Newsline: Corruption scam in Pakistan’s Jakarta and Tokyo embassies

The National Aaccountability Bureau (NAB )has completed its inquiry into the multi-million dollar corruption scam pertaining to illegal sale of Pakistan Embassy buildings in Jakarta Indonesia and Tokyo, Japan, a well informed source told the Daily Times. A NAB official confirmed that huge corruption was committed in the sale and the concrete evidence of this corruption has been collected which is sufficient to prove the case in a court in order to convict the accountable officers. The report has confirmed that some senior officer from the Foreign Office could be indicted in this scam and for this purpose the assent of the foreign sectary is being sought. The National Accountability Bureau NAB has completed the inquiry into this multi-million corruption scam in a prolonged time stretching over 14 years and has now submitted a comprehensive report to the chairman NAB for further action. NAB officials said that the foreign governments of Japan and Indonesia had cooperated with Pakistan Investigation officers of NAB and hads provide the required record and information in the line of the respective laws. The report says Kamran Niaz then ambassador to Japan and Major General Syed Mustafa Anwar Hussain, have been held responsible for these scams involving millions of rupees. The source further said that the then ruler General Musharraf approved and allowed the sale of these properties of embassies but the NAB report had kept mum over the role of Musharraf in the properties sale. Musharraf was then chief of army staff when the national assets were being plundered.
