Common Afghans impersonated as journalists to flee Afghanistan: Reports

| @indiablooms | 12 Nov 2021, 01:01 pm

Kabul:  National Union of Journalists in Afghanistan has claimed that a large number of common people have impersonated as journalists to flee the war-torn country.

The Union has claimed that non-journalistic bodies in Afghanistan have not only enlisted their close friends and relatives in the evacuation process as Afghan journalists but have also embezzled a large amount of national and international financial aids, reports Khaama Press.

Head of the Union Masroor Lutfi told Khaama Press that there are some media who are selling certificated Afghan journalists in the black market and added that the Union can substantiate the claim with documents.

“The so-called journalists’ advocates in Afghanistan have never been journalists and they have been utilizing the names of journalists to take out relatives and friends,” Lutfi was quoted as saying by the news agency.
