President Hamid Karzai: We call on you not to sign the new Law on Criminal Procedures

President Hamid Karzai: We call on you not to sign the new Law on Criminal Procedures
  
  

 

Why this is important to me

The law would prohibit the justice system to question relatives of criminal defendants. It will deprive Afghan women and girls access to justice against relatives who commit domestic violence, forced them to marry or even sell them. Only the President can stop this law that has already been passed by the Parliament from being enforced.
