Bank Loans Write-Off: A comparison of PPP, PML-N and General Musharraf

According to statistics by the State Bank of Pakistan, there are glaring differences in terms of fiscal irregularities between elected governments and military governments in Pakistan.  Government of General Pervez Musharraf appears to be most corrupt followed by the right wing government of PML-N. Here are the SBP statistics which were also discussed by Munno Bhai in his op-ed in Daily Jang today (provided below):

The loan write-offs, in just seven years (2000-2006) of General (retd) Pervez Musharraf’s rule crossed the figure of Rs 125 billion, whereas only Rs 30 billion credits were waived during the reign of the elected regimes of Muhammad Khan Junejo, Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif between 1985 and 1999.

The sources further disclosed that during the two tenures of Nawaz Sharif (1990-93 and 1997-99) Rs 22.35 billion loans were written-off.

During Sharif’s first tenure, a total of Rs 2.39 billion was written-off, while during his second stint in power, around Rs 19.96 billion was waived off.

Interestingly, the written-off loans during the two tenures of Nawaz Sharif constituted approximately 74.5 per cent of the total of Rs 30.18 billion written-off between 1986 and 1999.

During the two tenures of late Benazir Bhutto, a total of Rs 7.23 billion loans was written-off, constituting 24.2 per cent of the total written-off loans. While an amount of Rs 0.49 billion was waived off during her first tenure, an amount to the tune of Rs 6.74 billion was written off during her second term.

  • Our two-timer (Nawaz Sharif) wields a lot of power. No, I am not referring to the electric power stolen for the election campaign of Lahore’s NA-123 elections. This is absolutely inconsequential and all the ruckus about it is a waste of time. The amount of electric power gobbled before to run the steel mills may run into thousands of megawatts, so why worry about peanuts?

    Let us look at the assets that allegedly belong to our two-timer: “The Raiwind estate spread over several thousand acres; Ittefaq Sugar Mills set up in 1982; Brothers Steel in 1983; Brothers Textile Mills in 1986; Brothers Sugar Mills Ltd in 1986; Ittefaq Textile Units in 1987; Khalid Siraj Textile Mills in 1988; Ramzan Buksh Textiles in 1987; and Farooq Barkat (Pvt) Ltd in 1985.”

    This is obvious and ‘tangible’, but there are said to be other ‘intangible’ but useful ‘assets’. The examples are quoted: $ 60 million from the famous road contract known as GT road (connecting Lahore-Islamabad); $ 140 million in unsecured loans from Pakistan’s State Bank to fund companies owned or controlled by the two-timer. He did not pay the loans back to the bank, instead got them pardoned from President Muhammad Rafiq Tarar. Rs 60 million from government rebates on sugar exported by mills controlled by him and his business associates, Rs 58 million from inflated prices paid for imported wheat from the US and Canada. There may be an endless list of gains by using authority, gains in taking over foreign exchange, levying of duties after the Ittefaq Group imports and so on, and of course the prime properties in London and elsewhere.

    If all the above-mentioned is true, then I do not actually have the accounting ability, or the accounting expertise to add up the total value of these assets. My calculator is non-professional and has digits only up to some billions, not as many as needed in this case. But still, on record or declared, there is almost nothing in the name of the great two time prime minister.

  • Not all gloom and doom

    A review of the macro-economic performance of the current government

    By Ahmad Ali Khan and Shehryar Butt

    Soon after this government assumed power in March 2008, Pakistan was enveloped by a staggering macro-economic crisis, largely a legacy of the previous government’s economic decisions. It is well recognised that the long spell of growth in recent years was achieved on the back of an aggressive current account deficit, which was financed from foreign investment, privatisation proceeds and foreign capital from the international market. There was a significant slow down in exports and non-investment imports were rising. This excessive growth in imports and significant expansion in development spending in sectors that will not have immediate returns — such as higher education — were made possible with a conscious effort to keep the nominal exchange rate stable and interest rates low.

    While an over-ruled exchange rate created anti-export bias, the low interest rate includes misplaced notion of extra fiscal space, which was used to justify increased development spending. There is no evidence though that consumption was promoted at the expense of of investment, as both these expenditures have shown stable trends during the period.

    In the days following the PPP-led coalition taking control of the rudder, Pakistan’s currency was losing value hand over fist, foreign-exchange reserves covered barely three months of imports; and the cost of ensuring our sovereign debt against default was almost 1000 basis points (10%). Indeed the Economist reported on Oct 23 “The economy is close to freefall. Inflation is running at about 30%. The rupee has devalued by about 25% in just three months. The fiscal deficit is a whopping 10% of GDP. Foreign-exchange reserves cover just nine weeks of imports. A $500m Eurobond matures next February, but the market has already decided it is junk. The country needs at least $3 billion in short order, and a further $10 billion over the next two years to plug a balance-of-payments gap. Without it, default abroad might well coincide with political anarchy at home.”

