ISLAMABAD: On the issue of good governance, Secretary to Prime Minister Fuwad Hassan Fuwad, on behalf of Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, has sought explanation from Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) Chairman Tariq Mehmood Pasha regarding the appointment of  five ‘corrupt’ officers in field formations namely Abdul Hamid Anjum, (BS-19), Sajid Hussain Arain,(BS-18), Abdul Hamid Abr, (BS-18), Jawahar Ali Shah, (BS-18)and Ansar Majeed, Inland Revenue Audit Officer.

He mentioned to the chairman that these officers were proceeded against under the government servants (Efficiency and Discipline) Rules 1973 on serious charges of corruption and misconduct, but no action is being taken against them and were either reinstated after the dismissal from service or were given only minor penalties despite the fact that charges against them had been proved beyond reasonable doubt in enquiries, and that to make it worse, these officers have now been assigned lucrative field positions.

He said prime minister has been informed that these officers of the FBR with embarrassing, compromised reputations for integrity and general conduct are leading some of the most important establishments of the FBR.

He directed chairman for further action accordingly and submit a report for perusal of the prime minister.
