Suspects In IEC Breach Referred To Attorney General

The panel investigating how the digital data center lock was breached has decided on Friday to introduce the perpetrators to the Attorney General Office.

The delegation, consisting of members of the Independent Election Commission and Abdullah’s team, said that Hamidullah Ahmadzai, security adviser of the IEC secretariat, and Lutful Rahman, responsible for locking the door of the digital data center and Sayed Asghar, the solider who helped break the lock, will be introduced to the Attorney General on Sunday.

“All those who were involved in the breach of IEC’s Digital center lock have been identified,” said Mohammad Abdullah, a member of the IEC.

According to the investigating panel report, those others who are also involved in the breaching case will be introduced to the attorney general office.

This comes two days after the Stability and Convergence Party alleged that security forces, in collaboration with a “particular election campaign,” and by the order of the Independent Election Commission’s secretary chief, picked the digital lock protecting the IEC’s digital center on Sunday and entered the facility.

After the incident, a committee was formed to investigate—a panel that the IEC said yesterday will share some of its findings, but which has not shared anything yet.

Although Abdullah’s team accused the Independent Election Commission’s secretary chief, but he did not comment yet.

Meanwhile, other election observers have different views on the panel's decision.

“In that night when the center lock was breached, and one election team knew about it and called the police, we want that they should also be introduced to the attorney general’s office. Why would only one team know about the incident and the other team not,” said Marouf Ayoubzai, Ghani’s team observer.

Work at the digital center of the IEC stopped shortly after Abdullah Abdullah's election team reported a break-in at the center, but the center resumed work after the investigation delegation started the investigation.
