Following the killings of two female judges, who were travelling to their place of work when they were shot dead in an early morning ambush on 17 January 2021, BHRC and the Bar Council have written a joint letter to H.E. Afghanistan Chief Justice to express solidarity with members of the judiciary and wider legal profession in Afghanistan.
The right of citizens to have their cases heard by an independent judiciary able to carry out their duties free from interference, intimidation or attack is a universally recognised principle enshrined in national and international law – which underpins the rule of law itself. Letter to H.E. Afghanistan Chief Justice, January 2021
BHRC and the Bar Council applaud the efforts in facilitating the administration of justice and maintaining the rule of law and express their deepest condolences.
