UN's Bennett to Complete Afghan Human Rights Report by September

The UN Rapporteur for Afghanistan's human rights situation, Richard Bennett, said his report on the country's human rights situation will be completed by September.  

Bennett was interviewed by TOLOnews’ Hamid Bahraam, Bennett said.

“I will be more specific about this when I make my official report. At this stage, I am going to say that I agree with those who feel that statements and words are not enough and there needs to be some action and some accountability for continued violations of human rights and women's rights,” Bennett said.  

The Rapporteur earlier paid an 11-day visit to Afghanistan to assess the human rights situation in the country.  

He said that there are political and social consequences for sidelining women in Afghanistan.  

“It is an issue about rights and about the participation of women fully in the society. So there are social consequences and political consequences to decide to sideline women in Afghanistan, as there would be in any country,” Bennett said.
