Civil Aviation Authority denies Hekmatyar's allegations
The Afghanistan Civil Aviation Authority (ACAA) in a statement issued last night denied allegations of the Hezb-e-Islami chief Gulbuddin Hekmatyar who had asserted that unnamed and unmarked planes are involved in smuggling out of Hamid Karzai's international airport.
Afghan voice agency (AVA)_Hekmatyar in yesterday's Friday sermon said: "Why are unnamed and unmarked planes coming? Why are they being guarded by another agency? They take whatever they want without any fear or hindrance. Gold, money, dollars, these are the things being smuggled nothing else."
Thousands of kilograms of narcotics and gold are being discovered and yielded to the concerned authorities every year, the Civil #Aviation_Authority said last night while denying the allegations of #Hekmatyar.
The confiscation of narcotics and gold is possible only because of the tight security and monitoring at the airport, said the Civil Aviation Authority statement.
Before spreading rumors all political leaders of the country must share the issue with the authority in order to avoid public mistrust on national institutions, the statement issued by Civil Aviation Authority stressed.
