New Pakistani Envoy to Syria “Invades” School With Family!
The new Pakistani ambassador to Syria, appointed by President Zardari, has summarily sacked the entire staff and faculty of the Pakistan International School in Damascus and appointed almost all his immediate family members for a collective monthly salary of $38,000 (Rs3.2 million).

The sacked teachers and staff members of the school run by the embassy, who were removed for no reasons and without any prior notice, have been compelled to go into litigation against the Pakistan Embassy, The News has learnt.

The Pakistan International School in Damascus (PISOD) is run by the embassy of Pakistan but within five months after the arrival of new ambassador, Aminullah Raisani, in September 2009, the management and faculty of the school was changed altogether without giving any reason and the school was stuffed with the relatives of the ambassador.

According to the list of newly inducted teachers Saeeda Yasmeen Raeesani has been appointed as Principal. She is sisterof the ambassador and is drawing $6,500 per month as salary while the previous principal Syed Tauseef Bokhari was getting $2,500. Another sister, Ms Abbas, has been appointed as Urdu teacher for $3,500 per month.

Two daughters, Amna Aminullah Raeesani and Quratulein Aminullah Raeesani, have been appointed as teachers. These two are getting $3,000 per month as salary while the school was paying only $1,700 for the same job to previous teachers.

Mohammad Ishaque, brother-in-law of the ambassador, has been appointed as accountant for $3,500 per month while the same job was previously with one Imran for just $900 a month. Attique-ur-Rehman and Syed Muhammad Ali, ambassador’s nephews, have been appointed as business teachers for $3,000 a month while the same job was done for $1,500 only before September 2009.

Nayla Atiq, granddaughter of ambassador’s sister, is working as Maths teacher for $3,000 a month while her predecessor was drawing $1,700 a month as salary. Ali Abdullah, the son-in-law of ambassador’s sister, and Muhammad Ahsan Shafique, ambassador’s cousin, have been appointed as teachers for $3,000 a month while their predecessors were drawing $1,500 a month.Another cousin of the ambassador, Rasheed Chattha, has been appointed as biology teacher for$3,500 a month while previously Ms Manal Sileman was doing the same job for $1,500 a month.


Ms Manal Sileman, one of the Syrian teachers of the Pakistani school who has been sent home without giving any notice and without any reason, while talking to The News from Damascus on phone said that it was strange that an ambassador instead of running the affairs of the embassy was keen in the business of the school.

She lamented that the ambassador has imported Chinese shoes and made it mandatory for every student to purchase those shoes at much higher rates. She said that the school was being ruined as the new incompetent teachers have been hired for more than double the salaries the previous faculty was getting.

Another teacher Saad al Hassan said that he has gone to the court with a heavy heart because he has served the school and Pakistan and now the court will issue an order against the Republic of Pakistan.

He said that he has respect for the Pakistani nation but because of a few people he has been compelled to go into litigation against the embassy and according to the Syrian laws the Pakistan Embassy in Damascus could be heavily penalised.

Saad said that the school was rated among the best in Damascus and the elite, including the foreign minister of Syria and deputy foreign minister, had started sending their kids to the Pakistan International School of Damascus but with the advent of new administration many have opted for other schools in the city.

He said that last year the school won eight gold medals in the Cambridge examination and the income of the school in 2006 was US$2,042,400 per annum and it rose to $4,774,000 per annum in 2009 with the number of students almost doubled i.e. from 600 to 1,100.

Ambassador Aminullah Raisani was too busy to talk to this correspondent. However his spokesman Zahid Ali who works as Counsellor in the embassy denied all these allegations. He said that the previous management was incompetent that was why it was sent packing while competent people have now been inducted in the school.

Zahid said that it was not true that the newly appointed teachers were drawing more salaries than the previous management. “We write to the Foreign Office of Pakistan about our tasks here,” Zahid replied when asked about some teachers going into litigation against the embassy.

