The Afghan Attorney General Office (AGO) officials said Thursday that $729 million from the embezzled Kabul Bank money is still missing, said Khaama Press.

Azizi further added that the Attorney General Office has resumed work on Kabul Bank scandal case.
He said the former Central Bank – De Afghanistan Bank chief Abdul Qadir Fitrat who escaped from the country following the collapse of the bank is being chased through Interpol.
According to Azizi, at least 19 people including the former Central Bank chief had bailed, but the government will bring them back into custody.