    Amusingly, however we are today one of the few countries in the world that enjoys more macroeconomic stability now than in September when the bankruptcy of a major investment bank was the first brick to fall in the collapse of the global financial system.

    So how has a country, which was written off to default, deserted by its allies and with seemingly no ladder to salvation, been able to weather a storm of such magnificent proportions, and come out, limbs intact, seemingly no worse for the wear? It all starts and ends with the government. It began with the much talked about privatisation ( most notably the Qadirpur Gas Fields). However with the steel mills issue still fresh in the public’s memory there was much opposition raised, and rightly so, against hawking national assets in desperation. Once privatisation was no longer an option, the government readied the begging bowl and our leaders travelled the world from end to end, pleading our case. However they were coolly rebuffed by all our “most allied allies”. Summing up, to quote Mr. Shaukat Tarin, “All roads led to IMF”.

    An IMF programme is an arrangement that is quite different from a high street loan. By definition, it is a policy loan, meaning that the borrower country agrees to accept a set of policies that would ensure macroeconomic stability in short run and engender growth in the medium term so that its ability to service future obligations is ensured. This has its benefits and its drawbacks. Indeed autonomy of devising fiscal policy is reduced and impinges on a country’s policy choices, possibly slowing growth; however the flip side is that government is forced to take measures that while being beneficial, are unpopular, such a withdrawing subsides.

    On this account, luckily, Pakistan was better placed. Even though we went to the fund when it was inevitable, our prior commitment to remove the huge subsidies on oil and electricity, which were in the first place at least a major cause behind our economic woes, significantly reduced the need for taking any painful measures before the programme was approved. Increased foreign exchange was made possible due to more home remittances, which was reflective of greater confidence in the macroeconomic situation of the country as well as foreign deposits attracted by high interest rates. The only sticking point that took considerable negations was the need for further tightening of monetary policy. As mentioned earlier, Fund had thought a much higher increase in interest rate was required to fight the rising inflation, whereas we thought such a large increase was unwarranted. However, now, increased macroeconomic breathing space has helped nudge rates down.

    There has been a change of tone in the world press as well as evidenced by The Economist, three weeks ago, “After depreciating by 13.7% against the US dollar in 2008, the Pakistan rupee stabilized following the finalization of the IMF assistance package ( and) rising investor confidence. Inflationary risks have abated. The Pakistan government’s latest Economic Survey put the fiscal deficit in the fiscal year 2008/09 (July- June) at a provisional 4.3% of GDP. Year-on-year consumer price inflation fell to 13.1% in June, from 17.2% in April. Inflation has beeon on a declining trend since November 2008 and will continue to slow… while reduced government borrowing from the central bank will also reduce inflationary pressures. We expect the annual average inflation rate to fall sharply from 20.3% in 2008 to 12% in 2009, and improving economic stability in 2010 should see inflation moderate further, to 5.5%, in that year.”

    While these efforts and the subsequent successes are appreciable, we must not forget, to quote the sporting cliché that we must not take our eyes off the ball, except there are several balls speeding toward us. The first fear is that the fiscal discipline, coupled with the impact of the global recession, will stifle growth. Meanwhile, the government’s need to contain the fiscal deficit means that public consumption growth also will be significantly curtailed. Although private consumption growth will provide support to the economy, it is estimated that real GDP will grow by just 2.8% in 2009/10, down from 3.7% in 2008/09. GDP growth will accelerate to just 4.4% in 2010/11, driven largely by greater investment as financial constraints ease.

    Secondly, Pakistan’s economy is threatened by the deterioration of the security situation. In large swathes of the country, the battle against the Islamist insurgency has escalated almost to the point of civil war, with the army having launched large-scale offensives against the local offshoot of the militant fundamentalist Taliban movement. With the threat to national security in the foreground, issues of economic management are often put on the back-burner. In addition to the social and cultural burdens of the movement, the economic cost cannot be overstated. Indeed some estimates put the figure as high as $35 billion, which makes the much trumped $7 billion Kerry-Lugar bill seem like a joke.

    Thirdly, self-reliance in commodities is a very important goal. Lastly, we must not forget that this loan from the IMF is still just a loan. In the end we are piling on further to our already vast external debt, and care must be taken to use the mount wisely and pay it back in a timely fashion, so as to ensure that it does not become another obstacle in long term macroeconomic stability.

    As these persistent risks suggest, Pakistan may have averted a crisis, but it is far from out of the woods and tough, unpopular decisions will have to be made. Pakistan’s acceptance of IMF assistance has simplified the task of the government and the central bank to a degree, in the sense that these institutions will lose a considerable amount of autonomy in economic policymaking, which subsequently enforces a degree of fiscal discipline that would otherwise not be adhered to.

