MP’s allegations against AG rejected as baseless
KABUL (Pajhwok): The Attorney General's Office (AGO) on Saturday rejected as baseless claims by a lawmaker that the Attorney General and Kabul Mayor had sold a land plot belonging to the government.
The AGO asked the Wolesi Jirga to send MP Allah Gul Mujahid to the AGO to substantiate his claims.
The lawmaker has accused Mayor Mohammad Younus Nawandesh and AG Mohammad Ishaq Aloko of selling a government-owned land plot near the Russian Embassy in Darulaman locality of Kabul.
AGO spokesman Basir Azizi told reporters that Mujahid’s allegations were groundless and if he had any evidence, he should produce that before the AGO through the Wolesi Jirga’s administrative board.
“Mujahid is wanted by the AGO in a land-grab case, protests against the government and beating a trader,” Azizi said. “Mujahid is reusing to appear before the AGO for investigation by taking refuge behind his parliamentary immunity.”
The official asked the Parliament to send Mujahid to the AGO for investigation, otherwise his case would be referred to the criminal detective institutions.
However, Mujahid denied he was wanted by the Attorney General Office in any case.
