FAKE EVENT Using the name of FDMA & UN Agencies
(PDMA) Complex Emergencies Wing (CEW) has written to the Deputy Commissioners of Kohat and Hangu to deploy personnel and police to identify and arrest culprits involved in a bogus ration drive to “mint money from TDPs in the name of WFP, UNHCR and (PDMA) CEW”.
The letter, signed by Director Operation and Relief (PDMA) CEW and dated December 20 states that the names and logos of the international organizations have been used to market a four-day event being held at the “Milan Shadi Hall” on the Hangu Bypass Road Kohat from December 20 till 23.
UNHCR and WFP confirmed to (PDMA) CEW that “no such program activities are planned for TDPs,” adding that the “subject notice displayed at various locations is totally bogus.”
Copies of the letter have also been forwarded by the (PDMA) CEW to District Police Officers of Kohat and Hangu for necessary action.