  • ۔ وہ کوئی نواز شریف ہیں کہ قرض اتارو ، ملک سنوارو سکیم کے لئے ایک کروڑ کا عطیہ دیا تو سفید بالوں والے مدیر کے مطابق چیک پر کسی اور کے دستخط تھے۔ لینے والا نہیں ، وہ دینے والا آدمی ہے۔ شوکت خانم ہسپتال کو اب تک دس کروڑ روپے دے چکا، حالانکہ اس کی آمدن کبھی دو کروڑ روپے سالانہ سے زیادہ نہ ہوئی۔ رہی ٹیکس کی بات تو نواز شریف کی آمدن اس کا بیسواں حصہ بھی نہیں لیکن سب باخبر جانتے ہیں کہ صرف برطانیہ کی کمرشل پراپرٹی میں ان کی سرمایہ کاری 500 ملین پاؤنڈ ہے۔ دبئی میں الگ، سوئٹزر لینڈ میں اس قدر کہ ایک سوس بینکر کو وہ قیمتی قالین تحفے میں دینا چاہتے تھے۔ سودا نہ ہو سکا، قالین ساز ایک لاکھ ڈالر مانگتا تھا۔
    1993ء میں نون لیگ کے ٹکٹ جاری کرنے کا مرحلہ آیا تو وار برٹن کے چوہدری واجد علی سے میاں صاحب نے کہا : ہم آپ کو ٹکٹ نہیں دے سکتے۔ آپ پر کرپشن کا الزام ہے۔ چوہدری صاحب حیران رہ گئے۔ کہا: بدعنوان میں ہوں؟ پھر جیسا کہ ایک چینل پر حفیظ اللہ خان نے کہا، پنجابی میں سوال کیا ”میاں صاحب ! تہاڈی فیکٹریاں بُہتے دیندیاں نیں“ (آپ کی فیکٹریاں کیا بے تحاشا بچے جنتی ہیں) ۔ حامد میر کے ساتھ ایک انٹرویو میں منی لانڈرنگ کا تو وہ خود اعتراف فرما چکے۔ تسلیم کیا کہ سعودی عرب میں فیکٹری لگائی۔ روپیہ کس طرح منتقل ہوا؟ کسی بینک کے ذریعے؟ کیا ٹیکس ادا کیا؟ عدالت ایک دن سوال کرے گی کہ حدیبیہ پیپر مل کا 30 ملین ڈالر کا قرض لندن میں کس طرح ادا ہوا۔ روپیہ کس طرح برطانیہ پہنچایا گیا۔

  • Right under the nose of CJ Iftikhar M Chaudhry? nothing was said and done by the same Judiciary when the below mentioned Loot and Plunder was going on during the General Musharraf Martial Law from 1999 to 2008.

    ISLAMABAD: In a country where over 40 per cent of the population is said to be languishing under the poverty line with families surviving on less than $2 a day, the shameful revelation of the filthy rich getting loans worth over Rs100 billion written-off owing to their formidable clout is shocking the nation. And this shameful list carries some of the biggest names of our power elite. The names of Ch Shujaat and Ch Pervez Elahi were found among about 1,000 influential businessmen and Army men who got a total of Rs18 billion loans written-off from the government-owned banks during the first three years of the military government. The list was submitted in the NA when Zafarullah Jamali was the prime minister and Shaukat Aziz was the finance minister. The first loan of Rs70 million was outstanding against the Punjab Sugar Mills and was written off by the National Bank of Pakistan along with the actual loan amount. The mill was owned by Chaudhry Shujaat Husssain, Chaudhry Mansoor Elahi, Chaudhry Pervez Elahi, Chaudhry Gulzar Mohammad, Chaudhry Wajahat Hussain, Chaudhry Sabhat Elahi, Mrs Qisara Elahi (wife of Chaudhry Pervez Elahi), Mrs Kasur Hussain (wife of Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain), Mrs Khalida Begum (wife of Gulzar Muhammad).

    The second loan of Rs15 million was written off by the UBL outstanding against Punjab Sugar Mills. The beneficiaries were once again Ch Manzoor Elahi, Ch Shujaat Hussain, Pervez Elahi, Wajahat Hussain, Shafaat Hussain, Gulzar Ahmed and Mrs Qaisra Elahi, Khalida Begum, and Kauser Hussain. The UBL once again wrote off another loan of Rs34.1 million outstanding against the Spaco Private Limited. The beneficiaries were the same — Ch Pervez Elahi, Shujaat Hussain, Manzoor Elahi, Wajahat Hussain, Sabahat Elahi, Mrs Kauser Hussain, Qaisra Elahi. It may be added that these loans were written off after declaring their industrial establishments as “sick industry or on the pretext of bankruptcy.” Many of them denied having got their loans written-off.

