The Attorney General Office (AGO) of Afghanistan has announced that it will open a new anti-corruption center in order to enhance the enforcement of law in Afghanistan.
Farid Hamidi, the new appointed head of AGO who was speaking at a press conference said that he will not allow any authority or power to act above the law.
“The anti-corruption machine will be activated, the new anti-corruption center will be launched to increase coordination and action in the fight against corruption and we have the required political support of the government,” Hamidi said.
A new call center will be opened to receive the complains and recommendation of people and in addition to this the head of AGO added that he has signed a new Memorandum of Understanding with the Ministry of Interior to increase cooperation.
“According to an MoU signed between the Ministry of Interior and the Attorney General Office the cooperation will be increased, because before there was not a good cooperation by police to bring the suspects to the judgment, and after this no authority or power can act above the law,” he continued.
In addition he vowed to clear the biggest scandals in Afghanistan including the Kabul Bank and the Smart City cases.
In a bid to fight against corruption, the new attorney general relocated about 40 prosecutors from their previous locations in 15 provinces of the country and has appointed some new attorneys as a new challenge if he could succeed to bring reforms in Afghanistan’s judicial system.
