Ghani Suspends His Legal Advisor Over Controversial Housing Project

President Ashraf Ghani on Thursday night suspended his legal advisor, Abdul Ali Mohammadi, over the signing of a controversial housing scheme project, according to sources close to the Presidential Palace.

Mohammadi allegedly facilitated the signing of the “Smart City Township” project between a key Kabul Bank defaulter Khalilullah Frozi and the Ministry of Urban Development Affairs.

The contract – worth over $900 USD – was signed about two weeks ago with Frozi, who was sentenced to 10 years in jail in November last year and was fined $137 million USD after being found guilty of defaulting on loans that led to the collapse of Kabul Bank in 2010.

However, after mounting criticism of government, Ghani cancelled the contract within a week and ordered an investigation into the case.
