Fate of Two Turkish Nationals Unknown
The fate of two teachers – both Turkish nationals – of the Afghan-Turk school in Kabul who were detained by the National Directorate of Security (NDS) last week, remains unknown.
Sources say the government has confiscated the passports of family members of the two teachers.
Meanwhile, the Attorney General Office (AGO) said three teachers of Afghan-Turk schools, two Turks and one Afghan national, were freed on Sunday.
Earlier the Turkish government had urged Afghanistan to hand over the teachers, but the AGO said the two Turks and one Afghan national who were freed are not on Turkish government’s list.
“An order has been issued to free them and make arrangements for their safe and secure release,” AGO spokesman Jamshed Rasuli said.
Parents of Afghan-Turk students have meanwhile asked the Afghan government to make clear for what allegations the teachers were detained and also to respond to questions on why the security forces raided on an Afghan-Turk school in Kabul.
“We want the government to investigate NDS’s raid on an Afghan-Turk female school in Kabul,” Sediqullah Tawhidi, a member of Afghan-Turk students’ parents' committee, said.
The AGO said they are investigating the NDS raid on the Afghan-Turk school in Kabul. “The raid of the forces is under investigations to figure out if their actions were in line with the law or not,” Rasuli added.
