The European Union has asked the Taliban to immediately release Zholia Parsi and Neda Parwani, women’s rights activists, along with their family members.
Nabila Massrali, the spokesperson for the European Union’s foreign relations, wrote on X social network last night October 2 that the European Union wants the Taliban to stop arbitrary arrests.
This union also demanded the release of Matiullah Wesa, an activist for girls’ education, who has been in prison for six months.
On the other hand, Thomas Nicholson, the EU’s special envoy for Afghanistan, said that arbitrary arrests of Afghans who defend their rights and others are illegal.
He added that these arrests “undermine the trust necessary to establish internal legitimacy and constructive dialogue”.
The Taliban arrested Neda Parwani along with her child and her husband on September 19 and Zholia Parsi on September 27 from Kabul city.
The Taliban haven’t said anything about the arrest of these women’s rights activists.
