Citizen Alleges Yahapalana Minister Family Obstructing Good Governance

Despite the Good Governance administration finishing three years of its five-year tenure last month, 37-year-old Wazir Ahamed, a Director of a company belonging to the family of the powerful Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) Minister – M. H. M. Fowzie, who pledged allegiance to President Maithripala Sirisena; claims that assault, death threats against him, his co-complainant and his family members and intimidation of Police officers in executing their lawful duties emanating from the Minister’s family have gone unfettered and have proved nothing but otherwise.

AHM Fowzie

Ahamed told exclusively Colombo Telegraph that with degrading good governance and rule of law and increasing intimidation, he has very little hope in law enforcement (i.e. the Police) despite his co-complainant – no less than the granddaughter of Minister A. H.M. Fowzie – Fathima Hafsa’s case against repeated acts of criminal intimidation by the Minister’s family, will come up in Magistrate Court no 03 this Friday (9 February).

“In fact my case too is coming up in March, but from the actions taken by the Police so far and personally seeing the helplessness of the Narahenpitiya OIC, we can’t expect much despite the Minister Fowzie being a senior member of the Good Governance administration. Our plea is allow course of justice to take place without any hindrance just as pledged by the crusaders of good governance,” lamented Ahamed.

He claims that although several complaints had been lodged by him and Attorney-at-Law Fathima Hafsa (no less than the granddaughter of Minister A. H.M. Fowzie) against repeated acts of criminal intimidation and threats during the last two years, the Police are unable to take action because they were lodged against a daughter, two sons and other family members of the minister.

A complaint lodged by Attorney-at-Law Fathima Hafsa recorded at CIB 179/64 at the Narahenpita Police Station on 12th January 2017, states that her uncle Namaz Fowzie intimidated and influences Police personnel preventing justice being meted out to her and Wazir Ahamed.

According to the complaint, her ex-husband Dr. Muhammed  Shazli Mowjood arrived at her residence and office of OSH Holdings (Pvt) Ltd. (of which the complainant was the largest shareholder and a Director) in order to pick their son at 1PM (two hours later than the time permitted by court) had  begun an altercation with the other Director and Co-complainant Wazir Ahamed, refusing to move his vehicle from the entrance.  According to the complaint, after verbally abusing Ahamed, Dr. Mowjood stormed into the house, began to throw things about and finally ended up striking his ex-wife and complainant (Fathima Hafsa).

According to the complainant, the strangest turn of events is that despite the Police offers who arrived at the scene witnessed the disarrayed living room and also scars visible on the face and body of Hafsa; the Narahenpita Police vehemently refused to include anything about the scars as the family of the Minister feared an immediate arrest, undoubtedly due to influence from Minister Fowzie’s son and her uncle – Namaz Fowzie.

Thereafter finally though legal action was initiated under Magistrate Court no 03 at Hultsdorf, under case no MC 75737/03/17 against Mohamed Nauzer Fowzie of No xxx Buller’s Road, Colombo 07, his sister Narmila Fowzie of No xxx, 27th Lane, Inner Flower Road, Colombo 03, and two thugs brought in by them, namely- Zeinu Mohamadu Anver Sadar of No 06, Agarawatte, Horambawa, Narammala and Lebbe Mohamed Mahir of Kekunugolla, Narammala, charging them for criminal intimidation under Section 486 of the Penal Code (read with Sec 32) threatening complainants Wazir Ahamed on 15thSeptember 2016  and Fathima Hafsa with death; none of the assailants had been arrested so far.

Despite  legal action being initiated by Ahamed and Hafsa, members of the Ministers family continue to harass and threaten the two complainants and their family members.

Wazir Ahamed claims that although he was assaulted in front of the OIC of the Narahenpita Police and both Narmila and Nawzer Fowzie uttered threats stating that they ‘will kill Ahamed’ and that ‘no Police or judge can save him’ adding that the ‘government is theirs and all these people work for them’.

Previously, after several threats by  daughter of Minister Fowzie- Narmila Fowzie, a complaint was lodge by Wazir Ahamed recorded at CIB I 207/285 at the Narahenpita Police Station on 27th August 2016 and after neglecting and ignoring  repeated notices by Police, Narmila and her brother Nauzer Fowsie who arrived at the Police Station allegedly  threatened both Ahamed with demanding the Police to settle the matter.

Speaking to Colombo Telegraph, Ahamed said that he and the granddaughter of the Minister who is the other co-complainant, only wanted Rule of Law upheld and justice being meted to him and Hafsa as both President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe have repeatedly announced that no political interference would be allowed to tamper with Rule of Law and the independence of the judiciary.

He added one of the reasons for increased intimidation is that he is privy to the hedging deal that happened when Minister Fowzie had the portfolio of Petroleum and Petroleum Resources Development and siphoning of money to offshore accounts of parties with vested interests.

