Proofs against MPs being given to court: MoI (Video)
KABUL (PAN): Documentary proofs of 72 lawmakers’ involvement in illegal activities are being provided to prosecutors and courts, a Ministry of Interior (MoI) official said on Wednesday.
Hours after being voted out by the Wolesi Jirga, Interior Minister Mujtaba Patang accused the 72 MPs of land grab, drug smuggling, spying for Pakistan and other unlawful activities.
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.
