Jobbery!

February 28, 2010

By Anjum Niaz | The News

The yellow sticky ‘post-it’ became Benazir’s Achilles Heel. It’s alleged that she would use them whenever she didn’t want to leave a permanent record on the files. As prime minister, she often appointed people based not on merit. President Farooq Leghari knew what was going on. He was from her party. But when he had had enough of jobbery, he dug out all the yellow ‘stickies’ and prepared a dossier based on them to dismiss her government.

Prime Minister Gilani and President Zardari are today following the same unethical practice of a spoils system. The ambassador to Syria is the latest howler. He’s Zardari’s appointee. A mere graduate, we’re told. Ambassador Aminullah Raisani has carted his whole extended family to Damascus and provided them with jobs at the Pakistan International School. How smart is that! During his two-year term, the man will rake in close to a million dollars as salaries paid to his sister Saeeda (who has been made the principal); another sister Ms Abbas (Urdu teacher); daughters Amna and Quratulein (teachers-at-large) brother-in-law Ishaque (accountant); nephews Atiq and Ali (business teachers); granddaughter Nayla (math teacher); son-in-law of sister Abdullah and cousin Ahsan (teachers without portfolio); and cousin Rasheed (biology teacher).

“The only one left out is the ambassador’s dog!” a former ambassador to Syria tells me. “And if the ambassador should deem fit to appoint his dog at a princely salary, there is nothing anyone can do. The ambassador has the sole authority to deal with the affairs of the school as he pleases. You can write as many columns as you want, the sad truth is that no one can do a thing to take the ambassador to task. He’s a non-career diplomat. He’s a direct hire of Zardari.”

The Foreign Office is thus helpless. What a shame!

But the sacked teachers of the school in Damascus have taken the Pakistan embassy to court. Apart from the ambassador making a mockery of his position abroad, imagine how much of our valuable foreign exchange will now be sunk in defending the ambassador’s blatant nepotism. If the news report is true, does a starving nation, surviving on the ‘fruits of democracy’ as Zardari says, deserve to have such people as Raisani represent them abroad?

Thankfully, our embassy in Paris has been saved the humiliation of having a junior joint-secretary level DMG officer head the embassy. Fashion designer Mehmood Bhatti recommended the officer to Zardari who as we all know too well by now likes to honour his friends’ wishes. The senior civil servants protested by going to court and had the appointment cancelled. Why does our president continue to appoint people who don’t merit the job? By the time Raisani and his family leave Damascus, the reputation of the school, considered one of the best, would be mud. The handsome earnings that the school fetches would be in family coffers. How sad. The ambassador is the chairman of the board and controls all the money which is non-auditable. 

“We are but helpless onlookers,” says the former ambassador to Syria who lists out his own achievements in making the 20-year-old school a success story. 

Then we have the story of Brig (r) Aziz Ahmad, rector of the National University of Modern Languages (NUML). The man in broad daylight has the gall to get his whole family on board, literally. Daughters, nephews, brothers and daughter’s father-in-law are on NUML’s payroll. Earlier this very enterprising brigadier wangled scholarships for daughter and son-in-law for doctoral studies in Britain. (Gosh, the guy must love his daughter a lot!).

And guess what, he even accommodated his darling daughter’s father-in-law Maj (r) Akhtar as deputy director Peshawar Campus.

One can only ask Sardar Aseff Ahmed Ali, prime minister’s adviser on education to rectify the wrongs being perpetrated at home and abroad. He can do it.

  1. Unless all above is reversed i.e ambassador and his family are recalled and status quo restored,I would continue in my belief that the media(Elec.&print)is not sincere to the country.

    This one time shouting will not do.

    It is to highlight and bringing to your kind notice as an appeal for investigation and justice for the corruption and mal-practice of authorities at Pakistan International School of Damascus, Syria, since the arrival of new Ambassador of Mr. Amin Ullah Raisani in Syria school become a place for accommodating relatives children’s, kens of the embassy officials and it appears the school is the personal property of embassy staff of Pakistan Embassy.
    Ambassador of Pakistan.
    1. He appoint his sister Mrs. Saeeda Raisani, As Principal, of (PISOD) Pakistan International School of Damascus, Syria, and also appoint his brother in law as an Accountant (PISOD), on heavy salary package without rule and criteria.
    2. He appoint his two daughters and more than 10 family members in (PISOD), in heavy salary package without rule and criteria.
    3. He is involves in too much financial corruption of (PISOD) Pakistan International School of Damascus, affairs that everybody related to school knows including students parents, teaching and staff members are suffering the situation of mental stress, because he come everyday morning to the school and stays in the school as discipline incharge (Like a PT teacher) stands on the main gate and collecting the fine (money) from late comers students or without uniform, its his daily practice and this act is against the ethic of morality of an Ambassador. (pictures are attached).
    4. Every Staff Member and Teaching Staff are suffered in mental Stress and threats of being terminated from the school at any time without assigning anz reason even the previous Principal Toseif Bokhari was terminated without any allegation who was running the school quite successfully for the last three years, who promoted the school from 600 approx students to the double strength, with a definite increase in the income and savings for (PISOD).
    5. Ambassador has inducted too many members of his family on lucrative salaries and incentives, which broke all the records of financial corruption (a comparative statement of salaries is enclosed).
    6. He raised the salaries to more than 150% without any approval from the competent authority i.e. Ministry of Foreign Affairs, although the Ministry instructed them to get an approval for any new hiring from Pakistan on heavy salaries.
    7. Income of the PISOD in 2006 was 2042400 dollars per annum and after 3 years of hard work of the terminated management it went to 4774000 dollars per annum. But now he is using his authority over and above and steeling the (PISOD) reserved funds. Sir, you can check the Account of PISOD from Habib Bank Lebanon from September, 2009 to January, 2010.
    8. Three court cases are filed against the Ambassador and his Sister (Principal) in Syria for illegal termination of some Syrian National school staff members. Annexure Attached.
    Mr. Atta Ullaha, Councilor.
    1. He is involved in financial and moral corruption, he is enjoying his illicit relations with some unknown ladies, giving them illegal-unauthorized benefits and hiring them in (PISOD).
    2. He had issued one illegal passport to an Iraqi Leady who had her own Iraqi passport authorizing her two different places of birth/nationality alongwith two different locations. Only for raise of her salary from 550 dollars 3200 dollars because Pakistani Passport holders are engaging on heavy salary. (photo copy of both Passports are attached).
    Mr. Zahid, Councilor..
    1. Head of Chancery (HOC)Pakistan Embassy in Syria violating his legal position by appointing his son Mr. Uzair in (PISOD) on a pay 2000 dollars per month, who have not even passed over his A level examinations. May be he is even less than 18 years by replacing another Librarian Mr. Kamran Farhat who was working as Librarian with MSc. Qualifications for a salary scale of 550 dollars per month and his life was made even more bitter to quite his job.
    2. HOC has violated on many occasion he is utilizing (PISOD) income to fulfill their embassy’s expenditures like petrol in the cars, frequent lavish dinners and tea parties in different hotels restaurants’ are arranged from (PISOD) funds because nobody is their who can account far these unauthorized acts of these officers.
    3. A new car was purchased for the Ambassador but the previous car is still in the usage of Ambassador’s wife and its maintenance and fuelling is being done from the PISOD funds, which is supervised by Mr. Zahid (HOC).
