The UN special rapporteur for Afghanistan, Richard Bennett, criticized the lack of accountability for crimes against humanity in Afghanistan.
Richard Bennett in a conference for “Accountability for Crimes Committed in Afghanistan” said that Afghanistan has been experiencing impunity of war crimes for decades, the crimes against humanity, and violations of human rights and international humanitarian law.
But the Islamic Emirate said that the United States and its allies are perpetrators of war crimes in Afghanistan.
This conference of the United Nations on "Accountability for Crimes Committed in Afghanistan" was held on Friday.
The UN special rapporteur for Afghanistan, Richard Bennett: “I really like to stress the importance of this event, as accountability is the bedrock of the human rights system and Afghanistan has been experiencing impunity for decades ... for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and violations of human rights or international humanitarian law.”
Anna Myriam Roccatello, the Deputy Executive Director and Director of Programs of the International Centre for Transitional Justice (ICTJ), said: “Member states should consider particularly those that are involved in the various phases of the conflict in Afghanistan to open cases for their own citizens.”
The representative of Norway in this conference emphasized the global support for women in Afghanistan and added that women should attend the meetings about Afghanistan.
Andreas Løvold, Ambassador and Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations, said: “we have to create a kind of a joint platform with Afghan women and bring them to the table where its possible ... and there is an opportunity for them to speak. We should as member states do whatever we can in providing that platform because its not only about talking and discussing about the current situation, it's about the future of their country.”
But the Islamic Emirate said that the United States and its allies are the perpetrators of war crimes in Afghanistan.
"If there was a crime or violation of human rights during the 20 years of American occupation, they themselves were the main perpetrators of the crimes. If it is calculated, They must be calculated," Zabihullah Mujahid said.
Amnesty International had previously called for an investigation of war crimes in Afghanistan before 2021.
This organization asked the International Criminal Court to review the cases of war crimes committed by the Taliban and other countries in Afghanistan.
