President Ashraf Ghani on Monday said any interference in judicial institutions will be considered as a crime and all should obey the law.
Addressing the 4th National Conference of Prosecutors at the Presidential Palace, Ghani said: “I believe in independence of the judicial institutions and will not allow anyone to interfere in their activity.”
H added: “If you [prosecutors] see any violation of law by me or any other person, act against it according to the law.”
He said the prosecutors are non-political and the political disagreements should not affect the activity of the Attorney General’s Office (AGO).
Ghani stated that the AGO still has issues in having professional staff. However he said women’s share at the AGO has increased compared with the past.
He vowed the prosecutors to increase their salaries in the near future.
Ghani urged the people to visit government’s courts in order to ensure justice if they face any judicial problem.
He continued to say that the country’s young generation should move forward strongly and government will be with them.
Meanwhile, the Attorney General Farid Hamidi said the persecutors continue to implement the law and the law will be implemented equally.
He added that access of women and children to justice is their top priority.
