Abdul Waheed Farzayee, senior member of the Afghan Lawyers Union, stated, “The process for the removal of the deputy governor is questionable.” According to the second deputy governor, he is not still aware of the allegations against him. Mr. Farzayee explained that according to article 20 (5) of Da Afghanistan Bank the second deputy governor should be given a chance to defend himself. Furthermore, the first deputy has also questioned the process of decision making at the High Council of Da Afghanistan Bank since he was asked to leave the meeting after which the decision to remove the second deputy governor was taken. Mr. Farzayee emphasized that the due process should be followed while making a decision in a public office.
