Criminals, corrupt elements to face stricter actions: MoI
KABUL (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Interior (MoI) on Sunday warned corrupt elements to correct themselves otherwise they would be eradicated.
The decision was made during a high-level meeting focused on preparation of next year’s security plan
Kabul Police in its Headquarter, hosted the first meeting of security and civil service officials of capital Kabul with local representatives, heads of businesses associations and district chiefs for better coordination in improving security, solving problems and trust building between security forces and people.
Brig. Gen. Khushal Saadat, secretary security affairs at the MoI, who attended the meeting, said that a clearance campaign against corrupt figures was started.
He said police commanders who had no the capacity of working would be fired and further employments in the interior ministry would be based on merit and professionalism.
“The main challenge we faced now is crimes, criminals should rethink or they would be shot by police, the ministry ordered police to fire on those who disrespect law and engage in illegal activities,” he said.
Talking to Kabul people, Saadat said, “We are trying to bring reforms so it would strengthen public trust on police, but your cooperation is vital, enemies are trying to drag Afghanistan to the past, you should cooperate with us for your children who sacrifice their lives every day,”
Sayed Mohammad Roshandil, commander of 101 Kabul Asmayee Police, said the aim of the joint meeting was to hear suggestions of local representatives for preparing the next year’s security plan.
Brig. Gen. Massoud Andar, Kabul intelligence chief, also called people’s role in security important and said, “We want to use your views and suggestions for better security planning for the next year”
Sayed Parwizi, head of local representatives of 1st police district of Kabul, announced people’s cooperation in security maintainance but expressed concern about presence of drug addicts and sales of narcotics in the first police district.
He said drug addicts were involved in most of criminal cases. Police officers who have links with corrupt figures and robbers should be removed from their jobs because they defame police forces, he said.
Fazluddin Faizi, a local representative in sixth police district, also complained about criminal cases and open sales of drugs in Kabul and said, “We cooperate; but criminals should not be released, freeing criminals without trying them in the judicial system made people disappointed,”
Roshandil said suggestions and complaints of local representatives would be paid attention.
