A career official allied with President Emomali Rahmon who served as governor of the Sughd Region and minister of agriculture, giving him control over one of the country’s main source of foreign currency: cotton. According to a 2008 U.S. diplomatic cable, Rohbar (formerly Qosimov) was “widely reputed to be a mafia kingpin.”

From 1998 onwards — covering most of his government career — it has been forbidden under Tajik law for civil servants to have foreign bank accounts.
