Amnesty International calls on the Taliban to prosecute perpetrators of human rights violations | outside

Callamard said: “The human rights situation in Afghanistan is rapidly deteriorating and brutal abuses by the Taliban continue every day.” “Recently, people who openly criticize Taliban rules have been arrested without cause. Meanwhile, the stifling repression of the rights of women and girls and targeted executions of members of the Hazara minority continue. The Taliban are clearly unwilling and unable to investigate the actions of their supporters flagrantly violating the rights of human beings for the Afghan people.”

Amnesty International is calling on the UN Human Rights Council to launch an independent investigative process in Afghanistan as soon as possible, in particular to gather evidence so that the perpetrators can be brought to justice.

Since the Taliban returned to power in August 2021, Amnesty International has documented the arrest of women’s rights activists, journalists and civilians in Panjshir state and the massacres of the Shia Hazara minority in three provinces. Amnesty said the detainees did not receive any legal aid and were denied contact with their families.
