Afghan Lawmakers on Sunday condemned President Karzai's lack of support for the publication of a major human rights report, with one senator calling it "treason."
The 800-page report is the most extensive documentation of human rights violations in Afghanistan, covering the period from before the 1978 Soviet invasion until the ouster of the Taliban in late 2001. The report implicates most key Afghan power-brokers in the current government as well as insurgent leaders fighting the government for serious human rights abuses.
