Money market reopens after union head release

Money market reopens after union head release

Oct 31, 2013 - 18:51

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): The money market in Kabul reopened following the release of the moneychangers’ union head by the Attorney General Office (AGO) on Thursday, an official said.

Earlier in the day, moneychangers closed the currency market in protest against the arrest of their union head, Haji Najibullah Akhtari.

Currency dealer and the union’s secretary Haji Hashim confirmed to Pajhwok Afghan News moneychangers called off their strike around 1pm and reopened the market.

Meanwhile, Akhtari said Haji Roohullah and Mohammad Ismail Noorzai, who run a joint business, had referred their dispute to him for resolution through a jirga.

He quoted Roohullah as saying Noorzai owed him millions of dollars -- a claim rejected by Noorzai.

Attended by Wolesi Jirga member Haji Sher Ali and some moneychangers, the jirgainfo-icon won an assurance from Noorzai to return the loan.

Akhtari said he did not give any guarantee the money would be returned, suggesting both sides should accept the jirga’s decision.
