The political representation of UN in Afghanistan recently released a report about wide spread systematic torture of political prisoners in Afghanistan which was promptly rejected by the Interior Ministry of Karzai administration however the findings of
this same UN report were confirmed by the supporters of the stooge regime who testified to systematic torture being rife in prisons. As the report only documents torture of political prisoners therefore the Islamic Emirate states that it has reliable information that unparalleled torture is ongoing inside the prisons of intelligence agencies. Similarly, all impartial organizations must also carry out probes into hidden personal torture cells littered across the country. Prisoners are kept for prolonged periods in these secret personal cells and sometimes these same persons are martyred, the bodies of whom later discovered by locals in deserts and returned to their loved ones.
Secrets cells are built by local puppet forces inside the district centers of several districts, prisoners are brought there without warrants and severely tortured. An example is the personal prison built in Kandahar province’s Boldak district in which many of our countrymen are being held and tortured. Many innocent people are kept for prolonged periods in horrendous conditions inside its basement from which many have disappeared only to be later found martyred and mutilated in the desert close to the shrine of Ibraheem Khelo Khalifa Baba to the south of Kandahar city. The Islamic Emirate calls on all free organizations to fulfill their duties in preventing such tragedies.
