This was/is my back surgeon. Donated almost $1,000,000 to shady organizations in Pakistan, reimbursed for all of it, claimed them all to be charitable donations. The charge of conspiracy was related to the terrorist ties to some of the organizations he "donated" the money to. His punishment? $25,000 fine and 2 years of probation. http://www.wbng.com/news/local/Local-surg-301115011.html (WBNG Binghamton) Dr. Saeed Bajwa, a local surgeon at Southern New York Neuro Surgery Center, pleaded guilty in court to making false statements on Tuesday. The United States District in the Eastern District of Virginia dismissed count one of the indictment against him, which referred to charges of conspiracy. Bajwa allegedly sent more than $800,000 to agencies in Pakistan. U.S. district court documents showed Bajwa's charges stem from sending that money to organizations for 20 years, starting in 1991. The doctor was then reimbursed for that money, but filed tax returns claiming it was a charitable donation. Bajwa has been sentenced to two years probation and ordered to pay $25,000. His probation comes with several special stipulations. According to U.S. district court documents, while on probation Bajwa shall comply with the following: - Provide the probation officer with any requested financial documents and information, including personal and business income tax returns - The government shall provide a list of specific individuals to the U.S. Probation Office with whom the defendant shall have no contact - The defendant shall pay a fine in the amount of $25,000 due in full within six months of sentencing - The defendant presents a low risk of future substance abuse and therefore, the Court suspends the mandatory condition for substance abuse testing. This does not preclude the U.S. Probation Office from administering drug tests as appropriate.
