KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Security bosses on Monday briefed Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon members about the country’s security situation behind closed doors, but some lawmakers said the session did not deserve to be in-camera.

In the wake of growing incidents of violence, the lower house summoned top security officials on Monday to brief lawmakers about the country’s security situation.

Mohammad Alem Saee, a lawmaker from Takhar province, told reporters after the meeting, that the briefing by the top security officials did not deserve to be delivered behind closed doors.

“In the past six months, all discussions took place behind closed doors and the government fears if the public got aware of realities they will not vote to the president,” he said.

He said no major information was delivered regarding security situation in the meeting, therefore it was not worth to be held behind the closed doors.

Sher Mohammad Akhundzada, a lawmaker from Helmand province, said the meeting remained secret due to negligence of the house administrative penal.

“The speaker had consensus with the minister, therefore I did not get the time to ask questions so I left the meeting,” he said.

It is worth mentioning that Talibaninfo-icon attacks have increased in recent weeks, resulting in civilians and security personnel casualties.
