Outspoken Afghan Rights Official Ousted

New York Times, 23 December 2011
‘Mr. Karzai and his closest aides have forced out AIHRC commissioner Nader Nadery of the Afghan indepedent human rights commission, according to Afghan rights activists and Western officials. The final straw for the Karzai administration appeared to be a report that he has championed, which exhaustively details atrocities committed here over three decades of war and which Nadery has called his ‘most important work’. This is a clear slap into the face of Afghans who do not want past atrocities forgotten and of the international community to which Karzai just had given assurances, amongst other about an increased role of civil society, at the Bonn 2 conference.
