Condemning the release of Taliban detainees, the Transitional Justice Coordination Group (TJCG) accused the National Unity Government (NUG) of following the same policies which the previous government followed regarding prisoners' release.
The TJCG members also criticized the recent policy of the United States towards the Taliban's leader and other members in Afghanistan.
The United States has said that after January 2, its forces in Afghanistan will not target Taliban's leader Mullah Omar and other members unless they posed a direct threat to the US.
"If this policy of U.S. continues towards Taliban and those who have committed crimes, the civilian killings will likely increase in Afghanistan," TJCG member Muhammad Younus Akhtar warned.
The TJCG members also called on the international community to review the new U.S. policy towards Taliban.
"America must tell the people of Afghanistan that why did they fight the Taliban here when their past enemies have now become their friends," another member Ahmad Shah Stanekzai said.
Furthermore, the group members criticized the recent statements by the government calling the Taliban as political oppositions, after the former President Hamid Karzai called Taliban brothers.
"We want the government to differentiate between the friends and enemies of Afghanistan," Akhtar said. "The victims of Taliban attacks are not happy with this."
Calling 2014 the deadliest year for Afghan civilians, TJCG members expressed that the United States has disappointed the people of Afghanistan by releasing the Taliban members from Guantanamo Bay and excluding the group's name from its blacklist.
