Afghanistan general attorney spokesman Basir Azizi said on Sunday in a press conference that the office began the investigation on 22 ex-ministers and other high ranking officials’ cases suspected to corruption to show the law is equally implemented for people.
Afghanistan anti-corruption justice center was inaugurated on June 30, after it was discussed among officials for two years.
President Ghani said during the inauguration ceremony that the center was to help boost capacity against corruption and bring confidence.
Experts believe corruption is deeply rooted in almost all governmental entities and fighting against it takes time.
It is worth mentioning this is not the first time that investigation on high ranking officials suspected to corruption has begun, but no top officials have practically been punished yet.
It is believed most corrupt cases belong to powerful figures who have political supports.
