There Is Corruption in Customs, But We Not Have Evidence: MoF

KABUL - The Afghan Ministry of Finance (MoF) launched a 3-day program, starting Wednesday, to celebrate Tax Week in Badam Bagh area of capital Kabul.
The purpose of this program is to inform taxpayers and to promote taxpaying culture in the country.
Amina Ahmadi, MoF’s Director-General of Revenue Department says that Afghanistan has had over 109 billion Afghani revenue in the past fiscal year.
“This includes customs, tax and non-tax revenues that have been added to the national treasury over the past year,” Ms. Ahmadi told DID Press.
According to Ms. Ahmadi, Afghanistan’s customs revenues alone amounted to more than 2 billion Afghanis.
However, corruption within government departments has caused much of Afghanistan’s revenue to be depleted before it enters the National Treasury.
“There is corruption in the offices, including in the Afghan customs, but there is no evidence to support the allegations,” added Ahmadi. (DID PRESS)
