Afghan Women Judges Trapped in the Country Are Desperately Seeking Sanctuary

LEAVE A COMMENT

Afghan women resisting the Taliban’s repression, above. The essayist writes that although many women judges, like her, have escaped Afghanistan since the Taliban takeover of August 2021, 68 women judges still desperately need to get out. Yet disappointingly, she notes, a UN Women “safety net” fund for human-rights defenders was denied the judges because of a seeming technicality. SHAH SHAH/TWITTER

Thankfully, many women judges have escaped Afghanistan with the help of the International Association of Women Judges and other organizations and governments. Sixty-eight women judges still desperately need sanctuary.

I am deeply concerned for the safety of women who, like me, worked in the justice system in Afghanistan and remain in the region. They are among the brave women who sent the Taliban, terrorists and criminals to prison. Since the Taliban regained power and released thousands of prisoners, women who once delivered justice have been hunted by cruel men committed to seeking revenge. The Taliban stripped all women from judgeships in the country, stopped their salaries and froze their bank accounts.

Facing frequent death threats and constant fear of violent reprisals, the judges and their families often move from one hiding spot to another to evade attack. Some of the judges have children. They have nothing left — no income, no safety, no security, no support. Some can’t afford a passport application. Some have waited more than a year for processing of asylum documents. Some have made it only as far as neighboring Pakistan and face steep fines and other trouble for overstaying their visas while awaiting asylum elsewhere.

Perhaps no single country can take all the judges at once. But I won’t give up helping them leave until one by one they all get out. We are grateful to people like Dr. Elizabeth Biok, secretary-general of the International Commission of Jurists, in Australia. I helped keep lines of communication open between three judges and her group while they successfully got visas for Australia.

As I write this, from where I live in Manchester, England, there are 49 women judges in Afghanistan and 19 stuck in transit in Pakistan who urgently need help to survive and escape.

Let me share a surprising and disappointing response we received from a request to the UN Women’s Peace and Humanitarian Fund Safety Net, which provides financing for “individual women human rights defenders who face risks that threaten their safety or ability to sustain their work,” it says. The judges were turned down because the risks must be “due to the activism that they did outside of their work,” we were told.

The second annual national conference of the Afghan women judges association at the Supreme Court of Afghanistan in Kabul, 2013.

In their work, the judges fought for justice and helped women. Their activism was intrinsic. We humbly suggest reconsideration of the Safety Net policy to help the judges in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

When I was a family court judge in the 1990s in Afghanistan, there were 22 women jurists in the whole country. There were 10 times as many by the time the Taliban returned to power, after two decades, in August 2021.

Last September, one woman judge was killed and her body was put outside her brother’s house. All the judges were terrified and told me, “Don’t tell the media, don’t tell the media.” I kept silent, but then I said: “Why should keep I silent? This is a big deal. Silent for what?” I started sharing what happened and the judges agreed with me. It is so upsetting for all of them. I ask Allah to give me patience. Patience, patience, patience. Patience can help me to carry on with this campaign.

I am in touch with all of the women judges, mostly through WhatsApp. I cry with them. I try to make them laugh, but they can’t laugh with me. They have no energy left for laughing. These women who have spent their careers fighting for justice for others are begging now for justice themselves.


This is an opinion essay.

We welcome your comments on this article.  What are your thoughts on the plight of Afghan women judges?

Marzia Babakarkhail (@marziababakarkh) was a family law judge in Afghanistan in the 1990s. Now in England, she campaigns for evacuation and resettlement of women Afghan judges and their families trapped in Afghanistan or stuck in transit in Pakistan since fleeing the Taliban return to power in August 2021.

We would love your thoughts. Please comment:

As an Afghan feminist, I support that female judges in Afghanistan should be transferred to safe countries. As Ms. Marzieh wrote, the judges who are in confusion should find out their fate. We Afghan women are together and fight for our rights. And these judges are good role models for us.

According to many statements above, among the many vulnerable individuals and professionals who have remained in Afghanistan since the Taliban took power are female judges who have fought for equality and the rule of law. Now many of these female judges and their children and families are at risk of vicious attacks. Many thanks and appreciation go to Ms Qazi Marzia Babakarkhail. She bravely became the voice of these talented and vulnerable female Afghan judges.
As long as the UN international community continues to support female Afghan judges, I hope they will be able to do so.

