60,000 Afghan Police Are Illiterate
60,000 Afghan Police Are Illiterate

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) have stated that statistics show Afghanistan security institutions are struggling with the issue of illiteracy among its staff – especially those in the police force.

According to UNESCO, about 70 percent of police officers are illiterate. However, according to the Afghan Ministry of Interior (MoI), under which the police services fall, serious efforts are underway to teach officers to read and write.

The Ministry says that by the end of 2016 at least 13,000 of those 60,000 officers should be literate.

Deputy Minister of Interior for Administrative Affairs Kiramuddin Yawar, confirmed that about 60,000 police officers and police personnel are illiterate.

This comes after a UN sponsored investigation recently found that top Afghan officials at the Ministry of Interior systematically ignore complaints of corruption against the police.

Based on the report, almost 2,000 complaints were referred to the Inspector General's office in the Afghan Interior Ministry during the previous year - of which only nine cases were referred to legal institutions for follow ups.

According to the report, police officials have been a major barrier in terms of referring cases to court.

The report apparently states that the majority of the complaints filed were regarding the illegalities inside the police, involvement of officials in corruption and other issues.

The Afghan National Police (ANP) is the primary police force of Afghanistan, serving as a single law enforcement agency all across the country. The agency is under the responsibility of Afghanistan's Ministry of Interior.
