As per the CNN report, the former female Afghan prosecutors have been self-detained for the fear of reprisal from those who were once jailed after their judgments and have now been released.

Thousands of prisoners have been freed throughout Afghanistan by the Taliban after they took over the country.

They claim that the ex-prisoners have been searching for them for revenge and one of the female judges has said that she has repeatedly been called by unknown numbers after the Taliban takeover.
In the meantime, tens of female judges who managed to flee the country are now abroad but hundreds are hidden.

Female prosecutors usually dealt with the cases of women’s rights violation, women’s torture, rapes, murder, and family harassment.

Along with other female employees in Afghanistan, female prosecutors have also been at their homes and have been told not to go to their jobs.
