On Jan 20th 2003 at about 10 am two men showed up at my residence 4 Santa Fe placea high scale Neighborhood in Odessa Texas and identified them as agents from secretservice and FBIThey were interested in talking to my daughter Noreen barely 18 who had drawn acaricature of a person holding a banner which said death to Bush , it was a reflection of massive anti -Bush protest worldwide on television that week , the agents asked her lotsof questions and made notes .I felt uneasy and called an attorney in Odessa Texas whoadvised me to allow them this interview ,because times have changed .My Family left for Pakistan on annual vacation .On Jan 24
2003 at 4.45 pm while I was seeing patients and the office which was full of  patients I was told that few people wanted to talk to me ,they couldn’t wait till I finishseeing the patient . When I came outside a gentleman named Hoover introduced himAnd gave me search and seizure warrants saying the office was involved in Medicaidfraud .In a very short time about 19 agents came inside the office with and weapons badges andstarted to fill boxes of anything and everything they wanted to they were downloading theComputers but in reality they were snooping around and looking for stuff which hadnothing to with Medicaid .The office staff was relieved of their duties , patients were sent away ,and it was just meand the 19 agents, who ransacked the office.They asked me if I had any weapons on the premises I told them I did and they were inthe gun safe which is locked .The head of the team Mr. Hoover and agent Sutherland along with other agents spent7 hours in my personal office 15x15 looking at every piece of paper overturned everyinch of and confiscated my personal belongings including my passport , photo albums ,airline tickets letters from friends , they seemed to be very interested and focused on myIslamic books ,of which I had many, including ,female warriors of Islam , book by ImamKhomeini, book titled , the bomb, Glorious past of Islam, many copies of Holy Quran , books relating to Islam , children’s Islamic books ,my office was decorated with Islamiccalligraphy on all walls , there were large photographs of Kaaba .They showed jubilation when they found flight manuals and maps ,from an earlier interest in flying . They behaved as if they have found the twentieth 9/11 terrorist theyleft at 1.45 am .The following day I received a call from the FBI office in Midland Texas they wanted totalk tome and told me that they would like to return some of confiscated stuff to me .I insisted on the meeting the same day and went to their office in the afternoon , therewere four people in the room one at the door sitting to my left was a fellow who did notIdentify himself .
Mr. Hoover was leading the talks he showed me a patients chart and asked me how manytests were performed on this child , after looking at the chart I replied 48 tests , Mr.hoover said ,his records show that the patients was billed for 48 tests and 96 tests on thesame day , and waived a paper in the air. I told him it was obviously an error and the billing clerk should be asked about it not me because I have never personally handled billing moreover I said we have never done that many tests on anybody in 20 years.( Next Day we checked our computer in the office and found the billing to be correctthere were no 96 tests billed )Then the man on my left ( Mr. Mark Roomberg the assistant US attorney ) asked me whyI have traveled to Saudi Arabia and Dubai on so many occasions I gave him appropriateanswers , He asked me about the photo album of a Tameer-Nau College in QuettaPakistan and asked If I had helped I replied yes , he asked if I will continue to do so andI replied affirmative , he also asked me if I built mosque in Pakistan the answer was yes. built mosque and schools in Pakistan ,my country by birth.He asked me if I had weapons and why do I have them , I replied that I live in Texas thatI was American citizen and it’s my right to bear arms that I use them for hunting withfriends. I told him that my immediate neighbor is a hunter and has 44 weapons in hishouse .He pushed my passport and album on the table.Mr. Hoover showed me a dairy and asked me to read what was written , the handwritingwas mine and it had names of few chemicals used in explosives that I had jolted downI had lot of difficulty reading it , he informed me that it was a bomb recipe used by theshoe Bomber . I always wanted to go to Pakistan and flatten a hill to build a house on amesa , I had come across these chemicals in a news paper. They didn’t seem to believeMe .All of a sudden Mr. Hoover stood up and said , why did you write a threatening letter toMr. Bush , I was taken aback , I said I had done no such thing and they were way out of line in accusations . I asked him to show me such letter ,he said he will when the timecomes , another officer informed me that I was in big trouble and I was looking at 200Years behind bars .The meeting was ended I was escorted out .On the way to the parking lot I felt dizzy , for the first time I realized that I was beinginvestigated for something I have not done , but I was innocent and feared nothing asI believed strongly in the justice system .It appeared to me that they were fishing for something and I had nothing to be afraid of.I felt I was being followed , and this practice continued 24/7 for the entire duration of investigation.
I narrated this account to immediate neighbors Drs Leshnawer and Dr Peitella who wereAngry and said I was being railroaded by the FBI . Dr Leshnawer advised me to contactan attorney immediately he suggested an Odessa Attorney Bob Leheay I contacted theattorney and requested him to arrange a meeting with Mark RoombergThe assistant US attorney in Midland to find out what exactly were they up to.A meeting was` arranged , we went to see him ,there were three people but Mr. Mark Roomberg conducted the meeting he said they have about thirty thousand dollars of fraudulent billings .but had no evidence to show us. He gave me the option of admittingto fraud ,that he will keep things all hushed and I will spend one year in jail . I wasoutraged and He was visibly angry , mostly because of defiant and rather insulting behavior toward the whole thing. He vowed to indict me .My attorney was convinced that the government was up to no good that I will be indictedAnd will have to go court and that he will charge me a sum of seventy thousand dollarsPlus expenses to represent me .I thought he was a good attorney but perhaps I needed theBest , so I called around and found out that the best criminal defense attorney is MikeRamsey from Houston Texas . I made an appointment to see him.Mike Ramsey was a gentleman , he listened to the whole story very patiently meetinglasted for hours , at the end he folded his papers and said ,Doctor they are fishing for something other than Medicaid fraud I have never heard of any case where thegovernment would even bother to go after a doctor for thirty thousand dollars and if theyhad something against you they would have already gotten you and wouldn’t wait solong. Go home relax , If they say anything let me know. He didn’t charge me anything.After visiting with mike Ramsey I was feeling better and kept low profile.The FBI agents kept chasing my car from my house to my office to the mosque routinelyThey contacted everybody that I spoke to on the phone and forbade everyone to talk tome or else they would be implicated , only one person had the courage to come and tellMe about it and he wasn’t a Muslim brother .Most of the people I knew were scared to associate with me and shunned me when theyCould initially many months passed before they started to come back And showed support.An employee named Mona spears quit under pressure from the FBI.Things continued , my telephone was bugged my e mails were supervised they keptHassling my friends and the chase continued.We frequently needed patient charts that they had been taken away by the FBI . An agentnamed Steve Frank used To bring these records to the office when we needed them tosee those patients .He told me that FBI would like to subject me to lie detectors test ,I
