Dozens of former judges held a demonstration in the capital Kabul to criticize what they called an “uncertain fate” and the government’s negligence toward them.
The protestors said that at least 2500 judges who were working for courts in the time of the former government are currently have no definite status and have not been paid for the past six months.
“Since the Islamic Emirate came to power and established the government, the status of the Afghan judges has become uncertain. I meant, it has been over six months that the judges have been struggling with severe problems,” said Abdul Qayoum Haleem, a former judge.
They called on the current Afghan authorities to consider their situation. The protestors complained that they are struggling with poverty.
The protestors released a resolution.
The protestors said that if the government does not pay attention to the problems of the academic figures, they will be forced to flee the country.
However, the demonstration has been disturbed by the forces of the Islamic Emirate.
This comes as dozens of employees of the Ministry of Public Works also held protests n Kabul on Wednesday, where they criticized the government for not paying their salaries.
“The officials of the Ministry of Public Works should pay the salaries of 400 engineers,” said a protestor.
