Kabul Bank embezzlement crisis is still unsolved and the New Kabul Bank is working with deficiencies.
The Independent Joint Anti-Corruption Monitoring and Evaluation Committee (MEC) in a press conference presenting their six month report said that Kabul bank investigation is unacceptable, because there are defects on their reports.
Rashid Behroz Chief Executive Officer of the MEC said,” Inquiry to the Kabul Bank crisis is unacceptable, because they haven’t collected all the moneys being embezzled and the New Kabul Bank is also having faults”.
The Committee believes that there is a strong commitment for eliminating corruption in Afghanistan government leadership, but there are some procrastinations and unwillingness in the governmental institutions.
“Our findings reveal that all governmental institutions were not good colleagues with us, they were not cooperating with us, but there are some institutions partially helped the committee in anti-corruption cases,” Behroz added.
MEC further asked the government to trail those governmental officials affected with corruptions.
“There are many corruption cases showing high governmental officials involvement including Omar Zakhilwal ex-finance minister, we are asking the government to trail all those accused for corruption in transparent court.”
The committee is also presenting a large number of recommendations for anti-corruption efforts.
Sayed Hameedullah Tawab MEC Advisor said,” the recommendations we have provided for anti-corruption efforts to the governmental institutions will be very efficient to decrease corruption”.
Different organizations have struggled to tackle the corruption challenges, but their activities and practical actions were very rare.
The Independent Joint Anti-Corruption Monitoring and Evaluation Committee (MEC) independently monitors and evaluates national and international efforts to fight corruption in Afghanistan.
