MEC accuses government agencies of not cooperating
Wed May 23, 11:40 am
The Monitoring and Evaluation Committee (MEC) has accused the government offices of not cooperating with it to eliminate corruption.
Despite the improvements that have been made to the functions of the committee, MEC officials said they still have many challenges to overcome.
The MEC officials say widespread corruption exists in the government agencies but the relevant offices will not cooperate in its eradication.
Administrative corruption inside the Afghan government offices is one of the most pressing issues that concern donor nations regarding Afghanistan. They want to be sure that the money they are giving does not go to individual Afghan government officials, but that it is used transparently for the benefit of the programs that will help all Afghan citizens.
A number of institutions and commission have been established for the eradication of corruption but so far none of them has created a positive outcome.
The Monitoring and Evaluation Committee (MEC) has six members, 3 national and another 3 foreigners. The MEC was established to reduce corruption in the country.
The foreign members of the MEC followed the Kabul Bank scandal case some months ago. At that time they warned the Afghan government that they would lose their prestige if they failed to bring to trial the perpetrators of the Kabul Bank crisis.