    The political sources claimed that Shahbaz Sharif and Nawaz Sharif knew this troubling fact about the Chaudhrys of Gujrat. Even Imran Khan had been showing the official documents of another bank, which had also written off loans to get the Chaudhrys disqualified from contesting the elections. But his desperate pleas were never entertained by the Election Commission of Pakistan courtesy the might and clout these cousins enjoyed during the early years of General Pervez Musharraf in power. The sources said, on the basis of their own knowledge about the Chaudhrys loan write off, the Sharif brothers were agitating the issue of loan write-off in the media with the public demand to put all the loan beneficiaries on trial after recovering the written-off amounts. The mighty Chaudhrys of Gujrat — Ch Shujaat Hussain, Ch Pervez Elahi and their family members — reportedly got three different bank loans of Rs120 million written off from the National Bank and United Bank of Pakistan during their heady days of power. This has been revealed in the official record of the National Assembly library, which has now formally confirmed that several top politicians and their family members had quietly got several bank loans written off, which had been outstanding against their sugar and textile mills and other industrial units.

    These bank loans were mainly written off by the state-run National Bank of Pakistan and United Bank Limited in the past. The official record available with The News, which was placed in the NA in the last one decade, revealed that a total of Rs30 billion loans were written off between 1985-2002, which had been outstanding against the top politicians and powerful industrial groups of the country. The list was compiled by the then caretaker government of 1993 led by Moin Qureshi. In 2007, Auditor General of Pakistan revealed in its report that during the period 2002-2007, a sum of Rs54 billion was written off by Musharraf government. Thus, total figure had reached to Rs85 billions. But, now the recent official report to the NA during the question hour revealed that the total figure of written-off loans had finally crossed over Rs100 billion, after adding the loan amounts written off during two years of PPP government since 2008.

    The official list of loan write-off beneficiaries of different periods since 1985 to 2002 revealed that former speaker Gohar Ayub Khan’s family and former Chief Minister Balochistan Jaam Yousuf, are also among other prominent politicians, who got the loans written off from the banks. The three mighty business families of Pakistan are also among the beneficiaries of these loan write offs in the past. The former housing minister of General Pervez Musharraf -Abbas Sarfraz is also among the beneficiaries who got a massive loan against his sugar mill written off. Lt General Habibullah and Brig M Jan are among the list.

    The Saifullah family of Lucky Marwat got four loans written off from different banks. The names of Anwar Saifullha Khan, Javed Saifullah, Hamayun Saifullah, Arbab Saddaullha Khan, Shah Jehan Khan, Nisar Khan are part of the list submitted in the NA in 1994 in response to a question by MNA Barjees Tahir. First, the Saifullah brothers got loans written off against their mill— Ms Kohat Textile Mills from the National Bank. The matriarch of the Saifullah family, Mrs Kalsoom Saifullah also got a loan of Rs12 million written off from NBP against Ms Frontier Towel Works, Kohat. Industrial bank also wrote off loan of Rs26 million of Javed Saifullah, Salim Saifullah, Hamayun Saifullah and others against Kohat Textile Mills. The MCB also wrote off loan against the Kohat Textile Mill. Jatoi family of Sindh also got a loan of Rs6.7 million written off from UBL. The beneficiary was Dr Ghafar Jatoi and his brothers. Leghari family also got Rs67 million loans written off from UBL. The beneficiaries included Jafar Khan Leghari, Jamil Ahmed Khan Leghari, Yousuf Khan Leghari, Tariq Khan Leghari, Atta Mohammad Leghari, etc.

    Saigal group got the loan written off against Omaryar Limited, Lahore. The group got another loan of Rs4 million written off from the UBL. A loan of Rs10.3 million was written off by Investment Corporation of Pakistan. Iqbal Z Ahmed, Mrs Saira Ahmed also got a loan of Rs5.5 million written off from United Bank of Pakistan. Another small loan of Rs1.4 million got written off from UBL against Hassan Ali and company. A loan of Rs18 million was also written off against Hashoo Holdings.

    Meanwhile, investigations conducted by this correspondent after going through the official record of the National Assembly Secretariat, where all these loan documents were placed from time to time since 1994, even Daewoo Corporation of Pakistan was one of the beneficiaries of such big loans written-off by the government banks. National Bank of Pakistan had written off a loan of Rs10 million against Daewoo. The loan was outstanding against Kim Waoo Choong, Kim Joun Sung, Lee Woo Bok, Yoon Nuke NEON, Chui Myoung Kul. The list showed that Karachi-based businessmen have been treated with exceptional kindness by the National Bank of Pakistan. According to the list of such people whose loans and principal amounts were written-off during the last three years, National Bank of Pakistan wrote off billion of rupees from taxpayers’ accounts. Most of the written-off loans went to the textile and industrial giants of the country owned by mighty businessmen, politically influential, former bureaucrats and military officers.

    The big industrialists like Adamjee Industries owned by Farooq Sheikh, Mrs Shireen Farooq, Mumtaz Sheikh, Tahir Sheikh got Rs448 million written-off from the NBP. Mohib Textile owned by Asif Saigol also got Rs1.1 billion written-off in 2002. The other big names included in the list are First Tawakkal Modaraba owned by Abdul Qadir Tawakkal, Mohammad Rafiq Tawakkal, Alif Husain Mooney, Abid Hussain Rs621 million written-off, National Frutctose Limited owned by Shairullah Durrani got Rs681million written-off, Glamour Textile Mills owned by Iftikhar Ahmed Malik got Rs533 million written-off and others. Two foreign nationals also got the loans written-off. Pakland Cement got Rs10 million written off, Cast N Link owned by Anwar Ahmed got Rs159 million written-off. Taha Spinning limited got Rs64 million written off.

