Kabul (BNA) As much as fight against terrorists has sophisticate dimensions in Afghanistan, likewise fight against corruption is wide and has complex measurements.
BNA analyst writes, government with coordination of international community and its allies is commitment on counter-terrorism, criminal networks particular fight against corruption and has taken practical and serious steps in this regard as well.
There is no doubt that government has taken positive steps toward fighting against corruption in Afghanistan, reforms in judicial organs, approval of national anti-corruption strategy, establishing justice and judicial center for heavy anti-corruption, approval of laws for support of employees’ recruitment and transparency in government offices’ financial affairs and pursuit of usurpation cases of government properties and land are the main achievements of government in the latest years, but don’t forgot that fight against corruption is not possible in short-term, this phenomenon beside other calamities caused by war on terror prevent our society from progressing and prosperity.
Meanwhile, if the government victories and overcome on problems are common achievements, failures are also common.
Mohammad Ashraf Ghani President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan while speaking at an annual anti-corruption conference analyzed government measurements, challenges and ways to overcome in this phenomenon said; “Within the last five years aiming to fight against corruption we laid down the legal frameworks, approval of 450 laws and regulations about fight against corruptions, law on protection of administration corruption reporters, law on registration and investigation properties of officials and high-ranking employees is the fundamental measurements of government against corruptions”.
These statements clearly explicit that government succeeded to create legal opportunity for fight against corruption within the last years. As President Ghani expressed that effective and purposeful fight against corruption need strong legislative platform, if there were no laws and regulations we will never succeed in ending corruption in Afghanistan.
Despites of efforts and implemented measurements the government never told that the measurements and actions is enough regarding fight against corruption, but clearly stated that there are problems on counter corruption in Afghanistan.
Sarwar Danesh Second Vice-President pointing to the issue said, the government has been successful in approval of laws and regulations for fighting against corruption, but has failed in institutionalization in this regard.
Only government not able to fight against corruption, the efforts will be effective while the people, civil society, relevant organs and government offices are jointly and coordinately work together for annihilating the heinous phenomenon.
