Afghanistan’s intelligence agency has released four teachers of Afghan-Turk School including three Turkish and one Afghan national in Kabul, officials confirmed on Sunday.
Jamshid Rasooli, the Spokesman of the Attorney General’s Office said that the teachers of Afghan-Turk schools were released after being held in custody by the intelligence operatives.
The Attorney General’s Office, however, did not elaborate on the reasons behind detention of the teachers, but stressed that the released individuals will be under “serious” supervision of the security forces.
Officials at Afghan-Turk Schools, meanwhile, welcomed the intelligence agency’s decision to release the teachers of the school.
“Three of the detained teachers were released and we are hoping that the other teachers should also get released soon,” said Ahmad Fawad Haidari, Deputy Director of the Afghan-Turk Schools in Kabul.
However, Fazal Ahmad Manawi, a member of the school’s parents committee said that the government wants to hand over the teachers to Turkey.
This comes as, earlier, it was said that the Afghan leadership has signed no extradition agreement with Turkish government to hand over the individuals.
