Based on the initial findings, the provincial council member had been arrested at the behest of provincial governor other than legal and judicial institutions, which is brazen violation of the law. As a representative of the central government, the provincial governor, instead of ensuring justice, had taken an individual hostage from the airport in a broad day light in the presence of security forces because of political differences.
While the incident has become somehow clear, the government has not yet taken any actions against Noor, and even has not suspended him. If the case is remitted to legal and judicial organs when Noor is still the provincial governor, it is not rational to expect justice will be delivered because if he can detain a provincial council member without the authorization of legal and judicial institutions in the presence of security forces, he can also influence the decisions of judicial institutions using his power, and can even challenge the law as in this incident.
In the majority of such incidents in Afghanistan, justice is sacrificed for political deals. In lieu of consolidating the rule of law through law enforcement on violators, preference is given to political compromise, thereby emboldening law-breakers to continue to commit more violations. If the Dostum-Ishchi case had been adjudicated through legal channels, no one would have dared to commit such crimes in the future.
