MPs want officials grilled over Mansour visit to Ghazni

MPs want officials grilled over Mansour visit to Ghazni

Oct 14, 2015 - 18:48

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon or lower house of parliament on Wednesday decided to summon top security officials over the arrival and stay of Talibaninfo-icon’s supreme leader Mullahinfo-icon Mansour in central Ghazni province.

Lawmaker from Ghanzi Mohammad Arif Rahmani said Mullah Mansour arrived in Nawa district last week and stayed there for five days, while local and central security officials were well aware of the visit.

“The question is why the National Security Council and security forces did not take any step when they were aware of Mullah Mansour presence,” he said, adding Mansour had come to the district to organise and lead operations against the government.

He asked lawmakers to summon security bosses to provide information about Mansour’s visit and government’s reaction in this regard.

Speaker Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi said the officials concerned should answer lawmakers queries that why they did not take any measure against Mansour.

Ibrahimi directed the house internal security commission to summon security officials and if they could not convince the commission, the committee of panel heads would make a decision in this regard.

The newly-appointed governor of Ghazni province had also confirmed the coming of Mullah Mansour to Nawa district.
