A source reported the expulsion of about 200 people from the ranks of the Taliban


MOSCOW, November 6. Taliban militants * have expelled from their ranks about 200 people who have abused their powers, a source in a special commission created by the Taliban told RIA Novosti. In October, Afghan Interior Ministry spokesman Qari Said Khosti said that the interim government of Afghanistan, appointed by the Taliban *, created a commission to cleanse its ranks from corrupt and unworthy persons. The new body was created from employees of three law enforcement agencies – the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the National Directorate of Security. Commissioners may in some cases use forceful methods to expel the corrupt persons they discovered from state structures. “About 200 people were expelled from their (Taliban – ed.) Ranks, and this process continues,” the commission member told RIA Novosti. Hosti's statement may refer to people who got positions with the help of relatives, criminals, people with a dubious past or officials who cause hatred of the local population. A source in the commission said the 200 expelled people were people who abused their positions in Afghanistan and used the name of the Taliban * for their own purposes. The Taliban are currently investigating the suspects. The source added that order and discipline in the cities have improved since the commission was created. In early August, the Taliban intensified their offensive against Afghan government forces, entered Kabul on August 15 and declared the war over the next day. During the last two weeks of August, a mass evacuation of Western citizens and Afghan collaborators was underway from the Kabul airport, which was under the protection of the US military. On the night of August 31, the US military left the Kabul airport, ending the almost 20-year US military presence in Afghanistan. At the beginning of September, the composition of the interim government of Afghanistan was announced, headed by Mohammad Hasan Akhund, who served as foreign minister during the first rule of the Taliban * and has been under UN sanctions since 2001. * Terrorist organization banned in Russia Taliban leader * appears in public for the first time in five years
