Political interference stymied an investigation into the collapse of Afghanistan's largest bank, according to an independent report of how the men at Kabul Bank and their friends and relatives got rich off $861 million in fraudulent loans.
Drago Kos, chairman of the committee, told reporters at a news conference in Kabul that Afghan officials were "deferring questions to political parties" rather than acting independently to investigate, prosecute and try the case.
"We also see some cases of direct political interference from above," Mr. Kos said.