The refusal of the UN to provide help and support to the women judges is inhumane in the extreme. These are women who administered justice according to the law only to find themselves facing death threats from criminals released by the Taliban, Qazi Marzia herself having escaped two assassination attempts even before the Taliban regime took control.
I would urge the UN to reconsider their position and provide sanctuary and support to these brave women and their families.

Greetings dear readers.

A false claim has been made recently in the media, that millions of dollars have been spent on Afghan female judges and prosecutors.

As Female judges, we worked honestly and with integrity and were the only breadwinners in our families.
Currently we live in rented houses, in a sub-zero economy, with no money for medical treatment and doctor’s fees, and when our children get sick, we administer paracetamol without a doctor’s prescription. We know that it is dangerous to give medicine without diagnosing disease, and put our children in risk because of financial and security problems.

There has been a lot of publicity regarding donations from August 2021 till now in the name of Afghan women judges.

Where are these donations from around the world raised in the name of Afghan women judges?

This is a kind of injustice. We live in a miserable situation in Afghanistan, we want the attention of the United Nations in this regard, and recently I would like to thank Ms. Qazi Sahib Babakarkhail, as she stand for us.

In addition to having lost their duty, female judges and prosecutors in Afghanistan are in a bad situation of insecurity, they are burning in the fire of revenge.
The international community must take action before female judges and prosecutors and their families in Afghanistan become victims of the revenge of criminals and terrorist groups.

As female judges, we have diligently worked with integrity and have shouldered the sole responsibility of being breadwinners in our families.

There has been significant publicity surrounding donations raised in the name of Afghan women judges from August 2021 until now. However, we question the whereabouts of these donations from around the world, including contributions from celebrities.

This situation raises concerns about injustice and fairness. Despite living in a miserable situation in Afghanistan, we earnestly seek the attention of the United Nations and other Human Rights and Women’s Rights Organizations. We are pleading for support, as it may appear that we have received sufficient assistance, but the reality is different.

The impact of these challenges will leave an indelible mark in history, and while we strive for justice and change, we will never forget or forgive the hardships faced.

Judge Babakarkhail pass our concerns to the WORLD.

I knocked on every single door to ask for support. Some doors never opened, some doors showed sympathy rather than action.

We are human beings. We should think about the two years during which the judges haven’t had any income.

The Taliban regime is against women. Human rights and Women’s rights organisations need to consider the Afghan women judges’ current situation. We call for support and discussion.

I cannot understand why no country or organisation is coming to the aid of these women judges trapped in Afghanistan at daily risk to their lives. They are only a small group and surely utterly deserving of help and rescue.
The technicality by which they were denied help by the UN WPHF safety net is completely ridiculous and cruel.

Reading about the plight of my fellow Afghan women judges breaks my heart into a million pieces. These brave women, who once stood for justice, are now being hunted down mercilessly. Stripped of dignity, livelihood, and security, they are pushed to the brink of existence.

Marzia Babakarkhail’s words, ‘I won’t give up helping them leave until one by one they all get out,’ echo in my mind. Her persistence gives us hope, but also a call to action. Disappointments from organizations like the UN Women’s Peace and Humanitarian Fund Safety Net remind us that our struggle is far from over.

My plea is for everyone to join Marzia in her fight. Let’s help these women, our sisters, escape the shadows of terror and step into the light of freedom.

The women judges in Afghanistan were activists by their everyday challenges of the Taliban regime’s ideology in their work for justice with in the courts. The UN & British government have to do more to enable a safe passage for them and their families ,they remain in danger.

The women judges stuck in Afghanistan are those who fought with their pen to ensure justice and defend human rights during their tenure as judges. They have been enforcers of human rights laws, gender equality and non-violence against Afghan women and children. After coming taliban in power, women judges lost their duties and now they are in a bad security,psychiatric and economic situation and they need help. So far, they have not received help from any donor organization and their financial requests have been rejected by the WPHFUND organization as well. Now we ask again the said organization to reconsider their decision regarding the rejected requests and provide humanitarian financial support to Afghan women judges like other civil activists supported.

Thanks to Judge Marzia Babakarkhail for her work, and continuing to share her experience. It is women like Judge Marzia who continue to make the world aware of the tragedies taking place in Afghanistan while world leaders look the other way. It is outrageous that the United Nation continues to preach about human rights while actively avoiding the conditions in Afghanistan. It is time for the international community to take action, not only helping the women judges stuck in the country but all the civilians in need.

