Abolitioning of the Human Rights Commission Massive Setback, says UN Rapporteur

Richard Bennett has called the Taliban's move to dissolve the Human Rights Commission as a massive setback.

(Hasht e Subh) In response to the dissolution of the Human Rights Commission by the Taliban, the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Afghanistan has called the move a massive setback.

The UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Afghanistan, Richard Bennett, said on Thursday that there is a need for an institution to monitor the human rights situation in Afghanistan.

“An independent internal mechanism for monitoring and promoting human rights and receiving complaints is critical for human rights protection in Afghanistan,” he tweeted.
He is currently in Afghanistan. Bennett states that he will talk with Taliban officials regarding this issue.

The dissolution of the Human Rights Commission, along with five other leading institutions, including the National Security Council and parliament, has provoked with widespread public outcry.

Since Taliban has regained power, the group has been fighting against any value and achievements related to human rights. With the closure the AIHRC, the group proves it.
