Reporter: Latifa Sahil
The Attorney General’s Office has announced that it will examine the claim of General Habib Ahmadzai, a former security advisor to the President, in the presence of representatives of the Ulema Council, the media, the Afghan Women’s Network, and civil society organizations publicly. Mr. Ahmadzai told media a few weeks ago that some of the president’s man had been involved in the promotion of prostitution in the presidential palace, and a number of parliamentary candidates have introduced a number of women to the House of Representatives instead of having sex with them. Following the claims, the Presidential Palace rejected General Habib Ahmadzai’s statements and asked the prosecutor office to investigate this case as soon as possible.
Jamshaid Rasouli, a spokesman for the Attorney General, has also told media that the official letter of the office has been sent to civil institutions to introduce representatives to complete the investigation process of Habib Ahmadzai’s claim. Mr. Rasouli also added that the letter stated that the law on the investigation of criminal cases was one of the powers of the Attorney General of the country, and therefore a committee was set up to investigate Mr. Ahmadzai’s claim.
