Efforts on to bring back Kabul Bank defaulters: AGO
KABUL (Pajhwok): The Attorney General Office (AGO) on Tuesday said of $970 million embezzled money in Kabul Bank, more than $440 million have been obtained.
AGO spokesman Basir Azizi told journalists in Kabul the amount was recovered following a verdict by special Kabul Bank court.
The AGO, he said was striving in coordination with other departments to recover the remaining amount. “Those who have not cleared their debts yet should understand that we don’t want even a single afghani of Kabul Bank to remain with them. It’s the nation’s money and we’ll obtain it.”
Last month the AGO announced that 155 Kabul Bank debtors were barred from leaving the country and their properties had been confiscated.
Azizi said some of these debtors were detained at Kabul Airport and had paid their debts.
He said the AGO was in contact with different countries to deport those individuals to Afghanistan who still had debts with Kabul Bank.
