Three people have allegedly been publicly flogged by the City Court in southern Afghanistan, Kandahar province, for the crimes of adultery and theft, according to local Taliban officials in Kandahar province.

The three alleged offenders’ sentences were carried out, according to the authorities, on Thursday, the 30th of June, in Kandahar, in the presence of Mawlawi Mohibullah, a member of the Taliban’s judicial system, and other court members.

Each of the perpetrators allegedly received 39 floggings, according to the Taliban officials.

An Afghan legal analyst believes that as the Taliban reforms the Afghanistan’s justice system under its rigid interpretation of Islamic law, a return to lurid and brutal public executions and floggings is unavoidable.

The Taliban have already whipped the accused for “crimes against God” in certain districts across Afghanistan.

The Taliban’s local authorities previously lashed a young man in Ghor province, in central Afghanistan, for harassing a 29-year-old girl.

Human rights organizations and the general public have repeatedly accused the Taliban of carrying harsh and unjust punishments in the field courts.
