    Prominent chartered accountant and former caretaker provincial minister for Sindh Syed Shabbar Zaidi was named by Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday as his choice for the new Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) chairman.

    The appointment has yet to be notified, but the prime minister said it will be soon.

    Zaidi is a senior partner in A.F. Ferguson & Co, a member firm of Pricewaterhouse Coopers and has authored multiple books, including Panama Leaks: A Blessing in Disguise–Offshore Assets of Pakistani Citizens, A Journey for Clarity and Pakistan: Not a Failed State.

    He is well versed in Pakistan’s tax laws and the key policy matters governing fiscal strategy, corporate regulations and foreign exchange regimes and has written extensively on the topics. He recently also advised the Supreme Court in a case concerning offshore assets owned by Pakistanis.

    Shabbar Zaidi mostly talks sense whenever he is interviewed but Rules of Govt are that Chairman CBR has to be Grade 21+ Officer, will opposition challange in courts and will courts provide a cover?

    قانون ہمیشہ وہی اپلائی ہوتا ہے جو سپیریئر ہوتا ہے

    آئی ایم ایف کا قانون ہمارے ملکی قوانین سے سپیریئر ہے اس لیے آئی ایم ایف کا ہی قانون پاکستان میں لاگو ہوگا

    کیا آئی ایم ایف کو انکار کرکے ہم اپنے دس لاکھ سفید ہاتھی بھوکے مارنے کا رسک لے سکتے ہیں؟

    قرض دینے والے پہلے اپنے بندوں کو کلین چٹ دلاتے ہیں اور پھر انہیں ہمارے سر پر سوار کرتے ہیں

    لگتا ہے بچہ پاکستان کی سیاسی تاریخ سے ناواقف ہے

    یہاں تو آئی ایم ایف اور ورلڈ بینک والے اپنے بندوں کو وزیر اعظم بنوا کر ہمارے سروں پر سوار کر چکے ہیں

    Meanwhile, the decision did not go down well at the FBR where the Inland Revenue Officers Association issued a harsh statement almost immediately following the announcement in which they threatened court action against it.

    “The association believes that the issue of appointing any person from private sector has already been resolved through the judgement of Islambad High Court,” said the statement, referring to the case of Arshad Ali Hakeem who was also brought from the private sector to head the FBR for what proved to be a short-lived stint of one year till his appointment was struck down as illegal by the Islamabad High Court on a petition filed by an Inland Revenue Service officer. That judgement still holds the field and the association is now threatening to bring a similar case against Mr Zaidi’s appointment.

    Hafeez Bhai, Ali had worked in customs Lahore, Karachi, then appointed as Chairman FBR so he had record of Govt service but he was not senior enough to be appointed as chairman.

    There was similar movement against Jehnazeb, outgoing chariman CBR who was appointed as Ambassador to France but foreign office rebelled and Zardari had to back down.
