DAB freezes 6.5m afghanis assets of ex-chief Ahmadi

KABUL (Pajhwok): Da Afghanistan Bank (DAB) has frozen 6.5 million afghanis of Ajmal Ahmadi, former chief of the bank, an official said Thursday.

Ajmal Ahmadi was a close person to former President Ashraf Ghani, who served as acting chief of Da Afghanistan Bank even he was denied the trust vote by the parliament for the slot.

An official of DAB, who wished to go unnamed, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the bank has frozen around 6.5 million afghanis from the salary of former acting chief of the bank, Ajmal Ahmadi.

This comes as the caretaker cabinet of the Taliban had earlier announced that the bank accounts of former officials of the government would be closed.

According to the official, Ahmadi’s money may also have been frozen based on the cabinet’s decision.

Pajhwok tried to contact ZabihullahMujahid, deputy information and culture minister, about the issue, and Bilal Karimi, his secretary, but they did not respond.
