Nimroz transporters accuse ACCI of graft

trucksA number of transporters in Nimroz raised their voices against the issue of graft hindering their business activities.

According to Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN), the transport unions and drivers have warned of going on strike if the issue of bribery was not resolved by authorities.

The source adds the drivers had demanded the Afghanistan Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ACCI) head be sacked for involvement in graft.

Jan Mohammad, a transporter in Nimroz, claimed that drivers having strong connection at ACCI were permitted five times a month to transfer goods to Kabul or Kandahar; however, drivers with no connection in ACCI were allowed only once a month and were required to pay 15,000 AFN for permission for goods transfer.

Another driver claimed that ACCI had set up an office on the border with Iran, illegally charging 300 AFN from each driver.

In the meantime, ACCI has denied the allegations and called them baseless.

ACCI Deputy Chief Khan Jan Alokozay said the issue concerned the transport department of Nimroz province.
