Afghan market leaders deny Reuters report on “Stalking the Taliban in Afghan Currency Markets”

exchangersAfghan currency market officials strongly rejected a recent Reuters report alleging that Taliban are financed through some Afghan currency exchangers.

Head of the Kabul Currency Exchange Market Najibullah Akhtari denied the involvement of currency dealers in serving Taliban financiers and said he has not witnessed any such activity in Kabul.

However, Afghan Central Bank Director Noorullah Delawari confirmed the involvement of Haji Khairullah in financing the Taliban.

“We were informed about this by the UN. They told us that he’s involved in money laundering. We have sent letter to the presidential palace in this regard,” Delawri told TOLOnews.