    Following is the list of mighty individuals and business tycoons whose loans were written-off in majority of cases along with principal amount from National Bank of Pakistan (NBP).

    ISLAMABAD: As if the generous writing off of loans worth Rs59.94billion during the General Pervez Musharraf reign wasn’t bad enough, now official documents show that hundreds of these borrowers were even given these loans with such casualness and deliberate neglect that not even the national identity cards of the borrowers were demanded by the banks, what to talk of other collateral and sureties. The official record of these written off loans submitted to the National Assembly and available with The News revealed that in an unbelievable large number of cases the lending institutions, a bank and another (now defunct) financial entity, had issued huge loans to the individuals without even getting their National Identity Cards (NICs) as per prudential requirements. The bank has not given any reason about how the loans were issued to these business parties and the individuals without getting their proper NICs as per requirements. One official has commented that this was not possible without the active collaboration of the bank officials as no bank could give loan to anyone without NICs. The following cases reveal just another ugly aspect of this sordid plunder of national wealth where, barring a few genuine deserving cases, billions were siphoned away by hundreds of corrupt businessmen colluding with equally corrupt bankers. There were some genuine cases where loans were written off in accordance with the rules. In all cases listed below, none of the cited borrowers had been forced by the lending institutions to submit their ID cards, an otherwise basic requirement.

    The ID cards of five directors of Ms Bawani Industries were missing. This loan was ultimately written off. One foreign national Saral Dynamic Hardware Bobignv too managed to get a loan of Rs5.5million and later got his total outstanding Rs6.4million written off including the principal amount and Rs0.8million mark up. The loan was given in foreign currency to this foreign national. The two banks wrote off billions of rupees during the Musharraf era and in one case, the defunct bank wrote off a loan of Rs137million outstanding against four individuals.

    First Tawakal Modrab Karachi got Rs 628million written off while the borrowers—-Abdul Qadir Tawakal, Rafiq Tawakal,Ali Husasin Mooney and Abid Husain did not even bother submitting their NICs. Shahfa Corporation Lahore and its owners Saluddin Ahmed Sahaf, Wajiddin Mahmood Shaf also got Rs146million written off. Regnet Dyeing and Finishing Mills also got Rs 91million written including Rs50million principal loan. Fatima Foods Lahore also got Rs 80million written off with Rs 40million principal loan waived off. National Garments also got Rs 335million written off including Rs 140million principal amount. In Multan Mohib textile got Rs 1.17billion written off including principal amount of Rs546million. In Karachi Bawani Industries got Rs 70million written off including 11.3million principal amount. The names of the fathers of borrowers are not on official record of the bank who got this loan written off. The papers show that even a London based n ex-employee of a bank, Abdul Haleem also got Rs 2.744million written off and now the bank says it did not have even the ID card of its own former employee available in record. His principal loan was Rs 2.7million which was written off.

    Adamjee Industries also got Rs 48million written off including Rs168million principal amount. Farooq Sheikh, Mrs Shereen Farooq, Zafar Sheikh, Mumtaz Saleem, Tahir Sehikh got Rs 168million loan and got the whole principal wavied off. They also got the mark up of Rs225million written off too. Master Rubber Tyer owners Fayyaz Malik and Farooq Malik got 52m written off. Even an industrial unit Ms Metropolitan National Textile Karachi owned by Sikandar Ali Jatoi, Mazhar Ali Jatoi, Jamal Hassan, SM Masood was given the loan without any NICs. A sum of Rs190million outstanding the Jaoti family was also written off. The papers showed that even, the owners of Daweeo Corporation -Kim Woo Choong, Kim Joun Sung, Lee Woo Bok, Yoon Nuke Neon, Chug Myuong Kul did not submit their Ids at the time of obtaining Rs10.8million loan. Interestingly, the same amount was later written off by the bank. They got principal amount written off in addition to Rs2.3million mark up payable against this loan.

