Why are lawyers in Afghanistan in danger?
To mark the Day of the Endangered Lawyer 2023, we held a joint seminar with Lawyers for Lawyers on 19 January, focusing on the situation in Afghanistan.
Our panellists discuss how the regime has impacted the rule of law, as well as giving rise to threats faced by lawyers and judges.
- Marzia Babakarkhail, judge
- Rafi Nadiri, lawyer and representative of the Afghan Independent Bar Association
