E.O. 12958 N/A
TAGS: PHUM SNAR PINR PTER AF
SUBJECT: LEAHY VETTING REQUEST: ANP RANK REFORM OF THE
COUNTER-NARCOTICS UNIT

1. This is an action request; please see paragraphs 2 and 3.

2. In order to comply with Leahy vetting requirements, this cable
forwards the names and biodata of 15 Afghan National Police (ANP)
field grade officers selected for positions in the Counter-Narcotics
Unit. When there are individuals with one name, Post has made a
good faith effort to ensure that these individuals actually only
have one name.

3. IMPORTANT NOTE: The international community has approved pay
increases for ANP company grade officers (captains and lieutenants);
however, pay increases for the field grade ANP personnel will not be
approved until completion of Rank Reform. Currently, ANP field
grade personnel earn less than their Afghan National Army (ANA)
equivalents, a situation that is causing severe morale problems.
Completion of the ANP Rank Reform process will significantly
alleviate deteriorating morale, which is why Post requests the
Department's expedited vetting and response at the earliest possible
date. Post greatly appreciates Department's strong support for
completing the ANP Rank Reform process.
