History and Biodata

3. Biodata:
Nangahar is the only province in the easter Zone of Afghanistan that has a female prosecutor, Mrs. Shakiba Danish Shakeeba Danish, who holds a BA degree in law. There is no female judge or prosecutor in the zone. Shakiba initially worked as a volunteer, but the attorney general’s office later appointed her to the position. Now she is the only woman judicial official across the eastern zone. Shakiba could be assigned to probe women-related cases. Nangarhar attorney’s office is not the only organisation that has only one female worker; the court of appeals and other judicial institutions neither have female judges nor women employees.
