KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) personnel raided and searched the office and house of the first deputy speaker of the Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon, Humayon Humayon, after allegation he had installed a phone tapping devise.

Humayon told lawmakers at today’s session that the house administrative penal in his absence had sent a letter to the NDS for searching his office and house.

In response to the letter, the president ordered his house and office search and the NDS personnel obtained the search warrant from the court.

“The letter that calls for a search of my house and office is dispatched from the Wolesi Jirga under the signature of second Deputy Speaker Nazir Ahmadzai,” he said.

Humayon termed the search of his house against the law and said security personnel found nothing and left without apology.

He told the lawmakers: “Are you ready If I send formal letters to the NDS for searching your houses?”

A close relative of Humayun said the house and office of the deputy speaker were searched last Wednesday.

Second deputy speaker Ahmadzai wanted speak, but other lawmakers prevented him.

Fawzia Kofi, a lawmaker from Badakhshan province, said private issues should not be brought to the house and must be settled outside the house.

The NDS media office could not be reached for comment on Humayun’s house and office search.

Earlier, Mohammad Iqbal Safi, a lawmaker from central Kapisa province and Senate Chairman Fazal Hadi Muslimyar had claimed Humayun had created a system though which telephonic conversations could be traced.
