KABUL (Pajhwok): The Wolesi Jirga Special Anti-Corruption Commission has introduced two lawmakers to the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) over failure to register their assets.

A member of the commission, who wished anonymity, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the assets record wing of the lower house had referred NasimaNiazai, a lawmaker from Helmand province and Ahmad Shah Ramazan from Balkh province, to the AGO for failing to unveil their assets.

The source added the mentioned lawmakers had not recorded their wealth with the wing.

But MasoomAminzada, the lower house secretariat chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the Anti-Corruption Commission had not informed him regarding the matter.

MP NasimaNiazai said the Administrative Office of the Presidential Palace had told her about problems in her assets records form.

She added she failed to record her personal home and a 12-year-old account in the Kabul Bank.

Nasima said she had verbally addressed the issue and there was no other mistake in the form. She added she was not involved in corruption and ready to answer any questions.

Despite multiple attempts, Ahmad Shah Ramazan could not be reached for comment in this regard.
