Nangarhar justice official detained over bribery charge

Nov 01, 2016 - 15:17

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): An official of the Justice Department in eastern Nangarhar province has been arrested red-handed accepting 100,000 Pakistani rupees in bribe, an anti-corruption official said on Tuesday.

The anti-corruption regional office head, Ahmad Shah Nabi Momand, said the accused had been using different pretexts to delay a legal case of a person at the justice department for one and a half years.

Momand said his department had sent twice letters to the justice department for addressing the legal matter, which remained unresolved.

On Monday, the justice department official was arrested while taking 100,000 rupees in bribe along with some utility bills.

Momand said the said official had been arrested three years ago on similar charges. Several officials had been arrested over corruption charges and referred to the judicial organs, he said.
