Proofs against MPs being given to court: MoI
Addressing a news conference in Kabul, the MoI spokesman the ministry and other judicial organs were jointly working on the documents proving legislators’ links to a variety of crimes.
Ghulam Siddique Siddiqui, when asked to name the public representatives, said investigating their cases needed time. Revealing their names before the probe was completed would not be appropriate, he argued.
Separately, the Attorney General Office has asked Patang to submit the documents linking the parliamentarians to the illicit drug trade and espionage.
The spokesman said if the Supreme Court found the parliamentary decision as legally sound, Patang would not serve as an acting minister even for a single day.
