Former Central Bank Governor should be Sent Back to Kabul from the US

President said in a meeting with Afghan parliamentarians that we should pressure on the US to extradite former Central Bank Governor Abdul Qadir Fitrat to Kabul.

Fitrat left for the U.S. last year, because he feared for his safety after investigating fraud allegations at the country’s largest lender. He had opened an investigation into Kabul Bank, and he later discovered that his life was in threat and that the government was refusing to prosecute those allegedly in fraudulent loans.

The government condemned his decision, adding that he himself was under investigation for fraud.

President Karzai also called on Afghan lawmakers and the international community to do more to stump out corruption. He cited corruption as the major cause of economic slowdown and called for unity to tackle the challenge.
