Families of war crime victims seek justice
Nearly 80 relatives showcased belongings of the victims at a two-day exhibition that concluded in Kabul today. The belongings include clothes, books, cards and other things.
Speaking to reporters, several families said the government should bring to justice war criminals and provide jobs to relatives of the victims.
Afghanai, hailing from the Kalkan district of Kabul province, said her husband was detained by intelligence operatives during the communist regime and then he was moved to the Pul-i-Charkhi prison's second block, where he spent a year.
She added her husband then suddenly disappeared from the notorious jail and was yet to be traced. At that time, she said, her son was 18 months old and her daughter 40 days old.
Without naming anyone, she alleged war criminals were still holding key government posts and that they should be removed and tried in court of law.
