The Afghan Ministry of Interior is planning to legalize carrying weapons and using armoured vehicles by the end of November. The statement came after the Afghan police and lawmakers faced off over the use of armoured vehicles and unregistered license plates.
“We hope to tackle all the technical problems by the end of Aqrab ( November 21), whether in the Ministry of Interior, in the National Assembly, in the Ministry of Finance or in the Traffic department. Hopefully, with the legalization of these vehicles, the concerns that exist among the people will be removed,” said Massoud Andarabi, the acting Minister of Interior.
According to a list of the Ministry of Interior, more than 110 members of the parliament have not received licenses for the weapons they are carrying.
A member of parliament admitted that he has eight weapons and mentioned the need to negate the issue.
“Five months ago we consulted the Ministry of Interior at the parliament’s security department, and we have licenses for our weapons,” said Khalid Assad, a member of parliament.
