Fazal Ahmad Manawi, a prominent member of the resistance front and a former justice minister in Afghanistan’s previous administration, said he met former Afghan president Karzai in Berlin, the capital of Germany.
Former cabinet member, Manawi, stated in a tweet on Saturday, December 17, that he met with former Afghan president Hamid Karzai in Germany, and hailed his stance on girls’ education in Afghanistan.
“His attitude towards the education of girls, honoring the national hero and other personalities, trying to prevent oppression and violence, and achieving a people’s system … is commendable,” Manawi wrote on his Twitter handle, encapsulating his takeaway from meeting with former president Karzai.
The former Minister of Justice, earlier in late October, announced that he would travel to Europe to engage with human rights organizations and discuss issues such as genocide, war crimes, and human rights abuses in Afghanistan.
He also called those who had documents or other materials that may suggest or reveal war crimes and human rights violations in Afghanistan to send them to him so that he could share them with rights organizations.
The meeting came at a time, when the former Afghan leader, Karzai, traveled to the UAE and then Germany after over a year of travel ban since the political upheaval in Afghanistan.
