AI has stressed that no one should face reprisals for peacefully exercising their right to freedom of expression.

This comes as Afghanistan Green Trend (AGT), a social and youth empowerment organization, which is led by Amrullah Saleh, the former Directorate General of National Directorate of Security (NDS) and the first running mate to President Ashraf Ghani, has referred at least 40 social media users to the Attorney General for “using insulting and abusive language” against Saleh.

According to the Green Trend, some of those sued are government servants who work in the Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Interior, Ministry of Economy and Ministry of Higher Education.
