(Tolo News) – Attorney General’s Office Tuesday issued a travel ban on 21 decision-making electoral officials including Head of the Afghan Independent Election Comission (IEC).

Attorney General’s Spokesperson, Amanullah Eman, told TOLOnews that a travel ban has been imposed on 21 electoral officials including Fazl Ahmad Manawi, Head of IEC.

The travel ban was issued after the Independent Election Commission refused to cooperate with Attorney General’s Office and elections special tribunal in investigations into electoral frauds in the parliamentary poll.

“We hold cases of ministers and other top government officials who are on travel ban. Nobody can be exempted,” Mr Eman told TOLOnews.

Yesterday evening Independent Election Commission said in a statement that it was ready to help justice organisation with the probes into electoral cases.

Mr Manawi said although providing such a cooperation opposes the laws, the commission will still cooperate with the justice organisations.

“The term “travel ban” has turned into a fashion of Attorney General’s Office. They think it’s very important.

Some two months ago also a travel ban was issued on all IEC officials,” Mr Manawi told TOLOnews.

Attorney General’s Spokesperson said the sealed ballot boxes in IEC will be moved to the elections special tribunal for a recount in a few days.
