In 1997, Mohamed Vazir Muhsin, a Sri Lankan accountant, was chosen by then-World Bank President James Wolfensohn as the first chief information officer in the institution's history. Eight years later, Muhsin was unceremoniously thrown out the door, and the bank's information security headaches reached migraine stage.
Russia's Bare-Knuckle Policy on Oil
Early on in his tenure, Muhsin selected Satyam Computer Services, one of India's largest and fastest-growing technology firms, to create and maintain the software programs that would make the bank's information infrastructure into one of the world's most important data bases. Both sides found the deal highly beneficial.
By late 2005, when he was accused of improper ties with Satyam and ousted from the bank, "Mohamed was arguably the most powerful person in the bank," one insider who worked closely with Muhsin told FOX News. So powerful, in fact, that he was able to conceive and arrange a bank loan in 2003 to his native Sri Lanka — bypassing the department that would normally have approved it. The project, known as "e-Sri Lanka," involved a no-interest, $53 million bank loan to Sri Lanka's government to help wire up that nation's communications infrastructure.
