Amnesty International called on the International Criminal Court (ICC) to prioritize and accelerate the delivery of justice for victims of crimes committed by the Taliban, as well as by other actors in Afghanistan.
In part of the declaration of Amnesty International, it stated that the delivery of justice for the victims of war crimes should be accelerated.
The statement said: “The International Criminal Court (ICC) must prioritize and accelerate the delivery of justice for victims of crimes committed by the Taliban, as well as by other actors in Afghanistan before the 2021 takeover."
"We demand that the International Criminal Court should prioritize the issue of dealing with war crimes in Afghanistan and provide information regarding the investigation that they started a year ago, where this investigation has reached," said Zaman Sultani, South Asia researcher of Amnesty International.
The Islamic Emirate has also asked the ICC to investigate the war crimes of other countries committed in Afghanistan.
"The crimes committed by the occupying countries in Afghanistan are the responsibility of the powerful countries. This international organization cannot hold them accountable, so we have no hope from this organization, but if it is seen that they are neutral, we will speak about it," Zabihullah Mujahid said.
Military analysts have different views about the demand of Amnesty International.
"If the court wants to cover all these crimes and bring the perpetrators to court, they should start from the United States, but unfortunately, America is a country that does not hand over its own person to a foreign and international court," said Salim Paigir, a military and political analyst.
Earlier, the Guardian newspaper reported on the war crimes of British soldiers in Afghanistan and said that at least 80 Afghan citizens were killed during the mission of British special forces in Helmand between 2010 and 2013, and only one British soldier killed 35 Afghan citizens during his six-month stay in Helmand.
