Former Security Forces Member Detained by Islamic Emirate: Family

AT News

KABUL: A former member of the security forces has been detained by the Islamic Emirate, the family members claimed.

The officer is named Javad Jafari.

Jafari’s family said their residence was night raided by some individuals claiming to be member of the Islamic Emirate. The individuals didn’t have a court order and forcibly arrested Jafari and took him to an unknown location.

“They drew guns on us, they did not ask anyone, they just said ‘we are from the Islamic Emirate.’ They beat Javad and dragged him out of the house,” said Feriba, Javad’s wife.

Javad’s family and residents of Kabul called on the security forces to abide by the amnesty decree of the supreme leader of the Islamic Emirate.

“They were neither thieves nor kidnappers, no one but the Islamic Emirate,” said Ghulam Haidar, Javad’s brother.

The Islamic Emirate denied the detention of the Jafari, saying it has been trying to probe the issue.

“This person was not arrested by our police chief, we are trying to find out the truth,” said Khalid Zadran, spokesman of the Kabul Police Command.

Earlier, the Human Rights Watchdogs in a report expressed concern over the arbitrary detention and disappearance of former security forces. The report of the HRW followed with a joint statement of the world countries, calling on the Islamic Emirate to end the arbitrary detention of the former security forces.

Around 350,000 troops of former governments collapsed following the rapid fall of the western-backed government of President Ashraf Ghani.
