The former head of the Afghan central bank who has fled to the United States will be prosecuted for his role in the failure of the nation's largest private lender, the Afghan attorney general's office said Tuesday.
The Afghan attorney general's office has arrested two employees of the nation's electoral commission and two people working in the money transfer business on allegations of fraud in the September parliamentary elections, the deputy attorney general said Thursday.
Mr. Nazari told reporters at the attorney general's office that prosecutors were investigating at least five cases of election bribery involving sums ranging from $80,000 and $220,000.
Deputy Attorney General Rahmatullah Nazari denied allegations that Mr. Karzai had ordered the attorney general to investigate.
