NSC Decides to Register  Vehicles Countrywide

KABUL - The National Security Council (NSC) has approved in principle the procedure for registration of vehicles including non-custom paid (NCP) and biometric entry of their owners.
The NCS met with President Ashraf Ghani in the chair at the Presidential Palace on Tuesday evening, a statement from the palace to Pajhwok Afghan News said.
The meeting appreciated the Afghan security forces’ performance against the country’s enemies and assessed the security situation of Helmand, Kunduz, Baghlan, Nangarhar, Uruzgan and some other provinces.
The statement said the meeting also directed relevant organs to take decisive actions for elimination of militants.
After evaluating the country’s security situation, the meeting approved in principle the procedure for registration of all vehicles including NCP and storing their owners’ biometric data across the country.
The vehicular registration plan has been prepared by the NSC in coordination with relevant organs. Based on the procedure, security organs are responsible to force owners of vehicles to register their vehicles and their biometric data, the statement said.
“The aim of the plan is to prevent car suicide bombings and identify owners of vehicles being used in criminal incidents.”
The statement said the ministries of interior and telecommunications and information technology as well as the NSC were tasked with preparing executive plan for the procedure in the next two weeks.
The meeting also approved a regulation simplifying extradition of Afghan suspects and defendants in foreign countries.
Based on the regulation, humanitarian rights of the suspects and defendants and prisoners would be protected by both the sides, the statement said. (Pajhwok)
