Gen. Fayiz Appointed as Balkh’s New Acting Police Chief

KABUL – Gen. Mohammad Ajmal Fayiz was appointed as acting police chief of the northern Balkh province, replacing Gen. Abdul Raqib Mubariz, who was appointed to the post in mid-March.
His appointment comes a month after Mubariz was appointed to the post following a day of unrest in Mazar-e-Sharif city. The appointment was opposed by Atta Mohammad Noor, former Balkh governor and CEO of Jamiat-e-Islami Party.
Gen. Nematullah Haidari, the Recruitment Officer of the Ministry of Interior, said the decision was made as there was a need for Mubariz’s presence in another post.
He said President Ghani’s decree on Fayiz’s appointment will be issued within the next two days.
Fayiz has a bachelor’s degree from an England university and he has a Ph.D. in the military field from Turkey.
He has served in intelligence and investigative departments of the Ministry of Interior, Commander of Special Forces’ 333 Unit and as Commander of Special Forces’ 222 Unit.
