The Governor of Samangan, Khairullah Anosh, confirms that the former insurgent and his group have been given back some of their weapons and will be recruited into the ranks of the newly-formed Afghan Local Police (ALP) in Dara-ye Soof. This contradicts the official policy to recruit only individuals and not groups into the A.L.P. and to allow local elders to introduce candidates for the jobs - principles that have been laid down in order to alleviate fears that dubious people might be recruited into the ALP.(20110426) The head of the Provincial Council 2009, Dr. Zia said, "Governor Anosh is a weak person and is also a sick person. He is an ineffective leader for the government and for Samangan province."
