Syed Ziauddin AKBAR
DESCRIPTION: Syed Ziauddin Akbar was born on June 25, 1944, in India, and holds dual British and Pakistani citizenship. He is 165 centimeters in height and weighs 62 kilograms. He has black hair and brown eyes.
CASE DETAILS: The Bank of Credit and Commerce International was shut down in 1991 after investigators uncovered fraud amounting to as much as twenty billion dollars. It was the largest bank failure in history. The fall of the Luxcembourg-based B.C.C.I. left a quarter of a million unpaid creditors around the world. Thousands of families lost their life savings. B.C.C.I. officials and their agents have been charged with criminal acts in Europe, Africa, Asia, and North and South America.
In the United States, B.C.C.I. illegally purchased American banks and defrauded American investors and the U.S. government. A key figure in the B.C.C.I. conspiracy was Syed Ziauddin Akbar, the bank's former treasurer. He has been charged by the state of New York with grand larceny for extorting fifteen million dollars.
At the time the B.C.C.I. scandal broke, Akbar was serving time in a British prison for drug trafficking. He was paroled in 1991 but violated his parole by fleeing to France. He was extradited to Britain and sentenced in 1993 to six years in prison on charges related to the B.C.C.I. fraud. He served three years of that sentence and then was held for an additional thirteen months pending extradition to the U.S. on separate charges related to B.C.C.I. But, because of a jurisdictional issue raised in France, the extradition proceedings could not be completed in time. Akbar was released from prison in Brixton, England, in late October 1996. He is now an international fugitive.
If you have any information concerning Syed Ziauddin Akbar, you should contact the nearest U. S. embassy or consulate. The U. S. guarantees that all reports will be investigated and all information will be kept confidential. If appropriate, the U.S. is prepared to protect informants by relocating them.
