Presidential spokesperson Sediq Sediqqi reacted to presidential runner Rahmatullah Nabil’s claims regarding the release of Khalilullah Ferozi, the former CEO of Kabul Bank.

Nabil had earlier accused President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani of releasing Mr. Ferozi against $30 million election funds commitment.

Nabil claimed in Twitter post Ghani released Ferozi last week after receiving $30 million contributions to his campaign team.

“According to a credible source @ashrafghani released Khalil Firozy one of the prime suspect of Kabul Bank scandal last week after contributions of USD 30 million to his campaign camp. @ashrafghani was also part of SmartCity deal in which he fired his legal adviser M. A Mohamadi,” he said.

Replying to Nabil’s allegations, Sediqqi said in a Twitter post “These sources are so misleading that they can even misled a well known politician. This has no truth in it Nabil sahib, because of his deteriorating health conditions the Gov has put him under severe house arrest.”
