Nangarhar district judges, attorneys sit in Jalalabad

Nangarhar district judges, attorneys sit in Jalalabad

Nov 27, 2017 - 20:04

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): District attorneys and justice officials have been performing their duty in the provincial capital, Jalalabad, of eastern Nangarhar province, the provincial appellant court chief said on Monday.

Abdul Wali Qazizada told a two-day conference in connection with the Attorney General Office’s five-year strategic plan here that the district attorneys and justice officials performed duty in Jalalabad because they lacked detention rooms in districts.

He said attorneys and judges continued to face threats which created hurdles in their work.

He said detention facilities were not available in districts and that was why justice and judicial affairs in districts could not progress.

“We don’t have detention rooms in 21 districts. When a legal issue arise in a district, attorneys and judge from the district move to Jalalabad and address the issue, which itself is a big problem.”

Nangarhar governor Mohammad Gulab Mangal also admitted there were either no or limited judicial activities in districts due to certain problems.

However, he assured of making efforts to resolve issues in districts.

Justice and judicial officials from the four eastern provinces and civil society activists took part on day one of the two-day event.

Nangarhar attorney Raees Khalid Ahmad Orya told reporters on the sidelines of the gathering that the event would continue for two days.

He said the day one was dedicated to officials from justice, judicial and other organs and the second two to civil society activists to express their opinions.

He said suggestions about loopholes in the outgoing five-year strategic plan would be collected and incorporated in the upcoming plan.
