Govt should ensure investors' security: Haqjo

Govt should ensure investors' security: Haqjo

Jun 25, 2011 - 19:08

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): The Afghan government should work harder to insure the security of investors and traders, the Chamber of Commerce said on Saturday, warning that the risk of death could drive investors from the country.

Muhammad Qurban Haqjo, the executive head of the Afghanistaninfo-icon Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ACCI), condemned the murder of Afghan trader Ahmad Shah Hakim during a press conference in Kabul.
Unidentified gunmen shot dead the moneychanger on Thursday in the tightly secured Kabul neighborhood of Wazir Akbar Khan while he was traveling on the airport road in his vehicle. The gunmen escaped with the money in the vehicle.
The Kabul crime branch chief, Col. Mohammad Zahir confirmed that the moneychanger had been killed and two others were injured in the attack.
“How is it possible for robbers to attack a moneychanger during the day, in an area where the security is tight, and flee from the area?” Haqjo said.
He asked the government to ensure the security of all citizens, especially the investors, he said.
Lack of security and threat to the lives of businessmen are the reasons will cause investors to withdraw money from the country and could lead to an economic crisis, he said.
He also asked the government to arrest the criminals and to bring them to justice, including the security officials who were on duty on that in the area.
