UN’s report on Afghan courts functioning baseless, Mujahid

KABUL: The Islamic Emirate has rejected as baseless the UN report on flogging of and the courts’ functioning in Afghanistan, the IEA spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said Tuesday. A day earlier, the United Nations Assistance Mission Afghanistan (UNAMA) in a report said that more than 270 men, 58 women and two boys had been publicly lashed over the last six months in Afghanistan, something the Islamic Emirate spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid called justice to have been implemented in light of the Islamic sharia. Spurning the UNAMA report as untrue, Mujahid said that the country’s judicial system had been strengthened after the resumption of power by the Islamic system. In his tweeter handle, Mujahid said: “With justice ensured for all, citizens had been given their rights in light of Islamic rules and that ignoring these developments and achievements is unfair.” “Afghans know that exemplary justice has come, as a result, the security of the entire country has been ensured and a transparent judicial system has been established and efforts are still being made to strengthen it,” the Islamic Emirate spokesman twitted. Also, the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has said the convicts had been punished on the basis of Islamic criminal law. “Each political system has its own standards and approaches,” said the ministry in a statement adding such punishments were needed to ensure a safe environment for the people.
