Evidence-Based Claims Are Being Seriously Examined


10th June 2019

Kabul, Afghanistan

 The leadership of the Attorney General’s Office (AGO) of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is fully committed to addressing all cases that rely on documents and evidence and that will lead to the prosecution of offenders, violators, and ensuring justice and peace in the community.

 As the public is well being aware, recently some charges have been made by individuals against some individuals and institutions through the media and social networks.

 Claiming such allegations, without presenting documents and false rumors, would not only solve the problem but would also cause confusing public opinion.

 The AGO wants all those who raise such claims to provide evidence for proving their claim in the presence of the media, civil society organizations (CSOs) and advocates. The Office based on Article 134 of “Afghanistan Constitution” which is crime investigation and filing the lawsuit against the accused in courts, will examine the allegation decisively.

 Spreading of baseless gossip rumors that violate the rights of individuals and institutions and disrupt the order of society, according to the Provisions of Law of Afghanistan, it is a crime. The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) pledges that, with the utmost integrity and impartiality, which is the core principle of the AGO, the documents and evidence that reach to the office will be carefully reviewed and the results will be shared with the public.

 The AGO of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, with its serious and independent performances over the past few years, has shown to be a protector of the rights and freedoms of citizens and hears all cases in the light of the Provisions of the Law in an equal, fair and precise manner.
