Afghan President issues decree to curb corruption
Kabul: The Afghan President has issued an ambitious list of proposed reforms aimed at fighting graft, bribery and nepotism. The move follows pressure from donor nations.
President Hamid Karzai`s 23-page decree orders officials to clear the attorney general`s office and the courts of languishing cases and do more than talk about bringing corrupt figures to justice.
The decree was issued yesterday. It`s like an executive order but is ambiguous about what happens to those who don`t comply.
Donor nations have long expressed concern about corruption within the Afghan government. Karzai has blamed international contracting procedures for some of the problem.
Billions pledged this month at a Tokyo conference are tied to a new monitoring process to assure that aid is not diverted by corrupt officials or mismanaged.
