Administrative graft on its peak in Ghazni: official

Administrative graft on its peak in Ghazni: official

Sep 11, 2013 - 19:31

GHAZNI CITY (PANinfo-icon): So far a dozen government employees have been arrested on corruption and bribery charges since March in southern Ghazni province, an official said on Wednesday.

Property manager at the Ghazni municipality, Abdul Hai, was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly accepting Pakistani rupees 20, 000 (about $200) in bribe from a vendor in order not to destroy his illegal shop along a road, the prosecutor’s office head, Abdul Rashid Abid, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The municipality employee was caught red-handed by National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) agents in cooperation with people after the shopkeeper had complained, he said.

He said administrative corruption in Ghazni had reached its climax. He asked people to help the government identify corrupt officials.

A Ghazni City resident, Mohammad Asif, claimed corrupt officials were released soon after their arrest. He said some educationinfo-icon department employees were arrested on bribery charges, but freed soon afterwards.

Abid explained some detained officials were either bailed out or released on healthinfo-icon ground.
