First Vice President Amrullah Saleh says President Ghani has ordered a public trial of the terrorists.

Saleh said on Tuesday during the 6:30 morning meeting, President has allowed public trials for those who are involved in terrorist activities.

Earlier, the first vice president had called on the country’s courts to hold public trials of perpetrators of terrorist acts; nationwide courts are called on to invite the families of victims of the terrorist attacks as witnesses during the trial.

President Ghani has responded to the demands of the people, and has issued a public court order for the terrorists, Saleh said.

Holding a public trial of members of terrorist groups who have committed terrorist crimes has been one of the basic demands of the citizens of the country in recent years.

The public has repeatedly called for a public trial by the Afghan judiciary through protest rallies, but such demands have always been opposed by a number of human rights groups.
