More than 2,000 prisoners to be released for Eid al-Fitr, Supreme Court

KABUL: Based on the Decree of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Emirate Shaikh Mullah Hibatullah Akhundza da, more than 2,000 prisoners will be released from the country’s prisons on the occasion of Eid al-Fitr, the Supreme Court said in a statement the other day. In the first round, 406 prisoners including 40 women and 28 children were released on Saturday from Pul-e-Charkhi prison in Kabul, the statement said, adding that the prison is not a place of punishment and it has turned into a reform center. The officials of the Supreme Court consider publishing reports of mistreatment, beatings, and torture in prisons as propaganda and the work of intelligence circles. The detainees who were released from Pul-e-Charkhi prison were involved in various crimes, the statement added. Meanwhile, a number of newly released prisoners say that they had access to health and recreational services in prison and that they were not tortured in prison. The Kabul Times
