According to BNA, General Attorney Mohammad Isahq Alako in a news conference held yesterday told journalists that a number of lawmakers and senators of national assembly had personnel problems with Kabul mayor Mohammad Younis Nawandish and were trying to get privileges.

The area where the town is to be built belongs to the government.
“Qais Hassan is also responsive to Attorney General Office because of appointment of a person named Ahmadzai at Kabul International Airport, but he hasn’t respond to the office as being a lawmaker,” Mohammad Ishaq Alako further said.
General Attorney also recalled of speaker of House of People asking for residential houses for him and a number of his family members, but the demands had been rejected by Kabul mayor.
