Former IT staffer Imran Awan allegedly threatened to have his stepmother’s Pakistani relatives kidnapped if she talked to U.S. law enforcement authorities, according to court documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group.
Luke Rosiak of The Daily Caller reported:
“Imran Awan threatened that he is very powerful and if I ever call the police again, [he] will … kidnap my family members back in Pakistan,” Awan’s stepmother, Samina Gilani, claimed in the documents filed April 14 in Fairfax County, Va., in the case of Americo Financial Life and Annuity Insurance Company v. Abid A. Awan and Samina Ashraf Gilani.
“Imran Awan did admit to me that my phone is tapped and there are devices installed in my house,” including one Gilani claimed in the court filing to have seen “behind the printer.” She also claimed Imran Awan represents himself in Pakistan as a powerful person in Congress and is given police escorts when he spends time in the country.
Imran Awan also attempted to make himself the beneficiary of a life insurance policy instead of his step-mother, Gilani. According to The Daily Caller:
The form’s required witness signature was blank, and it was rejected. A week later, Abid re-submitted it but with a notary’s seal.
A police report shows that in January 2017, Gilani called Fairfax police claiming her stepsons refused to let her see her dying husband in his final moments. Police said Abid angrily waved an unsigned power-of-attorney document at an officer and refused to give Shah’s location.
Shah died of cancer Jan. 16 and Americo received a claim on Feb. 2 for the $50,000 to be paid to Abid. Americo told the court it also received a letter from Gilani contending the “beneficiary changes to the policy were procured through fraud.”
Americo said it “cannot safely determine who is rightfully entitled to the policy proceeds” and asked the court to resolve the issue.
The Daily Caller has written nearly two dozen investigative reports on the Awan brothers yet their attorneys continue to blame ‘Islamophobia’ and ‘anti-Muslim bigotry’ for the ongoing police investigation.
Imran Awan was finally arrested at Dulles airport while trying to flee the United States. Awan and his wife had $12,000 cash on them at the time of the arrest.
The Daily Caller also reported that the Pakistani IT staffers wired $283,000 from Congressional Federal Credit Union in a House office building to two people in Pakistan.
“On January 18, 2017 at 12:09 pm, an international wire transfer request form was submitted [at the Congressional Federal Credit Union] at the Longworth House Office Building in the District of Columbia, in the amount of $283,000.00, to two individuals in Faisalabad, Pakistan,” according to a 10-page affidavit obtained by TheDCNF.
Wasserman Schultz has refused to fire Imran, despite being a known criminal suspect in a cybersecurity probe for months, and has blocked Capitol Police from searching a laptop they confiscated because it was tied to him.
TGP also previously reported that former Chairman of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with ‘consequences’ for holding equipment that she says belongs to her in order to build a criminal case against a Pakistani IT staffer suspected of massive cyber-security breaches.
This is a HUGE scandal and there has been a total MEDIA BLACKOUT. Cable networks, save for Fox News have refused to cover this bombshell story plaguing the DNC.
