). This in my opinion will be the real face of justice and reward.

Sometimes, the cases linger on for years, even decades. This is a strenuous problem for Mr.Aammir Ahsan Khan as the complainant, there will be no light or ray of hope while fighting for his rights in the corridors of justice. In these corridors of Justice you will find several grave yards of Pakistanis who were denied of Justice.

    Now, is this (yet another) travesty of justice only a logical fallout, subsequent to mass irregularities and “Skimming”, not only off the toppings of the proverbial cake of public money, but now, this blatant and continuing non-cognizance of an injustice, a currently “normal” sequel by default of common practice or mischance?

    Where are we headed, dear countrymen and women?

    Have the folks “in the saddle” of power not been exposed to the decent way of governence? (which should indeed be their sacred trust).

    What happened to the lofty words of our dear Quaid-e-Azam? or does one read into these foul happenings as a mirror image of our fast evaporating senses of good governance and answer-ability?

    What about our own conscience?

    Brothers and sisters, is all such decay of propriety because, our country is already on the brink of being rated a “Failed State” due to the gnawing away of it’s innards by the criminal acts of commission and omission by those at the crucial helm of affairs, who now feed upon the illegal gluttony of corruption?

    Above ALL, what happened to the practicing our own all-encompassing Faith? Have we lost the meaning and heavy truth relating to the observance of Amaanat or sacred Trust?

    Must we then remember the words of a great poet, who in his own environment of yore, said “Breathes there a man with soul so dead….”? indeed, are we only “Believers” by dint of birth? but what about living up to the high Morals of astute practice, as is so clearly enshrined in our Holy Books?

    I would most courteously exhort upon the Honorable Chief Justice of our Supreme Court to promptly take learned cognizance of the horror of this crass example of miss-governance of the worst order!

    14 years, and waiting,… till the supplicant transits this world, without even smelling the sweet perfume of moral and statutory justice?

    No! at the risk of enraging the souls of my deceased pioneering parents, who, in 1947 opted in, to the fledgling State of Pakistan, should I now be shirking to call myself “A Proud Pakistani”?

    We can only support Aamir, and request Chief Justice to take necessary action against the out going Chairmen of NAB, It was also on record that NAB officials have distributed the reward money among them self in the name of perks. What a law, I request Chief Justice to take necessary action and nominate Honest Auditors to Audit the account of National Accountability Bureau since it st5art up. I request a fair in depth inquiry against NAB officials.This is a test case for our independent Judicial system .

    The old adage that justice delayed is justice denied has never been more pertinent in above case of AAMIR AHSAN KHAN – as the whole Supreme Court that helps citizens to access justice has not been functioning due to several cases are pending. The reason – and example is above case which should be solved by National Accountability Bureau on his own. Government of Pakistan may review their conditions of service to common citizens. So apart from the occasional judicial orders – such as recent rulings in SOU MOTO cases – only two arms of Government are really operational – the legislature and the powerful media.Mr. Asad Kharal who is very famous and have respect in Superior Courts can request Honorable Chief Justice to take Sou Moto action in Aamir Ahsan

Our inequalities in our justice system ARE the result of a ruling class seeking domination over the poor, helpless people of this country , massive amounts of corruption within our government and especially the judicial system and everything that ever happens within government is a deliberate act. If aamir case is pending more is because someone power full like mention in story kausar iqbal malik of national accountability bureau wanted it that way. If only people who can afford to pay exorbitant sums to a ruling class of lawyers get “justice” then it is because it is deliberately structured that way. A test case for Chief Justice.

    Lesson to remember: Probably money, fame and power have been a worldly blessing are destiny of Mr. Hassan Waseem Afzal and Kausar Iqbal Malik, but they should remember that, God has his own exclusive manners of teaching his men. When a people rises to a position where they think they are the supreme authority and they soon chooses to forget the source of their rise to power, such an attitude soon becomes a cause of their downfall. Everything that rises must fall and this statement categorizes all those Pakistanis who conveniently forget the dire needs of the common Pakistani citizen. Now since 5 years Hassan Waseem Afzal is OSD and Kausar Iqbal Malik is prohibited to enter his parent department National Bank of Pakistan, taken shoulder of his Petarian brother he is working with Ministry of Petroleum.

No wonder this nation is still striving to exist and people are fighting for their basic needs even after 64 years of independence. Corruption and injustice are a common practice in every field of life. Anyone who gets a chance, grabs the opportunity with both hands and makes as much black money as possible and the height of irony is that the one who is best at corruption gets the reward and becomes our representative in the legislative bodies. The worst thing is that they are not even accountable for their deeds and are enjoying a luxurious life in their mansions, their children are studying in the top universities of the world and on the other hand we hear this news that a young boy has been arrested by police because he was trying to steal some food for his family.

    The rule of law has vanished in Pakistani justice system. Prosecutors now decide whom to punish and how severely. In Aamir’s case till now no one accused of a injustice. no one can say will ever get his right. Inconsistent NAB policing, rampant plea bargaining, pending cases, contract appointments and ever more draconian sentencing have produced a gigantic laps in administration of NAB ordinance. It is passionately argued, Our generation looks to history for the roots of not administration of Justice to Aamir Ahsan Khan — Kharal sb. write some thing for the solution of the case.