    Even Ch Shujaat Hussain, Pervez Elahi and their family members who got Rs37.987 loan written off never produced their national identity cards. Hearts International Rawalpindi got Rs0.9million written off while the bank did not have the IDs of Dr Major Gen retired Zulifkar Ali Khan, Dr Abdus Qudus Khan, Mohammad Rafi, Shamim Ashraf Khan, Naheed Mashud Kiani, Rahat Azfa. Johoson and Philips also got Rs 64 million loan written off and there is no record of NICs of the borrowers-Bilal Ahmed Qureshi, Raja Ahmed Khan, Habibulah Baig, Rasid Y Chinoy, Abdul Rehman Khan, Syed Abdul Noor. Johnson and Philips again got another loan of Rs26million written off and once again the same borrowers did not give their NICs. Ahmed Chemical limited owners Aftab Khan, Jehan Ara Khan, Mahjabeen Ahmed, Sabiuddin Ahmed, Iqbal Ahmed Khan, Iram Aftab, Aftab Ahmed Khan NICs are not available. They got Rs0.6million written off. Ksornos Corporation Lahore also got Rs 4.3million written off. Again NICs of Sh Abdul Hafeez, Sh Imran Hafeez, Sh Salman Hafeez, Sh Nauman Hafeez, Qari Khalid Mahmood, Shahbaz Murad and Zahida Hafeez are not available in the record. Zodesh Limited got Rs 40million written off. The borrowers Zoraia Lashari, Imrana Lashari, Ms Lubna Lashari and Hayat Khan did not give NICs.

  • ISLAMABAD: If you thought that only civilian and politicians got billions of rupees worth of loans written off from state-owned banks, you thought wrong. Records now show that many top military officers got their loans written off. This lucky lot included five lieutenant generals, two major generals and a battalion of other senior uniformed beneficiaries, with some Army (mis)managed institutions to boot. The Army controlled institutions also got their share from the national plunder with the Army Welfare Trust (AWT) got a massive loan written off worth Rs 14.49 million from a state-owned financial entity, which is now defunct (hardly a surprising fate).

    Some of the cases were, however, genuine as their loans were written off in accordance with rules.

    According to the official list of loan write-off beneficiaries tabled in the National Assembly, Lt General (retd) Ali Kuli Khan and his father Lt General Habibullah Khan had their loans written off. General Kuli had shot to prominence when he was ignored by the then prime minister Nawaz Sharif in favour of Gen Musharraf in a bid to succeed General Jehangir Karamat as the next COAS. The list shows that General Kuli Khan got two loans written off from the Allied Bank of Pakistan while he was still serving in the Army in the mid 90s. The first loan was of Rs1.8 million and second was Rs1.6 million outstanding against Janana De Malucho Textile Mills Limited, Kohat owned by his father General (retd) Habibullah Khan. General Kuli was then one of the directors of the textile mills. After the death of General Habib, he became the chief executive of this textile unit. General Habib, too, was a beneficiary of this loan write off. It’s a little known fact that Chief of the Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani had once served as the staff officer to General Ali Kuli Khan during his stint as Chairman Joint Chiefs of staff in 1998 when Jahangir Karamat was the Chief of Army Staff (COAS). General Kuli shot to prominence within the ruling political circles when he was heard opposing the forced resignation of General Kamarat and had indicated to make Nawaz Sharif ‘fall in line’ if he became the next COAS. Later, Gen Kuli Khan had denied this charge in an interview with this correspondent. But, Ch Nisar Ali Khan had also confirmed to this correspondent in an interview that Ali Kuli was not elevated to the post of the Army chief precisely for this reason after some of his quotes were conveyed to Nawaz Sharif. Talking to The News from Peshawar, General (retd) Ali Kuli Khan said that he “did not remember” getting any loan written off by him during his military service. General Kuli said, “There might be some rescheduling of the loans by the banks outstanding against the mills.” He said only the politicians get loans written off by using their clout. Of course, general can dare anyone argue with that logic.

    Lt General (retd) K M Azhar, who later became active in politics, of Rex Breen Batteries got Rs16 million written off by the Agriculture Development Bank. His business partners were Misbah Azhar, Sward Azhar, Ahmed Jamal Siddiqui, Syed Ijaz Ahmed Hashmi, Mauro Dr Bashir Ahmed. Lt General (retd) SA Burkey and Lt General (retd) Safdar Butt also figure amongst the happy generals benefiting from the state institutions generosity. Another prominent name on the list is that of Air Marshal (retd) A Rahim Khan. Air Marshal (retd) Viqar Azeem also got Rs15 million written off from Pakistani Kuwait Investment Co. Lt General (retd) SA Burkey, Major General Zahid Ali Akbar, Brig MM Mahmood, Begum Omar Mahmood, Saeed Ahmed also got loans written off. Gohar Ayub Khan, brother of General Kuli Khan—Raza Kuli Khan also got a loan of Rs7.2 million written off against Rehana Woolen Mills. Tariq Ayub Khan, Zahid Ahsan, Ahsan Khan were the directors of the mills whose loan was written off by the financial institution SAPICO.

