SIGAR investigates cash transfers to Afghanistan


Kabul: The Office of the US Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction “SIGAR” says that the Biden administration is blocking the investigation of the money that has been sent to Afghanistan under the name of humanitarian aid in the past year.

According to the Bloomberg report SIGAR said they wanted to investigate the $1.1 billion in cash aid sent to Afghanistan’s central bank over the past year.

Today, Wednesday it reported that SIGAR’s investigation into cash sent has been thwarted by some American government institutions.

John Sopko, the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction, said in a report issued late Tuesday night that his office “for the first time in its history is unable this quarter to provide Congress and the American people with a full accounting of this US government spending due to the noncooperation of several US government agencies.”

He added that the US Agency for International Development and the Ministry of Treasury of this country refused to provide information about the 1.1 billion dollars of cash that was sent to Afghanistan under the control of the Taliban, and the US State Department did not give them the desired information either.

Based on SIGAR’s report, the US Department of International Development and the US State Department have said that the ongoing US aid is humanitarian and is not part of the budget that SIGAR oversees.

The US special inspector has also said that the current situation in Afghanistan is similar to the situation under the rule of the Taliban in the nineties.

According to him, women now face significant risks, including reduced security and lack of access to education and health care.
