Police being evaluated in all provinces: Barmak

Police being evaluated in all provinces: Barmak

Dec 25, 2017 - 16:29

KABUL (Pajhwok): Interior Minister Wais Barmak on Monday said some politicians violated government recruitment rules, preventing reforms in the ministry.

Barmak, who appeared before the Wolesi Jirga or the lower house of parliament, told the lawmakers: “Let us recruit based on the need. Let us do our job. You have granted me the trust vote, if we appoint someone against the law or on ethnic lines you have the authority to ask me.”

He informed the MPs about creation of three committees tasked with evaluating police forces in all 34 provinces to provide basis for a new assignment.

The minister said: “We would announce soon that police personnel have no right to use a high ranking official in transfer and posting.”

“Reforms not possible under pressure from politicians,” he said, without naming anyone.
