The Supreme Court has appointed 69 judges to 33 provinces (Panjshir province was not included.)
The Islamic Emirate said that the appointees to the provinces are qualified to address legal cases.
“The 69 individuals are introduced by the Supreme Court and are appointed to positions of appellate court judges and provincial judges- they are all skillful and are experts in Sharia law,” said Inamullah Samangai, deputy spokesman for the Islamic Emirate.
But some political officials reacted to the new appointments in the judicial system, saying that the system needs well-experienced officials.
“It is necessary to appoint officials based on talent, skills, integrity and capability,” said Janat Fahim, a political analyst.
“These should be lawyers who are familiar with Afghan and international law,” said Toreq Farhadi, a political analyst.
Some lawyers said that the newly appointed officials should not have been accused of committing war crimes.
“The individuals who are being appointed in this section should not have any background of violating human rights or committing war crimes--they should be honest,” said Rohulah Sakhi Zada, a lawyer.
The citizens hoped that the new judges would take decisive action in judicial cases.
“Honest and good people should be appointed who can ensure justice,” said Khalil Rahman, a Kabul resident.
