KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Ministry of Justice on Saturday warned civil societyinfo-icon organizations of revoking their licenses and referring them to judiciary if they indulged in politics.

A statement from the Justice Ministry said under Article five, clause two of the social law, no civil society organization has the right to act politically.

“Social organizations can not involve themselves in political activities or make any political issue as part of their principles,” the statement said.

It warned if a social organization acted against the law, or its office was found not situated in a specific place or lacked administrative structure, its license would be revoked.

In addition, if an organization was found involved in politics, the MoJ would cancel its licenses and refer them to the judiciary for legal action.
