QALAT/KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Local officials on Wednesday said the justice deparment director of southern Zabul province has been suspended over alleged sexual harassment of a male staff member.

A video clip shows justice department head Gulab Mohammad Khatira sking his subordinate for sex. The clip recently went viral on social media networks.

The Zabul governor’s spokesman, Gul Islam Siyal, told Pajhwok Afghan News they were aware of the video clip.

He said the governor’s house had suspended Khatir and his case had been referred to judicial organs for thorough investigations.

However, Khatir claimed he had been the victim of a conspiracy hatched by land mafia.“After my appointment, I have been taking on land-grabbers to reclaim governmental property in Zabul.”

Khatir said the manager of government cases section at the justice department, who had links with mafia groups, had appointed the boy appearing in the video.

“This video was captured few months ago; the boy has forged the clip and the voice on it is not mine,” he maintained.

“The problem was resolved that time and the boy reappointed to his position, but I don’t know why the video was released again on social media,” he added.

On the other hand, a number of Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon members said the issue should be fully investigated.Shinki Karokhel said the justice director must be sacked and his case referred to the attorney office.
