Ex-Afghan military officers forced by Taliban to pay fines: reports

Taliban forced some Ex-Afghan military officers and governmental workers to pay heavy fines as they had been receiving salaries form the ex-government for years, according to sources.

Sources confirmed to Raha Press that Taliban officials in some districts have forced some ex-military officers and governmental workers to pay heavy fines from around 20,000 Afghanis to 40,000 Afghanis.

Taliban claimed these people had been receiving salaries form the ex-government for years and now they should pay fines, the sources added.

Six ex-military officers in Balkhab district of Sar-e-Pul province in condition of anonymity told Raha Press correspondent that they have to pay the fines as soon as possible.

Other sources in Behsud district of central Maidan Wardak Province also told Raha Press the same story, adding that the Behsud district governor has been assigned to collect a sum of one million and six hundred thousand Afghanis as a whole from ex-military officers and ex-governmental workers.

These people who have lost their jobs and are now unemployed said it is not possible for them to pay such a sum in the name of “fine” or whatever else as they have been unemployed for the past months and had no other source of incomes.

They furthered it is also against a general parole the Taliban claimed to have announced.
