UN rapporteurs call on Afghanistan to take action against the increase in the number of murders of human rights defenders

United Nations experts on Friday asked Afghanistan to take “decisive” action to take action in the face of the mounting killings of human rights defenders in the country.

“The murder of a human rights activist is a tragedy for society: the death of nine people since the beginning of the year shows the emergence of a really alarming trend,” said the special rapporteur on the situation of human rights activities. Mary Lawlor.

With these numbers and in August, the number registered for the entire last year has already been exceeded. It is for this reason that the United Nations rapporteurs have highlighted that “impunity” leads to these types of crimes being committed and, in addition, that these people are also “not recognized”.
