Kabul Bank bosses jailed for massive fraud: court

KABUL – A special court in Afghanistan on Tuesday sentenced two senior executives to five years in jail for a multi-million-dollar fraud that caused the collapse of the Kabul Bank in 2010.

Judge Shamsul Rahman Shams read out the verdicts in court and said the men must pay back money they gained from the sophisticated network of corruption in which cash was used to buy homes in Britain, Switzerland and the United States.
