KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Officials of four private domestic companies on Monday set up a protest tent in capital Kabul, claiming a Turkish company has been refusing to pay their $650,000 arrears.

About 15 stakeholders of the four firms (Samir Durokhshan, Afghan Plastreen, Istalif-i-Naween and Abdul Hakim) set up the protest camp in Lala township located in Qasaba area of Kabul City.

Massoud Ahmad, owner of Samir Durokhshan firm, said five years ago the four companies had completed the boundary walls of five blocks of the Lala township under a contract with Turkish Company Oyagar Qalib.

Ahmadi said the domestic firms, after completing their work, referred to the Ministry of Urban Development and Housing, the headquarters of Khan Sazi and Attorney General Office about the issue, but to no avail.

Ahmad Farid, another stakeholder, without going into details, accused the Turkish firm of deception and said the firm had a deceit case against it in the AGO.

Haji Islamuddin Sher Pacha, a shareholder of the Turkish firm, acknowledged that the four companies had completed their work in the township four years ago; but their payment delayed because they had not yet cleared the government tax.

But Ahmadi said the four firms had paid their taxes.

According to Ahmadi, the Turkish company reserved no right to ask for the tax of these companies. He claimed the company in cooperation with a number of government officials wanted avoid payment of the money.

He warned they would continue their sit-in protest and would not let anyone work in the township if their money was not paid.
