Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission is highly concerned regarding the continuation of increased human rights violations in the country, said Dr. Sima Samar, the Chief of IHRC addressing a conference on International Day of Human Rights in Kabul.

She further urged all parts of the conflicts or the warring parties to consider human rights laws and care about the lives of civilian during the conflicts.

“The level of civilian casualties have been increased unfortunately during the past year, either by the armed opposition groups or by Afghan national force and their international partners,” she added about civilian casualties.

The United Nations is also seeking an end to the humanitarian crimes and prosecution of human rights violators. It further insists on more efforts to be done by the Afghan government.

“I praise Afghan government of volunteer commitments to the member nations of Human Rights Council. The UN is looking for the implementation of these commitments in order to have the human rights full filled and the protection process promoted,” Said Tadamichi Yamamoto, the UN Special Representative in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, Wais Ahmad Barmak, the Minister of Interior, acknowledges that the capacity of Afghan police forces is lower for providing justice and noted that the police forces are sometimes involved in violation of laws and regulation in some cases.

He promised to bring more reforms within the Ministry of Interior and among the ranks of Afghan police forces.
