Left FBR due to pressures from unseen forces: ex-chairman Shabbar Zaidi

Former chairperson FBR Shabbar Zaidi on Thursday tweeted that he left the Federal Bureau of Revenue (FBR) due to “pressures from disguised mafia”, among other reasons.

Taking to Twitter, the ex FBR chairperson spoke about his appearance on a talkshow Wednesday night where he revealed his experience of running the tax regulatory authority.

“Glad to see politico social awareness in the masses. Just shared some thoughts on ‘Dunya Kamran Khan Key Sath’ yesterday night. Public listened, that is enough. I left FBR, pressures from disguised mafia, hypocrisy of so called intelligentsia. Imran Khan on right path. With him,” he tweeted.

 He urged Prime Minister Imran Khan to “re-examine” the government’s decision to move the Pakistan International Airlines’ (PIA) headquarters from Karachi to Islamabad.

“Having been directly associated with the company for over 30 years I do not see cogent reason. Imran Khan Sahib is suggested to re-examine,” he wrote.

The FBR chairperson made headlines a couple of days ago when he revealed that Pakistanis own $150bn in overseas bank accounts and are earning peanuts in the wake of lower interest rates.

Zaidi had made this startling disclosure during a online program on Tuesday.

He had said the time has come for these businessmen to think about bringing back the huge sum of money to Pakistan.

Zaidi recalled his meeting with a renowned Pakistani businessmen in which he named the Pakistanis who had stored money in dollars abroad in countries like Malta.
