PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Kabulinfo-icon and Islamabad have been urged to remove an Afghan refugees’ official on charges of fund embezzlement.

The call was issued by Afghan Refugees’ Advisory Council head Wilayat Khan at a news conference at the Peshawar Press Club.

He blamed Director of Afghan Refugees Dr Abdul Hamid Jalili of misappropriating funds for the Afghans living in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.

Khan claimed Dr Jalili, having links with influential people in Afghanistaninfo-icon, was involved in massive corruption and refused to alleviate the suffering of refugees.

Jalili allegedly embezzled funds worth millions of rupees meant for rebuilding flood-affected Afghan refugees’ houses in Azakhel camp.

Khan said large-scale fraud was committed in the hajjinfo-icon quota for Afghan refugees. Jalili reportedly took bribes from returning refugees.

Flanked by members of the Advisory Council, Waliyat asked Pakistani and Afghan governments as well as the UNHCR to sack Jalili immediately.
