|Function/Grade||Ex HIG? Jamiati? Commander in Farah|
|History and Biodata||
A western diplomat suggested, for example, that USPI hired Zabet Jalil in Farah even though there were allegations that he had killed a USPI advisor and three of his security guards in early 2006. The attack was officially associated with the Taliban, but rumours linked it to Zabet Jalil.
It seems that the security companies involved have not attempted to broker a deal with the insurgents. Apart from one company belonging to the son of a prominent former HIG? Jamiati? commander from Bala Buluk, Zabet Jalil, most involved in both transportation and security are owned by Heratis. ‘Most of these people don’t know who the local Taleban are to approach them, or they don’t like to come to terms with them either.’ As for Jalil Zabet there is no lack of acquaintance, but it is in the form of a bitter enmity. Zabet Jalil (Farah province in the west) is also said to have looted people’s properties and grabbed thousands of jeribs of state-owned land, in the process reinforcing the feudal order.(20120424)
