Kabul, Afghanistan – Afghan police working with American agents arrested an Afghan man on charges of stealing more than a half million dollars from an agricultural development fund supported by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The money was insured, and there was no actual loss of U.S. taxpayer funds.

Afghan National Police made the arrest on April 2 in the northern city Mazar-e-Sharif, along with agents from the USAID Office of Inspector General (OIG). The arrest followed a long-running joint investigation by Afghan law enforcement agencies, USAID OIG and the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR).

“This arrest demonstrates effective partnership between U.S. and Afghan authorities can help ensure those who seek to divert assistance from the Afghan people are held to account,” USAID Acting Inspector General Michael Carroll said.
