Herat PC head case being referred to court soon: AGO
KABUL (Pajhwok): The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) on Monday said it had completed interrogation from the provincial council head of western Herat province and his case would be referred to court over the next few days.
Baktash Azizi, the AGO office head, told Pajhwok Afghan News investigation from Kamran Alizai, the Herat provincial council head, was conducted in capital Kabul.
“Last Thursday about five days ago Kamran Alizai along with some elders and public representatives came to AGO and apologized for what he had done and said he was ready to answer all questions from prosecutors.”
Azizi said: “The provincial council head illegally entered Herat Attorney’s Office and took with him a man under interrogation, and therefore the Attorney General using his authority suspended Alizai and imposed an exit ban on him.”
To a question, the AGO’s spokesman said the suspension of and travel ban on Kamran Alizai were precautionary measures and the ban was lifted after he presented himself for interrogation.
Bakhtash said interrogation from the accused had been completed and his case was being referred to an authorized tribunal in Herat by next week for a verdict.
