IRIN, 3 December 2014

The former UN news agency (now independent), in a report about Afghan president Ashraf Ghani’s expected presentation of his reform agenda at the London conference quotes from the draft document from Christine Roehrs’ recent AAN dispatch:

“Ghani is expected to use his keynote speech on 4 December to unveil his reform programme aimed, among other things, at tackling corruption.

A draft of the programme, leaked to the Afghanistan Analysts Network, highlights a series of reforms including an ‘independent anti-corruption mission with time-bound prosecution powers’, the ‘reform of the Supreme Audit Agency’, and the formation of a ‘national procurement board that will manage all large-value contracts”’.”
