The Consulate of the Taliban in Karachi, Pakistan, announced the release of 9 Afghan citizens, including a child, from jails in Sindh province. This announcement was made on Friday, July 5th, citing expired immigration cards as the reason for their initial detention.

According to reports, these individuals have been reunited with their families after their release from prison.

The consulate emphasized that despite possessing valid immigration cards, these individuals were detained by the police.

Meanwhile, the expulsion and detention of Afghan migrants from Iran and Pakistan continue despite human rights organizations’ reactions.

Earlier, the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriations had reported the release and return of 13 Afghan migrants from prisons in Pakistan.

It is noteworthy that “lack of residency documents” remains one of the primary reasons for the detention of Afghan migrants in Iran and Pakistan.

According to statistics from the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), approximately 595,000 Afghan migrants have returned from Iran and Pakistan from January to the end of May of the current calendar year.

Meanwhile, the situation regarding Afghan migrants in Iran and Pakistan remains contentious, with ongoing issues of detention and deportation despite international concerns about human rights.
