Rina Amiri Calls the Detention of Female Protestors in Kabul ‘Unjust’

Kabul – The US special representative for Afghan women Rina Amiri has condemned the detention of female protesters in Kabul and described it as unfair.

“If Kabul were to seek popular and global legitimacy, it must respect human rights, especially women’s rights,” Rina Amiri, the US State Department’s envoy for Afghan women, said today (Friday, February 4).

“These unjust detentions must be stopped,” she said.

Moreover, she said that the detained women protesters should be released immediately.

It is worth mentioning that at least two other protesters, Mursal Ayar and Zahra Mohammadi, were arrested overnight, while about two weeks have passed since the arrest of Tamana Zaryab and Parwana Ibrahimkhel, and their fate is still in a state of ambiguity.
