In 2014, Faisal Siddique Khan was one of several people accused of scheming to embezzle money from the Pakistani government in what became known as the Rental Power scam. According to one report, regulators identified twelve incidents where nine businesses received a total of Rs22 billion ($220 million) from the Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) to commission development projects that were never started. [1] A second report identified 50 incidents where Rs5 billion ($50 million) was paid to nonexistent companies. [2] Part of the fraud involved TDAP paying "fake claims of freight subsidy" to "dozens of paper export companies" controlled by Khan. [3]

Khan is described as "a trusted front man" to Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani [2] who met with Gillani's deputy secretary Muhammad Zubair [1] and controlled "the prime minister’s share of the misappropriated money."[2]

Others accused included:

  • Tauqir Sadiq - chairman of the Oil Gas and Power Regulation Authority (OGRA)
  • Dewan Ziaur Rehman - CEO of Dewan Petroleum, accused of embezzling 52 million rupees ($500,000)
  • The personal secretary of Commerce Minister Makhdoom Amin Fahim, not named in the report.
  • Tariq Iqbal Puri - CEO of TDAP, allegedly pushed the scam forward[3]
  • Ali Musa Gillani - son of Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gillani. "Faisal Siddique Khan remained in constant contact" with Ali Musa by telephone.[3]
  • Ghulam Abbas - A "trader from Multan" who replaced Khan after Khan came under investigation, then allegedly continued the fraud.[3]

Khan was able to control Prime Minister Gillani when he was elected in 2008. [4]

Possible connection to Leo Wanta Edit

The name of Faisal Siddique Khan is similar to that of a Faisal S. Khan who Leo Wanta named as involved in a purchase of 2,000 tons of stolen Russian gold during The Great Ruble Scam of 1991. The New Jersey street address of that Khan's El-Siraat Trading International is identical to the home address of Levy Lewis aka Lew Levy of the Burlington Development shipping company.
