  1. The Afghan VP is right in saying that the justice is not done to punish criminals and murderers properly in order to stop people committing crimes in the country .

  2. It’s high time that the Afghan judiciary shook itself up. Its questionable attitude is giving wrong signals to the world community.

  3. If he criticized the judiciary in a private chat, there shouldn’t be a problem. I think he should be answerable only if he says something publicly.
