Abdul Shakoor Dadras, a member of the review panel quoted by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RFL) said, they have not receieved any document or evidence which shows the connection of the 88 prisoners in attacks against the Afghan and coalition forces.

This comes as Afghan president Hamid Karzai following his meeting with the US senators on Thursday, ordered to review the cases of 88 prisoners, who are believed to be involved in major attacks against the Afghan and US forces.

President Karzai quoted in a statement released by presidential palace media office told US senators that the innocent prisoners must be released and the criminals should be tried based on the laws of Afghanistan.

US senator Lindsey Graham following his meeting with president Hamid Karzai, told repoters that the release of the dangerous prisoners will have a negative impact on the future relationshipment between the American people and Afghan government.

“The 88, to me, represent a defining moment in our relationship,” Graham quoted by AFP said, adding that the jailed men were responsible for over 60 NATO coalition and 57 Afghan deaths.