    It is to highlight and bringing to your kind notice as an appeal for investigation and justice for the corruption and mal-practice of authorities at Pakistan International School of Damascus, Syria, since the arrival of new Ambassador of Mr. Amin Ullah Raisani in Syria school become a place for accommodating relatives children’s, kens of the embassy officials and it appears the school is the personal property of embassy staff of Pakistan Embassy.
    Ambassador of Pakistan.
    1. He appoint his sister Mrs. Saeeda Raisani, As Principal, of (PISOD) Pakistan International School of Damascus, Syria, and also appoint his brother in law as an Accountant (PISOD), on heavy salary package without rule and criteria.
    2. He appoint his two daughters and more than 10 family members in (PISOD), in heavy salary package without rule and criteria.
    3. He is involves in too much financial corruption of (PISOD) Pakistan International School of Damascus, affairs that everybody related to school knows including students parents, teaching and staff members are suffering the situation of mental stress, because he come everyday morning to the school and stays in the school as discipline incharge (Like a PT teacher) stands on the main gate and collecting the fine (money) from late comers students or without uniform, its his daily practice and this act is against the ethic of morality of an Ambassador. (pictures are attached).
    4. Every Staff Member and Teaching Staff are suffered in mental Stress and threats of being terminated from the school at any time without assigning anz reason even the previous Principal Toseif Bokhari was terminated without any allegation who was running the school quite successfully for the last three years, who promoted the school from 600 approx students to the double strength, with a definite increase in the income and savings for (PISOD).
    5. Ambassador has inducted too many members of his family on lucrative salaries and incentives, which broke all the records of financial corruption (a comparative statement of salaries is enclosed).
    6. He raised the salaries to more than 150% without any approval from the competent authority i.e. Ministry of Foreign Affairs, although the Ministry instructed them to get an approval for any new hiring from Pakistan on heavy salaries.
    7. Income of the PISOD in 2006 was 2042400 dollars per annum and after 3 years of hard work of the terminated management it went to 4774000 dollars per annum. But now he is using his authority over and above and steeling the (PISOD) reserved funds. Sir, you can check the Account of PISOD from Habib Bank Lebanon from September, 2009 to January, 2010.
    8. Three court cases are filed against the Ambassador and his Sister (Principal) in Syria for illegal termination of some Syrian National school staff members. Annexure Attached.
    Mr. Atta Ullaha, Councilor.
    1. He is involved in financial and moral corruption, he is enjoying his illicit relations with some unknown ladies, giving them illegal-unauthorized benefits and hiring them in (PISOD).
    2. He had issued one illegal passport to an Iraqi Leady who had her own Iraqi passport authorizing her two different places of birth/nationality alongwith two different locations. Only for raise of her salary from 550 dollars 3200 dollars because Pakistani Passport holders are engaging on heavy salary. (photo copy of both Passports are attached).

Head of Chancery (HOC)Pakistan Embassy in Syria violating his legal position by appointing his son Mr. Uzair in (PISOD) on a pay 2000 dollars per month, who have not even passed over his A level examinations. May be he is even less than 18 years by replacing another Librarian Mr. Kamran Farhat who was working as Librarian with MSc. Qualifications for a salary scale of 550 dollars per month and his life was made even more bitter to quite his job.
    2. HOC has violated on many occasion he is utilizing (PISOD) income to fulfill their embassy’s expenditures like petrol in the cars, frequent lavish dinners and tea parties in different hotels restaurants’ are arranged from (PISOD) funds because nobody is their who can account far these unauthorized acts of these officers.
    3. A new car was purchased for the Ambassador but the previous car is still in the usage of Ambassador’s wife and its maintenance and fuelling is being done from the PISOD funds, which is supervised by Mr. Zahid (HOC).

    AND I DONT KNOW HOW MANY PAKSITANI PASSPORTS HAVE BEEN ISSUED YET TO OTHER NATIONALITY HOLDERS IN SYRIA BY PAK EMBASSY DEMASCUS

  3. Pisod-teacher says:

    I am a teacher at senior school section PISOD. I hold a dual nationality and have been born and raised outside of Syria. I have been here for quite a long time. I have been seeing this school excelling and growing for a long time now. Like most of us when I visited this site I got really disappointed in people’s approach regarding PISOD.

    Let me say it outloud that PISOD students are not transfering anywhere, not to choiefat or DCS. They are still here and will remain here because adding just 6% pakistani faculty will not effect the education quality of the school sir; think from your head please….In fact we as syrians have and will always praise pakistani teachers. They are indeed smart and intellectual. I don’t understand what is going on with you guys and these articles….

    There is a very thin line between the truth and a lie. They say that a lie has no legs but a rumor has wings.

    Currently we have about 9% Pakistani staff (thanks to the new management, used to be only 3%), 80% Syrian staff which includes the heads of all the sections in PISOD and the rest dual or mix nationalities. Almost the same formula is applied among the students as well. Pakistani, Indians and other nationalities are minorities here and you will often find them cornered due to an influence from the Syrians. So 80% is the strongest with a strong influence in everything they say whether teachers or students. Also don’t forget that we are partially or fully foreigners in this country. If you dismiss one Syrian teacher from the job (especially an influential one) for any reason whatsoever; you should then be ready to face the music. This is exactly what’s going on right now.

    I will strongly discourage you people about the fictitious comments against PISOD management because this will not only damage your reputation as a school but also as a country too.

    I wish you could come and see the improvement in the school; we don’t need as much efforts as we used to for managing our extra naughty and spoiled students as compared to last year. There are no more skipping students as compare to last year when there was hardly anyone found in the classes. Students are more respectful towards us and there is a harmony among them because of wearing proper uniform. There is a lot still needs to be done though and we need your assistance and support on this venture. So join the postive side; be our strength and not weakness ……..
