Steps to be taken to arrest 9 guards of Vice President Dostum

The Afghan government assures that practical steps will be taken to arrest nine security guards of the Vice President General Abdul Rashid Dostum over alleged kidnapping and sexual abuse of rival Ahmad Khan Ishchi.

President Ghani’s spokesman Haroon Chakhansuri told reporters on Wednesday that the Afghan Attorney General and the judicial institutions continue to their work with transparency.

He said arrest warrants have been issued and the Ministry of Interior is obliged to take practical steps as per the warrants.

Chakhansuri further added that the Attorney General has more authorities to take further steps if the nine security guards of General Dostum were not arrested.

Without providing further information, Chakhansuri said the media will be updated when further steps are taken.

The arrest warrants were issued on Monday after the men refused to appear before the Attorney General to respond regarding the alleged accusations.
