KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): A primary court of the Anti-Corruption and Serious Crimes Unit on Monday sentenced five former police officers, including a provincial police chief, to three years in jail each in absentia.

The court handed down the verdict after hearing augments from both the sides. The convicts included former police chief for central Maidan Wardak province Khalil Andarabi.

The convicts had been accused of misuse of authority and embezzling 24 million afghanis allocated for logistics and food for police headquarters.

They included Mohammad Hussain, former deputy administrative officer of the police headquarters, Qudartullah, head former of logistic and food, Rahimullah, former head of planning and Mohammad Fahim, former accountant of Maidan Wardak Police headquarters.
They were all sentenced to three years in jail over corruption, fraud and misuse of authority.
The anti-corruption court, however, acquitted Mohammad Kabir, former logistic officer for lack of evidence against him.
