The Anti-Corruption Commission on Wednesday said that it has suspended salary payments to at least 15 government officials for not registering their assets.
The commission’s head Abdul Qayoum Nizami said that the cases of three other government officials have been sent to the Attorney General for further investigations after misleading information was detected in their documents.
Meanwhile, findings of the commission also show that an Indian training firm had provided fake educational documents to nearly 3,000 Afghan students and some of them were already hired by government bodies with their fake documents.
“While the institution is not recognized in its own country, based on those fake documents, some of our employees got the job and the money,” said Abdul Qayoum Nizami, the head of the Anti-Corruption Commission.
“Later on, some 112 of them prepared their forms to show their assets and sent them to the commission; however, the salaries of 15 of them are still suspended,” said Abdul Qayoum Nizami, the head of the anti-corruption commission.
“We will take joint action with those countries where our high level officials have transferred their assets,” said Abdul Wadoud Bashiryar, the head of the asset registration department.
The anti-corruption chief said that the organization is also assessing reports about the transfer of gold and money from ports and airports of Afghanistan and the outcome will be shared soon.
