Exposing graft: 14 years on, informant awaits just reward

Published: February 13, 2012

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.

    Bravo! Aamir, you waited so long and so courageously and consistently. But its the time now those who usurped your just reward should be brought to justice and you should be rewarded for your services.

    I pray to Allah SWT who created Pakistan, to turn it into a just, clean and civil society where bad deeds are punished and good deeds are rewarded IN TIME.

    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

We will thereby be fulfilling our mission as Muslims and giving to humanity the message of peace which alone can save it and secure the welfare, happiness and prosperity of mankind” (~ Mohammad Ali Jinnah)

    Wow, I only needed to read the first few comments to realize how wrong this case of aamir ahsan khan handled till now. 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. Hope they both learned lesson.

Mr. Hassan Waseem Afzal is a main accused and Mr. Kausar Iqbal Malik is the second in line. Chief Justice of Pakistan or Chairman National Accountability Bureau may kindly take action against both ousted officers of Bureau. One thing that is for certain both are guilty of negligence while using public office. An in-depth inquiry against both officers can reveal many stories of corruption and personal gain.

    At that time the famous quote of Hazrat Ali (R.A) arises in my mind once again that “A society can run in ignorance but not with injustice”.
    This one sentence just summarizes the whole situation of this country. 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.

    Although, there are plenty of reasons of this prevailing inequality, but the biggest one is the unavailability of free judicial system. The judicial system of any country is usually above the government, but the situation in Pakistan is far different.

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.

    Why the media is silent on Aamir’s Case .That is a billion dollar question, might be they can’t see debate and fight of political puppets if they air this story on their Channels. The sad part is that high ups are involved in this case they have power and money. This case again highlighted the loopholes in our legal system and week NAB Ordinance. Media is said to be the fourth estate of our democracy, but sad part is our media always fails to fight for the right people like Aamir. I would like to urge the media to fight for Aamir Ahsan Khan, as it fought for many who are in deep pool of uncertainty and with no hope.

Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime.

Unfortunately, evidence is steadily and increasingly surfacing of widespread corruption in Pakistan as well in many parts of the world.

    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.

    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.
