Dozens of inmates released from Kunduz jail

KUNDUZ CITYY (Pajhwok):  Sixty-three prisoners, including four womeninfo-icon, were released from a prison in northern Kunduz province on Wednesday, an official said.

The provincial court of appeals chief, Mohammad Arif Mubashir, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the former inmates were freed in compliance with a presidential decree on Mujahidin’s Victory Day.

He said the released prisoners had served most part of their jail terms and they had been convicted of different crimes.

He urged the released prisoners not to violate the Constitution in future to avoid being jailed again.

Hamid, one of the released prisoners, thanked the government and said he would never do anything wrong in his life.

Nazakmir, who spent 18 months in jail following a traffic accident, said jail authorities behaved harshly with inmates.

Sayed Mohammad, another young who had been in jail for more than one year in a drug smuggling case, was satisfied with the behavior of jail officials and happy over his release.

“I had some weapons at home and other people told about this to police thus the security forces came and took me to the lock up.”

Prison in charge Col. Mohammad Nasir said law had been enforced in the jail and all prisoners benefited from their rights.

Currently, 450 prisoners are languishing in Kunduz jail, including 14 women.
