ISLAMABAD - Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) investigating Haj corruption affairs has adopted a 'go-slow' policy after the ruling PPP strongly reacted on the issuance of notices by the Agency to former Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani and his son for their alleged involvement in the scam, sources informed The Nation.Some lawmakers in the National Assembly including PPP chief whip Syed Khurshid Shah had strongly reacted over FIA's action against the former prime minister and his elder son Abdul Qadir Gilani. Qadir, who is also a member of the national assembly, too raised great hue and cry on the floor of the House and later the matter was referred to House Privilege Committee.A source in the FIA claimed that FIA DG Anwar Virk succumbing to the pressure of the government has directed his subordinates conducting investigations of the Haj scam to slow down the process. “The issue would be kept in limbo and I see no further progress in the case,” the source said.Interestingly, Khurshid Shah, ignoring the fact that no one is above the law, had even said on the floor of the assembly that FIA DG should be summoned by the House over the issue and even brought handcuffed if he would refuse to appear.A senior FIA official on the condition of anonymity viewed that there was nothing left in the Haj case and chief investigator Hussain Asghar, Director Special Investigation Unit (SIU) of FIA, would not be able to dig out anything else in the case. According to him, main accused Ahmed Faiz was a proclaimed offender and was residing in Saudi Arabia, and the FIA so far remained unable to net him.The investigation agency has already submitted the final challan of the case before the court and what remained else in the case, he said. “The primary thing in the case is whether corruption was committed in the Haj arrangements during 2010, when buildings were hired by Pakistan officials in Saudi Arabia for the pilgrims,” he said, adding that things like how former DG Haj Rao Shakeel Ahmed was appointed were of secondary importance.FIA Director Hussain Asghar has served two notices on former PM Yousaf Raza Gilani in the same month to appear before the investigation teams, besides serving notices on Abdul Qadir Gilani and his close friend Zain Sukhera. The ex-PM is accused of appointing Rao Shakeel at a time when some NAB cases were pending against him and he was not eligible for the posting. FIA first served the notice on Gilani to appear before it on Nov 16 and then on Nov 28. But he did not turn up and his counsel submitted the reply on behalf of his client.Ch Faisal Hussain, the counsel for Gilani told The Nation the other day that under article 248 (1) of the constitution, Prime Minister was not answerable to any court in his official functions and so the notices of FIA served on his client were unlawful and had no legal value. He said that Hussain Asghar had personal grudges with his client because he had been transferred to Gilgit Baltistan from FIA during his stint as prime minister. However, FIA sources are of the view that it was mere an allegation as Asghar was very happy with his posting there because he was junior DIG when he was appointed Gilgit Baltistan IG.FIA in its challan submitted before the court had held guilty former DG Haj Rao Shakeel Ahmed and Ministry of Religious Affairs Joint Secretary Aftabul Islam of mismanagement in Haj affairs. FIA had exonerated former Religious Affairs Minister Hamid Saeed Kazmi from the charges of corruption by writing ambiguous findings against him in the report. The challan had excluded and not even touched the two other accused in Haj scam, Abdul Qadir Gilani and his friend Zain Sukhera.Qadir Galiani is accused of taking luxury Land Cruiser from Rao Shakeel Ahmed as kickback for getting him appointed as DG Haj while Zain Sukhera is accused of facilitating Qadir in the delivery of vehicle. Another accused in the Haj scam is former Establishment Secretary Ismail Qureshi who notified the appointment of Rao Shakeel. Yousaf Raza Gilani's name has recently surfaced in Haj scam.
