A top Afghan prosecutor who has complained that the attorney general and others are blocking corruption cases against high-ranking government officials said Saturday that he was fired by Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
Deputy Attorney General Fazel Ahmed Faqiryar told the New York Times Saturday that he was fired for refusing to block corruption investigations in "the highest levels" of Karzai's government. Faqiryar told the Associated Press that he was forced to retire.
Imagine my (absence of) shock!
Karzai's minions are so collectively crooked that they have to screw their socks on in the morning!
