Khairullah Khairkhwa – Taliban Minister of Information and Culture;
Khairkhwa was charged by the US of drug trafficking and of being a close associate of al Qaeda, allegations Khairkhwa denies. Khairkhwa was released from Quantanamo without trial.

Mohammad Nabi Omari; Governor of Eastern Khost Province.
Mohammed Nabi Omari was one of 71 individuals held in Qauntanamo deemed too innocent to charge, Released without trial.

On these grounds the US Biden government has frozen all Afghanistan government accounts, effectively sabatoging the Afghanistan economy already badly damaged by decades of war. With no money to pay for the salaries of public servants. Drs, nurses teachers, police and administrators, have all been left unpaid.
As well as this the private banks have also had their accounts effectively frozen by the US punitive action against the Taliban government. As a result normal Afghani citizens cannot withdraw money to buy food or pay their bills, effectively amounting to collective punishment of all Afghanis.