    Major General (retd) M Mumtaz from Abbottabad, Lt Colonel (retd) Shaukat and Major (retd) Tajuddin Rs1.2 million, Major General (retd) Ghaziuddn are also in the list. Major General (retd) G Umar also got Rs8.5 million written off from the Agriculture Development Bank. Lt General (retd) Safdar Butt, Major General (retd) Abdullah Malik, Brig (retd) M M Mahmood, Col (retd) M Zafar Khan, Mohammad Afzal Khan, Mrs Hamida Farhat also got benefits from the UBL. General (retd) Abdullah had resigned after the military coup of General Zia and had opposed the military take over of July 1977. Talking to The News, Brig (retd) Mahmood denied that his industrial unit EFF, EFF Industries had got the loan written off. He clarified that he had entered into an agreement with the bank but this package was never implemented until recently. The list also names Brig (retd) M A Baig and Qamar Ahmad, BA Siddiqi, Zubair Rashid, Mohammad Sadiq Baig, Riazur Rehman, Mrs Mamomnna Khatoon, Mrs Mehr Riaz, Mr Taufiq Ahmed Rs 1.09 million (UBL). Lt-Col (retd) Ch M Anis Ahmed, Col Atta ullah, Shahid Atta, Mst Qamar un Nisa Rs 2.6 million, Irfan Rice Mills of Col (retd) Nazar Hussain Rs 1.6 million, Mehr Textile Mills, Chakwal, Col Mohammad Ayub Khan, Ch Nisar Ali Khan, Ch Asad Ali Khan, Mrs Sultana Zakia, Mohammad Nawaz, Ch Ghulam Ali Khan.

    ISLAMABAD: A loan of Rs3 billion against the Sharif brothers remains outstanding despite a lapse of about ten years when the physical assets of four industrial units — Ittefaq Foundries, Brothers Steel, Ittefaq Brothers and Ilyas Enterprises — were surrendered to nine lending banks, who haven’t got a penny back since 1998. The Sharif brothers were lauded in the national press in 1998 for surrendering their physical assets to nine banks but in actual terms, these banks did not get a single penny back after one of their (Sharif’s) own directors moved the court and got a stay order against selling of these assets. The stay order in favour of Ittefaq Brothers remains effective till date. Meanwhile, the representatives and legal experts of these nine banks are said to have recently met at Lahore to decide a new course of action to recover the loans from the Sharif brothers who have been shown as “defaulters” of the banks. The National Bank of Pakistan is the worst affected bank with a stuck up loan of Rs1.5 billion. Earlier, in his capacity as Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif in a highly charged televised address to the nation, had announced to surrender all the physical assets of Itefaq Foundries, Brothers Steels, Ittefaq Brothers and Ilyas Enterprises to the nine banks, whom the Sharifs reportedly owed Rs3.09billion. The process of selling the Ittefaq Foundries was stopped when one of the relatives of Sharif Brothers moved an application in the Lahore High Court in 2005 and the matter is still pending with the courts without any payment to the concerned banks.

    According to official documents available with The News, in 1998, the directors of Ittefaq Group offered to surrender these units to settle the claims of all the banks instead of making cash payments to settle their accounts. Nawaz Sharif as the prime minister had then announced to hand over these assets to the Lahore High Court to monitor the sale of assets of his units. The names of directors of Ittefaq Foundries are Mian Tariq Shafi, Mian Javed Shafi, Mian Abbas Shafi, Mian Riaz Miraj, Mian Shahbaz Sharif, Mian Yousuf Aziz and Mian Nawaz Sharif. Likewise, the directors of Brothers Steels included Mian Yousuf Aziz, Mian Yahya Siraj, Mrs Nusrat Shahbaz, Mian Naseem Tariq, Mian Memoona Idris, and Hussain Barkat. The directors of Ittefaq Brothers were Mian SHahbaz Sharif, Mian Mohamamd Idris and Mian Pervaiz Shafi.

    According to the official papers, Shahbaz Sharif and Nawaz Sharif owed bank loan of Rs1.5billion to National Bank of Pakistan, HBL Rs717million, UBL Rs340million, MCB Rs239million, Ist Punjab Mudraba Rs110millino, Bank of Punjab Rs61million, ADBP Rs58million, PICIC Rs17million and ICP Rs8million. The papers reveal that when the assets of these four defaulting units were surrendered to the LHC, in a bid to settle their claims all the banks unanimously agreed to get the court order to this deal. The documents showed that while hearing this application under section 284, the Lahore High Court ordered to constitute a committee comprising 3 members, a representative of banks, a chartered accountant and an advocate being the court representative. The mandate of the committee was to take the possession of the said units of the Ittefaq Group, to protect and preserve their assets and to auction them through court procedure. Under the said committee a bid of Rs2.48billion was received which was about half a billion rupees less than the actual loan money. The bid was submitted to the court in 2005. However, the final court order for auction has not been yet issued till today following the petition filed by some of directors of the Ittefaq Group. In 2006, committee member Iqbal Haider Rehman after his appointment as additional judge Lahore High Court was replaced by Pervaiz Akthar Malik, advocate and Kamran Amin NBP, due to change of his assignment in the banks, was replaced by Mr Salaim Ansar. Now this committee comprised Salim Ansar, Khajwa Abdul Qadir and Pervaiz Akhtar Malik. The official papers show that since filing of the bid of Rs2.48billion with the court in 2005, duly accepted by all the banks and recommended by the committee, the matter was still stuck up at the Lahore High Court for an order and despite all efforts of the committee, no progress has been made. The documents show that several meetings of the creditor banks had been convened by NBP at Lahore where the legal experts other than the dealing councils of the banks were also invited to consider the alternative course of action to expedite this matter. However, legal complications have arisen to such an extent that no concrete solution of the problem could so far be unanimously adopted. Talking to The News, president NBP Ali Raza confirmed that a sum of Rs1.5billion was outstanding against the Sharif brothers as the loan was yet to be settled. He said the physical assets were surrendered by the directors of these units but the court had yet to give its approval to the bidding price of Rs2.4billion obtained in 2005. Talking to The News, PML-N spokesman MNA Ahsan Iqbal said that there was an understanding with the banks in 1998 and the physical assets were handed over to them as part of “settlement”. He said actually the Sharif brothers never got their loans written off and the matter was declared “technical default” after the banks were put under pressure during the second government of PPP to seek the payment of loans prematurely. He said this was a sort of “technical default” and the cases later landed in the court.

