President Ashraf Ghani suspended his legal advisor, Abdul Ali Mohammadi, over the signing of a controversial housing scheme project, according to sources close to the Presidential Palace. Mohammadi allegedly facilitated the signing of the “Smart City Township” project between a key Kabul Bank defaulter Khalilullah Frozi and the Ministry of Urban Development Affairs.(20151117) Mohammadi said the reason he rejected to resign was because several high-ranking government officials were involved in the case but its responsibility would fall only on his shoulder if the resignation would have taken place. The former legal adviser to the President added that he did not surrendered to pressure so finally he was suspended. According to Ahmadi, certain elements are trying to hinder the payback-process of Kabul Bank loans. Abdul Ali Mohammadi has claimed that the entire process of the controversial Smart City housing project with convicted Kabul Bank defaulterl Khalilullah Frozi was supervised by the president himself. Mohammadi said Ghani approved a Kabul Bank debt recuperation procedure that mapped out a repayment package for Frozi.(20151214)
