Top Faryab education officials held on corruption charges

Jul 29, 2017 - 19:29

MAIMANA (Pajhwok): The provincial educationinfo-icon department head and another senior official have been arrested on charges ranging from fraud, forgery and corruption in northern Faryab province, officials said on Saturday.

Farid Ghori, head of the provincial attorney’s office, said Ghulam Sakhi Bayan, the education department head, and Islamuddin Hatmi, human resources head at the department, had been detained on charges of fraud and corruption.

 “Corruption and bribery run in their veins, the education department head was previously involved in abuse of authority,” said Ghori.

The Provincial Attorney Office staff worked independently under the law and allowed no one to interfere in their affairs and decisions, said Ghori.

He said the people should support the attorney general office in putting hands on big fishes involved in corruption.

Provincial council chief Mohammad Sami Kheirkhah praised the attorney office for the move, saying every person involved in corruption should be arrested and punished in order to make them an example for others.
