The Chairman of the Senate, meanwhile, stressed on execution of Anas Haqqani – son of Jalaluddin Haqqani, the founder of Pakistan-based Haqqani Network that responsible for some deadly attacks in Afghanistan.

“We want execution of all prisoners of the Taliban including Anas Haqqani,” said Chairman of  the Senate House Fazl Hadi Muslimyar.  “The three courts order are against him [Anas] and he should be executed in order to stop the crimes.”   

Anas was being held by the Afghan government in 2014 and a court reportedly sentenced him to death last year.
