The Taliban warn that to investigate complaints of human rights violations they have to be “recognized”

The Vice Minister of Information and Culture of Afghanistan, Zabihulá Mujahid, has warned this Monday that for the established Taliban authorities to investigate the complaints about alleged violations of Human Rights they must be “recognized” by the international community, before stating that, if this happens, the insurgents will pave the way to initiate an investigation in this regard.

“Until we are recognized, this is a unilateral approach”, explained Mujahid, who has considered that “it is good” that the international community “treats responsibly” and “recognizes” the Taliban government “as a responsible administration.”

“After that, they can legally share any concerns they have with us and we will address them,” he added, according to Tolo TV.

The international community has expressed concern about alleged human rights violations in Afghanistan, after the Taliban regained power.

Meanwhile, the Independent Commission for Human Rights of Afghanistan (CIDHA) officially announced on Sunday the suspension of its activities due to the impossibility of carrying them out.

At the same time, he denounced the “continuous contempt for Human Rights” by the insurgents and cited as examples the attacks on Human Rights defenders and “flagrant violations of International Humanitarian Law.”

In particular, they mentioned the “restrictions” imposed by the Taliban on women’s work activities and their participation in public life.
