Kabul Bank’s special tribunal urges the government to take the verdict seriously

Kabul-Bank1Kabul Bank’s special tribunal head Shams-ul-Rahman Shams said Monday that the government must heed the verdict of the court on the 22 defendants, which will be handed down tomorrow.

“We demand the executive power to take the court’s decision seriously as we decide the fate of the 22 defendants during tomorrow’s hearing,’ said Mr. Shams.

His comments voice the widespread mistrust of the judicial system in Afghanistan as court decisions are often ignored, especially when they involve high-ranking officials.

Two more hearings will follow after tomorrow’s preliminary hearing, before the final verdict of the Supreme Court.

Kabul Bank was on the verge of collapse in 2010 after a financial scandal that involved embezzlement of about USD 900mn.