  • Was Judiciary sleeping?????

    ISLAMABAD: The main wheeler and dealer of the ISI during the 2002 elections, the then Maj-Gen Ehtesham Zamir, now retired, has come out of the closet and admitted his guilt of manipulating the 2002 elections, and has directly blamed Gen Musharraf for ordering so. Talking to The News, the head of the ISI’s political cell in 2002, admitted manipulating the last elections at the behest of President Musharraf and termed the defeat of the King’s party, the PML-Q, this time “a reaction of the unnatural dispensation (installed in 2002).” Zamir said the ISI together with the NAB was instrumental in pressing the lawmakers to join the pro-Musharraf camp to form the government to support his stay in power. Looking down back into the memory lane and recalling his blunders which, he admitted, had pushed the country back instead of taking it forward, Zamir feels ashamed of his role and conduct. Massively embarrassed because he was the one who negotiated, coerced and did all the dirty work, the retired Maj-Gen said he was not in a position to become a preacher now when his own past was tainted.

    He said the country would not have faced such regression had the political management was not carried out by the ISI in 2002. But he also put some responsibility of the political disaster on the PML-Q as well. The former No: 2 of the ISI called for the closure of political cell in the agency, confessing that it was part of the problem due to its involvement in forging unnatural alliances, contrary to public wishes. Zamir’s blaming Musharraf for creating this unnatural alliance rings true as another former top associate of Musharraf, Lt-Gen (retd) Jamshed Gulzar Kiyani has already disclosed that majority of the corps commanders, in several meetings, had opposed Musharraf’s decision of patronising the leadership of the King’s party. “We had urged Musharraf many times during the corps commanders meeting that the PML-Q leadership was the most condemned and castigated personalities. They are the worst politicians who remained involved in co-operative scandals and writing off loans. But Musharraf never heard our advice,” Kiyani said while recalling discussions in their high profile meetings.

    He said one of their colleagues, who was an accountability chief at that time, had sought permission many times for proceeding against the King’s party top leaders but was always denied. Kiyani asked Musharraf to quit, the sooner the better, as otherwise the country would be in a serious trouble. Ma-Gen (retd) Ehtesham Zamir termed the 2008 elections ‘fairer than 2002’. He said the reason behind their fairness is that there was relatively less interference of intelligence agencies this time as compared to the last time. But he stopped short of saying that there was zero interference in the 2008 polls. “You are quite right,” he said when asked to confirm about heavy penetration of ISI into political affairs during the 2002 elections. But he said he did not do it on his own but on the directives issued by the government. Asked who directed him from the government side and if there was somebody else, not President Musharraf, he said: “Obviously on the directives of President Musharraf.” Asked if he then never felt that he was committing a crime by manipulating political business at the cost of public wishes, he said: “Who should I have told except myself. Could I have asked Musharraf about this? I was a serving officer and I did what I was told to do. I never felt this need during the service to question anyone senior to me,” he said and added that he could not defend his acts now.

    “It was for this reason that I have never tried to preach others what I did not practice. But I am of the view that the ISI’s political cell should be closed for good by revoking executive orders issued in 1975,” he said. Responding to a question regarding corruption cases that were used as pressure tactics on lawmakers, he said: “Yes! This tool was used, not only by the ISI. The NAB was also involved in this exercise.” Former corps commander of Rawalpindi, Lt-Gen (retd) Jamshed Gulzar Kiyani said majority of corps commanders had continued opposing Musharraf’s alliance with top leadership of the PML-Q. “Not just in one meeting, we opposed his alignment with these corrupt politicians in many meetings but who cared. Now Musharraf has been disgraced everywhere, thanks to his political cronies.” REFERENCE: The man, who rigged 2002 polls, spills the beans By Umar Cheema Sunday, February 24, 2008 http://www.thenews.com.pk/top_story_detail.asp?Id=13159
