KABUL (PAN): The Afghanistan’s Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) on Sunday voiced its deep concern over plummeting people's access to justice and law enforcement agencies, claiming 45 percent decline in the access ratio last year.

AIHRC chief Mohammad Musa Mahmoudi told a press conference in Kabul that the commission had completed its report on the human rights situation in the country  and the findings were being delivered to the authorities concerned.

He said their investigations included interviews with jail inmates about their access to defence lawyers, besides gathering information about the activities of courts and prosecutor's offices and illegal armed groups.

AIHRC commissioners visited detention centres, women shelters and held interviews with war victims, inmates, eye witnesses and government officials over the past six months across the country, he said.
