Taliban Dissolves 5 Anti-Corruption Bodies in Afghanistan

Friday, 11/18/2022

A decree attributed to Hibatullah Akhundzada, the Taliban leader, has abolished five anti-corruption offices in Afghanistan.

The three-article decree obtained by Afghanistan International has assigned the responsibilities of these dissolved bodies to military institutions.

The dissolved bodies include the General Directorate for Combating Major Crimes of Administrative Corruption in the Ministry of Interior Affairs; the Directorate for Combating Major Crimes of Administrative Corruption in the General Directorate of Intelligence and Attorney General Office; the Court for Combating Serious Crimes of Administrative Corruption within the Supreme Court, and the Judicial Center for Combating Major Crimes.

The Taliban leadership has assigned the duties and responsibilities of the abolished institutions to the General Directorate of Criminal Investigations of the Ministry of Interior Affairs and the Military Court.

The Taliban dissolved the institutions related to major crimes of administrative corruption while many reports have been published in the past year of corruption within the Taliban.

Despite the widespread complaints about corruption by the Taliban members, the group has not responded to these reports.
