Eshchi Wants Prosecution Of Main Suspect

Ahmad Eshchi, former deputy head of National Islamic Movement of Afghanistan, who claims to have been sexually abused by the First Vice President Abdul Rashid Dostum and his bodyguards, maintains he wants the prosecution of the main suspect.
 
While welcoming the recent questioning of seven of Dostum’s guards, Eshchi urged the government to ensure that justice is served in his case.
 
“I will not be convinced unless Dostum himself appears for questioning and unless his guards under his command, are prosecuted,” he said.
 
Meanwhile, the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) spokesman Jamshed Rasuli said two guards of Dostum have still not appeared at the office to be questioned for the case.
 
The AGO recently issued the arrest warrant for nine of Dostum’s guards.
 
“Last week seven of the men who were accused in Eshchi matter, appeared for questioning. Investigations are ongoing on the issue,” he said.
 
“The prosecutor of the case believes that the men should be investigated and they are free now,” he added.
 
“In such cases, a crime is being investigated and the law does not allow a prosecutor or attorney to release suspects without any valuable warrant,” said Abdul Wahid Farzaee, member of Afghanistan Lawyers Union.
 
Dostum’s house was under siege by security forces for two days. However, he denied the siege on his house.
