RAMALLAH — The Palestinian Authority has cracked down on a former senior official appointed to uncover corruption.
PA security forces raided the home of Fahmi Shabaneh in the West Bank city of Jericho in March 2010. Shabaneh, appointed by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to battle corruption, said officers from the police and General Intelligence Service ransacked and vandalized his home and removed equipment and personal items.
“Abbas and his aides want to punish me because I went to the media and exposed how they have been stealing millions of dollars of international aid,” Shabaneh told the Jerusalem Post. “Instead of punishing the corrupt guys, many of whom are sitting around Abbas, they are punishing me by confiscating the only house I own.”
