Detained Former Military Officer Released

AT News

KABUL: A former military officer who was detained by the forces of the Islamic Emirate has been released.

Earlier, Javad Jafari, who worked as a military officer in the former government, was detained by the Islamic Emirate.

Jafari said that he was in detention for at least five days, without being guilty.

I was detained by the Islamic Emirate for five days. The misunderstanding they had was resolved,” Jafari said.  

A spokesman for the Islamic Emirate said they will probe the issue.

“We will investigate. Who is he and where he was arrested—and this is a wrong allegation that he was arrested because he was a former member of the (security forces),” Islamic Emirate’s Spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said.  

Jafari called on the Islamic Emirate’s forces to respect the general amnesty announced by their supreme leader, Mullah Hibatullah Akhundzada.

With the Islamic Emirate swept into power, the former military troops comprised of 350,000 Afghan National Defense and Security Forces collapsed.

However, the Islamic Emirate’s officials have repeatedly denied the arbitrary detention of the former ANDSF, the Human Rights Watch and UN reports cited that scores of former ANDSF have gone missing or killed since the fall of the western-backed government of President Ashraf Ghani.
