Govt asked to set up special court for criminals
KABUL (PAN): The National Directorate of Security (NDS), the country's spy service, on Sunday asked the justice and judiciary organs to establish a special court for war criminals and others involved in security-related incidents.
"The NDS has no complaint against the justice and judiciary organs, but there are problems with some laws which sometimes lead to the release of criminals," the intelligence spokesman, Lutfullah Mashal, told a press conference.
About 2,200 inmates are being held at the notorious Pul-i-Charkhi jail, but cases of inmates have been delayed due to problems in the laws, he said.
He said criminal cases about which the NSD had evidences should not be postponed.
"If a special court is set up in this regard, the issue will be resolved and criminals will receive punishment quickly," Mashal said.
He also said that two suspects had been arrested in connection with attack on the Parwan Governor's House.
"These two named Maulvi Noorullah and Hasibullah, who are residents of Parwan are responsible for terrorist attacks over the past several years in their respective provinces," he said.
On August 14, 22 people were killed in a suicide attack on the governor's house in Charikar, the capital of central Parwan province.
