British national enjoyed leverages as Chairman BoG OPF without appointment notification.

Islamabad -- It is revealed that a British national has been kept on heading Board of Governors (BoG) as Chairman in Overseas Pakistanis Foundation (OPF), without any official notification since last two years.

OPF is a subsidiary organization of Ministry for Overseas Pakistanis and Barrister Amjad Malik who is a British national besides taking monthly salary, enjoyed all privileges and perks of the designation during his term ruining millions of rupees of poor nation.

Startling fact is that decisions being taken during his tenure held in abeyance when news about his nationality surfaced.

Barrister Amjad Malik is a professional advocate in UK and residing there for the last 20 years had appointed as Chairman BoG of OPF by former Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif with a reference of a state minister.

BoG elected him as Chairman but summary of decision did not send back to the ministry or PM for approval and his notification as Chairman BoG could not be issued while he kept on enjoying the designation and related benefits including expenses of his tours from Pakistan to UK and vice versa.

It is worthy to mention that Barrister Amjad Malik has found guilty of violating Pakistani laws as he continued his legal practices in UK along with taking salary from Pakistan.

On the other hand, sources said that Barrister is a worker of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) and during his tenure as Chairman BoG of OPF; he had issued letters to hundreds of Overseas Pakistanis who have been serving as diplomats of respective political party in their relevant countries.

Media contacted Chairman OPF BoG, Barrister Amjad Malik through Whatsapp but he did not respond despite waiting for hours.
