The Islamic Emirate has begun pursuing cases of land grabbing in Kabul in the Mullah Tarakhail township.
The Ministry of Justice's spokesperson, Abdul Hamed Jihadyar, said that the technical committee of the commission formed to stop land grabbing and to identify seized land, has begun activities in 20 provinces, including Kabul.
“The technical committee went to locations and began its work there at the Mullah Tarakhail township, which will review all the documentation and limitations of the mentioned township, after two consecutive meetings in Kabul,” Jihadyar added.
Meanwhile, Mullah Tarakhail Mohammadi, a member of the House of Representatives in the previous government, said that he has the official documents of the township with him and is ready to cooperate with the commission to review the land.
"Everyone reassured them that if more land is taken than what is in the decree, you decide, we will not complain, and if the land mentioned in this decree was less than this, we expect that it will be granted to us,” Mullah Tarakhail added.
Mullah Tarakhail noted that this township has received close to 35,000 acres of land officially from the previous administration.
However, the township's residents said that since the Islamic Emirate was established, house-building in their township has stopped, and they asked the government to complete the land surveying process quickly.
"After several meetings, it was decided that a commission of two or three members would be appointed. Mullah Tarakhail should appoint two or three people. We will review the project,” said a resident of Mullah Tarakhail township.
"We are not against this decision of this commission,” said a resident of Mullah Tarakhail township.
According to figures from the Ministry of Justice, nearly 20,000 acres of land are under investigation of the Commission to Prevent Land Grabbing and Identify Seized Land.
