E.O. 12958 N/A
TAGS: PHUM SNAR PINR PTER AF
SUBJECT: LEAHY VETTING REQUEST: ANP RANK REFORM OF ANCOP POSITIONS
(PART THREE OF THREE CABLES)


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 fifty (50) Afghan National Police
(ANP) field grade officers selected for positions in the Afghan
National Civil Order Police (ANCOP). These names are submitted as
part of the of ANP Rank Reform process. When there are individuals
with one name, Post has made a good faith effort to ensure that
these individuals actually only have one name. For individuals for
whom date of birth, ethnicity, and/or father's name is not
available, Post has worked with CSTC-A and the MOI to retrieve this
data. Post will inform the Department immediately if additional
data becomes available. This is the third in a series of three
cables.

3. IMPORTANT NOTE: The international community recently 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.
