Yet another report on Afghanistan's corruption unveiled

corruption 2A report by the Afghan Independent Media Consortium (AIMC) and 8am Newspaper has revealed extensive corruption and misuse of power within Ministry of Refugees and Repatriations (MoR&R).

Confirmed by the High Office of Oversight and Anti-Corruption, the report lists sale of key positions within the Ministry, transfer of money to the private bank accounts of the Minister, embezzlement in salaries of employees and funds of the Ministry as the massive corruption cases taking place in the Ministry.

Meanwhile, the Ministry has denied the accusation and said a committee would be formed to investigate the charges.

“Our initial reviews show that 90 percent of these allegations are not true. The remaining 10 percent where they claim that they have evidence in the form of documents, a committee will be formed to investigate the charges,” Tolo News quotes Islamuddin Jurat, the spokesman of the MoR&R.

Afghan Parliamentarians reacted strongly and demanded a probe into the charges.

Reports as such put Afghanistan’s future at stake, as they indicate the failure of the government to tackle corruption. Continuous assistance of the world community depends on the Afghan government’s efforts in curbing corruption that still remains rampant within various government institutions.
