Key defendants in the Kabul Bank corruption case have rejected the appellate court's ruling against them and have called for a superior court to step in, the Attorney General's office said on Tuesday.

Officials said the only individuals who have appeared to settle their debt to the bank include Hussain Fahim, Mahmoud Karzai and Ghafar Dawi. All assets of the defendants will remain frozen until they payback the money they took.

The appellate court's ruling, which increased the prison terms of a number of defendants and demanded the freezing of all assets until all the money stolen is recuperated, was expected to be implemented by the Attorney General's office. However, the government's top lawyer has indicated the case might be sent back to court. According to the Attorney General's office, Afghan law requires that three courts must issue verdicts on the case.
