Zamarai Paikan Sentenced To 3 Years In Prison

Former Afghan National Civil Order Police (ANCOP) commander Zamarai Paikan has been sentenced to three years in prison, the Office of the Attorney General said on Tuesday.

He was charged with misuse of authority by the appellate court of the Anti-Corruption Justice Center, and convicted of corruption charges.

The statement said that Paikan was accused of appointing his son “illegally” and providing him with military personnel and equipment.

In a trial in his absence in December 2017, Paikan had been handed an eight-year term by a primary court.

He was arrested by security forces in late August this year.
