History and Biodata

Taliban authorities have said they have dissolved Afghanistan's independent human rights commission AIHRC as it was "not considered necessary".

The work of the rights commission, which included documenting civilian casualties of Afghanistan's two-decade war, was halted when the Taliban ousted a US-backed government last year and the body's top officials fled the country.

The Human Rights Commission, the National Security Council, the Commission for the Supervision of the Implementation of the Constitution, the Secretariat of the Senate, and the Housw of Representatives of the High Council for Reconciliation are among the institutions that have been dissolved.

According to the deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, these institutions have not been active in the last eight months.

“Departments that are not carrying out their activities currently are inactive. At any time, if it is needed, they will be reactivated. ” said Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate. (20220517)
