Afghanistan: Joint call for an immediate end to attacks against human rights defenders and need for protection and accountability

Index Number: ASA 11/4146/2021

Amnesty International, along with other human rights organisations, calls the Government of Afghanistan to end the threats, harassment, intimidation and attacks against human rights defenders, activists, journalists and media workers in the country. The Government of Afghanistan and international stakeholders and facilitators in the ongoing peace process, must take responsibility through their conduct and engagement in the country to stop the increase in violent attacks against human rights defenders. These organisations, in a joint letter, collectively call for an effective protection mechanism for human rights defenders in Afghanistan.
