JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Nangarhar’s Appellate Court announced sentencing three thieves to 15 years in jail as a result of an open trial.

Judge Abdul Wali Qazizada handed down the verdict after hearing arguments from both sides. Each of the three robbers were ordered jail for 15 years under the Article 451 of the Penal Code.

The jury said the convicts had robbed a moneychanger of 1.5million Saudi riyals on the Torkham-Jalalabad highway. The decision could bed appealed in a higher court.

On the other hand, Integrity Watch Afghanistan (IWA) head for Nangarhar, Dr. Hanif Hashimi, praised the appellate court’s recent judgments.
