Ex-Minister Shares Evidence of Taliban ‘War Crimes’ with ICC

Former Minister of Justice, Fazal Ahmad Manawi, has shared what he had previously described as “evidence of war crimes, violation of human rights, and genocide by the Taliban” with the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague.

Manawi said in a tweet he posted on Tuesday, November 22, that the ICC has pledged to him that “the criminals will be brought to justice”.

The anti-Taliban advocate has said that he has “successfully” accomplished his mission.

“We finally handed over the documents and evidence to the court and held necessary talks with the high decision-making level [leadership of the court],” he said about his visit, assuring that the results will come out soon.

At the beginning of this month, Manawi announced that he would hold talks with human rights organizations and some top European politicians.

The Taliban are accused of widely violating human rights and committing war crimes, particularly in Panjshir against fighters of the National Resistance Front (NRF).

The group, however, denies these accusations of human rights violations terming reports on the situation of human rights as baseless.
