Bank accounts of some former government officials who fled the country have been closed by the Taliban.
Anaamullah Samangani, a member of the Taliban Cultural Commission, said on Thursday that the Taliban has closed some bank accounts of officials who worked in the previous government, but he did not mention names.
“Accounts of some officials from the previous government--most of whom fled the country--have been closed," he said.
At the same time, a letter posted on social media by the Afghanistan Central Bank (Da Afghanistan Bank ) said that accounts of some ministers, deputy ministers, governors, deputy governors, members of parliament, members of provincial councils, mayors and other VIPs should be closed in other internal banks, and be reported to Central Bank.
Officials from Afghanistan Central Bank have not commented to the media over the issue.
Mohammad Zamir, a Kabul resident, told TOLOnews: “Their accounts should be closed, it must be made clear about the money in their accounts.”