According renowned Central Banker –  T. Rusiripala, the fraudulent Petroleum Hedging Deal led to the total loss estimated as Rs. 10,200.4 million according to a COPE (Committee on Public Enterprise) report submitted to Parliament in August 2016. Fortunately a claim of a sum of a staggering US$ 192 million (approximately Rs. 28,224 million) by Citi Bank filed at the London High Court of International Arbitration was rejected on the basis that the transactions were ‘fully flawed’, which otherwise would have increased the loss by250% times the loss estimated by the COPE.

“We are not talking politics but this is the money of the ordinary citizen. Just as the government arrested the suspects behind the Bond Scam, authorities should investigate and arrest the masterminds behind the infamous hedging deal. As I said, we don’t want politics but only justice, Rule of Law and Good Governance,” he said.

    This looks like a family matter. Both sides profited from the culture of impunity. Now one side finds that impunity has grades – one more than the other.
    Aspects of ‘Good Governance’ are spilling.

    Wazeer Ahmed is a lecturer at the Mercury Institute in Colombo 3 and is known to victimise young girls (his students). This article shows yet another family he is trying to tear apart just for monetary gains.Now backed by a prominent businessman in Colombo he seems to be aiming higher. He also has spun his web around the granddaughter of the minister and is living unlawfully with her.

    The truth is Muslims in Sri Lanka have no right to blame other communities from now on ,, this whole article and some Muslims commenting is a way of Allah exposing the hypocrisy of most Muslims in Sri Lanka.,no more excuses at all ,no more sympathy whatever befalls this community in future and no more excuse to blame anyone ,this community once lived with dignity have today turned to a self destructive one for the sake of only money ,nothing else and some leaders of it have taken the role of King Salune . The saddest part will be that the innocent will mostly end up paying ,like what happened in the past.

    If you take time to sit and study the History of The Muslims, since the Demise of The Prophet to date , it will surprise you to realise every single incident from loss of empires ,loss of economy ,including The Palestinian issue ,the Muslims were responsible, all due to greed , of power & wealth to sectarianism. The leaders fed the whole flock to wolves & still doing it, as long as there are willing sheep’ the rouge Sheppard will continue to feed the hungry wolves . Either the people come together as one and Wake up or be prepared to face the worse yet to come ,this Election is all about the future of the Muslims in Sri Lanka , changing your undies to red will only bleed the whole lot.

    Those who know Minister Fowzie loves him. His honesty and integrity is unquestionable. He is well respected among most of his peers. Always willing and able to assist people in all walks of life. Most successful Politicians of the past lacked a formal education. Example the first PM of Ceylon. The founder of UAE. Their wisdom and life experience compensated it. Family quarrels have to be left private and they have no bearing on how one acquires their wealth. That’s up to the Justice Department to prosecute if there is any evidence of misappropriation of public funds. Muslims, please don’t get involved in slander. If you only they knew the harm that will cause by indulging in it.

    Lo! those who love that slander should be spread concerning those who believe, theirs will be a painful punishment in the world and the Hereafter. Allah knoweth. Ye know not. (The Noble Quran 24:19)

    It is nice to see Colombo Telegraph is fearless. Fowzie and his family is always known as robbers. If I am not mistaken Nawzer was on bail for a similar case. Filthy family of poor morals. Can’t believe this. Such a pity we still allow low creatures like the fowzies to suck our blood.

    I think we need to put a stop to dirty politicians like the fowzies. Hope poeple will wake up. I am appalled by the comments. The article is about how such a cheap politician and his family is misusing the power to exert pressure on the police. But, it seems a segment is interested in slandering the victim and protecting the perpetrators. That explains the pathatic system of this country. Hopefully CT will publish this and keep up the good work.

    It is Politicians like Fowzie Who are causing the Brain Drain of Qualified and Honest Professionals from Sri Lanka.
    No, they do not go for the Sake of the Dollars! They go because of Death Threats to their Families, when they refuse to Dance to the Illegal Tunes of Corrupt and Greedy Politicians!

    Assalamu alaikkum.
    Dear Muslims! Please don’t wash your dirty linen in public. I am a physiologist based in the UAE. My father used to work in the office of Mr.Fowzie long years ago, when he was the mayor.My father had high regards on him. But, the article and the subsequent comments clearly indicate that, there is an ego class between the fowzies and Mr.Wazeer Ahmed. My daughter studied under him for ACCA at mercury. Based on what my daughter and her friends have to say, I can personally vouch that Mr.Wazeer Ahmed is a decent and an honest guy. I even spoke to him and few others in colombo. It seems that, despite being a nice man, there is a lacking on Mr.Fowzies’ part in relation to the family. (As in, the failure to bring up his children with proper islamic values. A mother in the family had given a false affidavit to say her daughter is an adulterous woman) I am not here to judge anybody.I keep names out as no slander is intended. If I know Mr.Fowzies’ number then will directly call him. Nobody is bigger than ththew interest of this ummah.
    So, I kindly request to let matters settle before it gets uglier. Already it looks bad. May almighty forgive me if I mentioned anything wrong.