  • My dear Aamir Ahsan Khan, brother you are living in a country, where rulers (both in government & opposition) have been inhaling major parts of the national exchequer, they and their collaborators, facilitators and share holders have been rewarded with highest rewards/awards ( including allotment of thousands of acres of lands, promotions,grades, ambassadorships ) but people like you, who at their own and even taking high risk for their lives,could produce extra ordinary services, have been humiliated. I challenge the Pakistani Authorities to evaluate the individuals, who have been given awards, and the nation would get shocks (worst then the last earthquake in Kashmir), that majority of the recipients have done nothing to achieve those awards (only this information can become a source of revolution and will help the people to rise). Brother Pakistan is a country where traitors,agents of foreign powers, looters and plunderers have been/are being rewarded for their treason against motherland and against the peoples rights. You should continue fighting for your right, but besides, I assure you that the award, which you can expect from the Lord of the heaven and earth, would be above anything. InshAllah

    In a democracy if the Press does its job, it exposes major financial scandals. But if the government and parliament do not respond with effective Investigation anti disclosure, then the purpose of democracy is defeated and the state suffers diminution of authority. Finally, the nature of corruption matters. Corruption may, be linked to production; or it may be wasteful theft. A bribe taken from an investor in return for a quick clearing of bureaucratic hurdles is illegal and immoral; but in the present circumstances of Aamir’s reward case it may harm the thoughts of youth much and demoralize lesson of honesty as well.

On other hand Chief Justice may kindly cancel Tamga-e- Imtaz awarded to Hassan Waseem Afzal another civil servant who is equally responsible for the delay of Aamir award and reward.

The violators of Law are moving freely and Chairman NAB reluctant to use his power , These violators are less the common people than, the politicians and executives whom we have appointed democracy’s guardians. The violations are daily, and institutionalized. Aamir Ahsan Khan example is not only one which is ignored there are several.

He very sincerely investigated the injustice done.I do not know this case of injustice would contribute to get other informants thir reward from NAB. Given the fact that our government is neither accountable to the public nor sensitive to the opinion of mankind, our protest may have no affect until this regime has exhausted all its assets and taken the country down the road to moral, political, and economic bankruptcy. However, lack of success does not justify the crime of silence in the face of criminal, arbitrary power. Dear Mr. Kharal sb. Let us know the progress of the case don’t let it die.

    Corruption has always been in Pakistan and it will always be in Pakistan, to think otherwise is both childish and naive. The fault in this scenario lies not fully with the people who are culprit in this but also with Mr. Khan for not seeing through the veil of broken promises and empty words. Being an intelligent agent he should have figured it out that his just rewards for his services are not met with the same enthusiasm in which they were promised in. Also, the lapses in our Judiciary system for not fulfilling its duties is also troublesome for even after 14 years it fails to deliver justice. I agree with most of the comments above that its high time that these issues should be addressed head-on rather than swept them under a carpet as Miss Sabiha pointed out. Also, to think that we should eradicate corruption is foolish to say as it an incurable disease, however, what he can do is work around the system to give the justice its due reward. I hope and pray that such enlightening revelation should be reported by journalist to uncover the mask of deceit and hopelessness and give the voice to the voiceless. Kudos to the author of the article for showing us the true face of journalism.

    JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED
    Why do the masters of our nation’s destinies, are waiting for the doom’s day to fall. Their slumbering conscience will be on the alert when the poverty stricken people of Pakistan, who are already constrained to sell out their offspring, will start eating each other flesh i.e. usurp each other rights. Surrounded by the evils of terrorism, unemployment, power crises and social-economical injustice they see no one to bind their hopes with. Is there any veteran to address and redress these grievances?

    I am extremely humbled and touched by the sort of response my father has gotten from Express Tribune and more specifically Mr. Kharal. It has been 15 years since I have seen him run from pillar to post to achieve his rights and dues as promised by the Government of Pakistan, Ehtasab Cell and NAB. However the political climate in our country is such that irrespective of the legitimacy of one’s case and an unparalleled dedication to one’s country, we live in times where only those who have privileged access to the authorities can seek their rights.
    He is a respectable Engineer by profession, and someone who is a man of principles. Living a simplistic life, he acted in favour of Pakistan and many others who would have been victimized
    by acts of financial misappropriation. Hence being an informant who never intended to bend the rules, or supercede official legislation and merely acted on the call of the Government, I strongly believe that, he more than anyone deserves justice. I stand by the claim that justice delayed is justice denied and it is appalling that an authority which represents the biggest struggle against corruption and fraudulent activities, and despite being at the forefront of politics for the last 15 years or so (NAB), is still playing this cat and mouse game with my father.
    We are taught that what goes around, comes around and in effect life is all about choices and consequences; unfortunately in the case of my father, he made a brave choice by risking his safety and helping the people of Pakistan by his valiance but the implications were literally uncalled for. He did not deserve the consequences he faced. I urge the people, the Supreme Court, the Honourable Chief Justice and most importantly NAB authorities to wake up from their slumber and deliver, before the citizens of our nation lose faith in their moral fiibre

    ‘Dear Chief Justice of Pakistan
    I hope you will look into the matter with a view to provide relief to the Pakistani people from injustice, corruption and abuse of office by those who claim to be defenders of the law and the state.’ Please take Sou Motto in Aamir reward case, and take action against Mr. Hassan Waseem Afzal and ousted DG NAB Mr. Kausar Iqbal Malik after putting their names in ECL.
