The UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) is deeply concerned by reports of human rights breaches in the nation. During a meeting with Taliban officials at Afghanistan's Ministry of Interior Affairs, UNAMA Human Rights stated that similar cases in Afghanistan require investigations, transparency, and accountability.
"Today in @moiafghanistan, UNAMA Human Rights met with Taliban officials. Ex-ANSF/Govt members, civsoc, media, judiciary, religious clerics, and women activists were all discussed as potential human rights violators.
In Afghanistan, several journalists, government officials, religious clergy, and women activists have been killed. According to a report by the Afghanistan non-profit Nai, at least 30 journalists and media workers were slain, manhandled, and injured in Afghanistan from the beginning of 2021 to July 2021, with many of them also being threatened by government officials. A religious professor was slain in Afghanistan's western Farah province last December.
Four women activists were killed in the Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif in the northern Balkh region in November. Since the Taliban assumed control of Afghanistan after the government fell in August, there have been a number of violent events against women.
