Reporting on accusations of tax evasion that brought him on an Interpol ‘most wanted’ list against the candidate for Afghan agriculture minister Mohammad Yaqub Haidari, Reuters quoted a “biography of Haidari compiled by the Afghanistan Analysts Network [that] cited a recent television interview in which he said he once ran an agricultural import-export company that did business in eastern Europe and Russia. His current business is focused on construction and information technology, as well as agricultural products, the profile said.”
