The execution of two individuals in Ghazni prompts global reactions

AT News

Kabul: The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) on X said that the United Nations is against executions.

UNAMA said on X: “Two people were publicly executed today by Afghanistan’s de facto authorities in Ghazni province. The UN is strongly opposed to the death penalty. It is inconsistent with the fundamental right to life.”

The UN Secretary General’s spokesperson, Stephane Dujarric, said: “We firmly continue to stand against the use of the death penalty and I think the public nature of these executions is particularly heinous.”

Meanwhile, in a statement, Amnesty International asked the caretaker government to stop all kinds of executions in the country, stating that the executions by the Afghan rulers are an insult to human dignity and contradict all international laws.

The two people accused of murder were executed in Ghazni province on Thursday after the approval of the Afghan caretaker leadership and the ruling of three courts.
