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.

    There are crooks around the President – Dilan, Fowzie, Rohitha Bogollagama, Jayasundera, Shantha Bandara, Mahinda Yapa and others. Unfortunately President is not seeing out those crooks who are behind him. One day they are the one who are going to stab the President in the back. While the President focuses on bringing the crooks in front of him, he also should bring those crooks who are behind him before the law. I hope that he does this soon after the local government elections. President should reshuffle the cabinet as well.

Only development work he did to the Railway was buying trains and increasing salaries to the loss making workers. Counter how many Politicians who were rejected by the voters are National list MPs under MY3. One recently created problems within the cricket board. Another was revealed to have accounts (S.B. D.) as per PANAMA papers. I heard, he also built another house, recently, in upcountry

    Looks like a film story. Minister’s granddaughter seems to have divorced Dr. Mumammed Shazli and been supported by Wazir Ahamad (who is Wazir Ahamad to her now?). And Minister’s family and the Dr does not like them (for what?)

    I am really confused why Yahapalanaya, Maithri, RW and Bond-scam are here. Police inaction should be noted for sure, but they still say there is case in courts. Are these intimidations carried out despite the case?

    I have not forgotten history. The old fox was once upon a time the Mayor of Colombo, whose actions were probed into and he was stripped of his civic rights. But yet after his period of hibernation, he is in full swing. The reality of the matter is that HE has to depend on the so called SLFPers to exercise leverage in the “Yahapalana” Government. All these fellows condemned MY3 when he bolted out in the evening after having hoppers with MR in the morning. MY3 knows that and HE knows that in politics there are no permanent friends or foes. The old fox as well as others dubbed as the “Appachchi Malo” group are with MY3 to escape the legal action for their previous misdeeds.

    Fowzie is a political chameleon changing colours according to the rewards he gets.
    He was brought out from obscurity by Felix Bandaranaike and helped to become the Mayor. It was NonAlgned Conf in 1976 and Felix got Fowzie to demolish all the shanties around Slave island. Remember the pithy saying: Mohamed Gaddafi, pal path kadaapiya! Gaddafi was the leading light of the NAM then.

    Some who comment ,filled with hate , should do their homework first .

    Hon.Min. Fowzy ,comes from a family of business background ,they owned a fleet of Cab services, probably long before some who are blindly attacking him was even born , He always had his family house in Colombo 6 long time ago ,again probably before some of those who blinded by pure hate commenting here.

      You idiot Rana do not know anything, you are used to bad writing so is this. Fowzy belongs to a lower middle class family (Colomo 10 area) and can say they were poor. He was not educated like most of our ministers and he was handsome during his young days. A rich Muslim (Bookmaker) in his area took a liking to him and gave his daughter in marriage to him. Since his father-in-law was very rich and he had all the backings so he raised his head. It was his F-in-L who encouraged him to get into politics, made him to contest a Municipal Seat and gave all the backing. You know the game of all politician, once they win they go on making money all the ways possible but not on legal business. May be he also one of them. I heard he is good pal of MR and when MR come to Colombo those days he always had lunch in his house. 90% of politicians were uneducated those days, some come from very poor families. Now you have little educated politicians but most of their fathers too were politician who had robbed left and right.

    For some Muslim. Families everything is fine ,until there is a conflict ,especially when it comes to money ,they will shameless stoop to the lowest level of fabricating and slandering .

    No wonder today Most Muslims have had the worst down falls ,When it comes to money ,All commandments are thrown over their shoulders ,for own benefits ,they will do anything.

    What the Muslims tasted in that short period of last regime was only a dip of salt ,continue stabbing each other in backs and you will pay miserably one day ,which may be soon.

    And The holy Prophet was a Shepard and also later a businessmen , The Prophet also had to take loans on and off and according to authentic tradition narrations ,there were tines he could not pay back and Rich Muslims helped him out ,as an example.. There are special rules in regard to Muslim in debts . I take it you are a Muslim ,if you are ,I recommend you read Sura Hujarat . and finally what is wrong in being a firewood seller. Besides the whole world of businessman run on loans .
    Be careful what goes around cones around

    Even if a Muslim is guilty it is prohibited for another Muslim to broadcast it ,I am consistent ,it is the law of The Qur’an and nothing is above it . I ask why is it prohibited ?
    To protect the guilty ?

    No ,not at all, It is clearly stated the oder of punishment in the world & in the hereafter too ,no free ride you pay what you earn .cont….2

    The reason you are prohibited to broadcast are two reasons, one is to protect the innocent relatives of the person who is guilty , and thee other is to prevent the Ignorant Muslim from bringing upon themselves the curse of those who are innocent and the their only crime being related to the guilty. Finally if you have read the Quran ,it always encourage to forgive and make peace among the Ummah.
    Remember everyone is innocent ,until proven guilty .including Rajapakshes

    Colonel ,,,,, oh I am stupid ,thank you for your compliments . so you are intelligent ! !? Good for you , what is there to dig the past ,you will have to dig the graves too , because you can’t let go the crimes of all the dead politicians and punish only the ones alive .
    Besides everyone talks based on hear say ,even an atom of evidence to date could not be established against The Rajapakhes ,hence your intelligence
