SUBJECT: LEAHY VETTING REQUEST: JAMAL MIR JAMAL
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 biodata of Jamal Mir Jamal, candidate to be Criminal
Investigation Director for District 15 of Kabul.
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.