I find it hard to believe that the UN does not consider these brave women to be activists while they are breakthrough citizens, lawyers and judges in a country entirely hostile towards women in general. Wake up, United Nations. These women need protection before they are all brutally tortured and/or murdered simply due to the fact that they are women with an education and a position of authority.

Currently, I and my family and my other colleagues (female judges) are living in a very bad security and economic situation in the country, we (female judges) are in need we disturbed, we have been subjected to violence we have lost everything.help all of my colleagues.

I am a disabled US veteran and I often think of the people in Afghanistan the US and other countries left behind. I made friends with a few Afghanistan women refugees who have been actively protesting against negotiating with the Taliban as it would give them the appearance of a group legitimacy. They are in fact tortuous, ruthless and not to be trusted. They got rid of the positions of the women judges and now those women are in danger for their lives. The UN must reconsider.

As an American citizen, I have watched the story of the female Afghani judges very closely. Marzia has worked tirelessly to help them in any way she can, but dozens of them have been left behind. These women are activists by the very nature of their former role in Afghani society. Now their lives remain threatened. I plead with anyone who reads this, and with the UN, to anything and everything in their power to help these brilliant and strong women to be free of fear and to have the chance to live full lives. They deserve our attention.

Afghan female judges have always tried to establish justice in their society under very difficult conditions. That is, female judges were one of the most important civil activists in a country like Afghanistan, and now that female judges are facing many economic problems in the current situation and have no source of financial income, because they are no longer allowed to work.

We Afghan female judges, as law enforcers, have continued our duty to provide social justice and defend the lost rights of the oppressed people of our country in bad security conditions that threatened our lives and our family members at any moment. Although two of our colleagues were killed by terrorists while performing their duties, this did not stop us from fighting injustice and our sacred duty. But today, we women judges are deprived of our human rights and we struggle with economic and security problems. @WPHFun, our donation forms rejected us female judges because we weren’t civic activists. But in fact, the role of a female judge in society as a law enforcer in those bad security conditions was and is much higher than that of a civil activist. Although the proposal of financial assistance to women judges has been raised at the global level, recently I respectfully request from the said organization to consider compassionately and revise the forms of financial assistance to women judges.
Best wishes.

In a society such as Afghanistan being a women and beside of that being a Judge we were facing many risks and problems.
By coming of the Taliban and breaking of the jails ‘ doors and releasing of criminals these risks increased more and more.
Women Judges of Afghanistan are facing the risk of being killed and many other problems that these risks and problems coerced us to leave Afghanistan and came to Pakistan.
However still we are facing many problems in Pakistan too.
Here we don’t have any income and we are suffering economic problems, health and living problems.

UN Women’s Peace and Humanitarian Fund Safety Net, which provides financing for “individual women human rights defenders who face risks that threaten their safety or ability to sustain their work,” it says. The judges were turned down because the risks must be “due to the activism that they did outside of their work,” we were told.
In their work, the judges fought for justice and helped women. Their activism was intrinsic. We humbly suggest reconsideration of the Safety Net policy to help the judges in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Greetings and respect! In the first step, I would like to thank Judge Marzia Babakarkhail, a former judge of Afghanistan, as a representative of Afghan female judges living in Pakistan who migrated to Pakistan due to security problems and threats from the Taliban. It’s been a year since I immigrated to Pakistan, After this period, my visa expired with my family members, We applied again after enduring many economic problems, but since our stay in Pakistan had ended after this period, the new visa was not issued because we had to pay a fine. We have to pay the exorbitant amount while we are not able to pay such money, We spent night and day and night without any income, the small amount of savings we had was used up; and that’s it. I suffered all these problems because I was serving as a judge in my country,  and because of this duty, security problems and threats from the Taliban pointed out to me that I was forced to travel to Pakistan, and here I am struggling with all kinds of security and economic problems because of the possibility of getting caught by  The police are on the lookout at any moment, our documents, such as visas and residency, must be legal, While I was in Kabul, I was living in hiding for fear of threats from the Taliban. Here in Pakistan, I am also living in fear of being caught by the secret police, which is my state of mind and spirit.  As a former judge of Afghanistan, I am asking the @WPHF organisation to help us financially so that we can resolve the problems that have arisen, and if possible, we want the mentioned organisation with our representative, Judge Babakarkhail and the team. They should hold a meeting so that we can tell them about our problems directly. Recently, I again asked you to reconsider the share of assistance given to Afghan judges, with respect to Judge Husna Ghafoori.

With the re-emergence of the Taliban in Afghanistan, we female judges are facing many security and economic problems. So far, no financial aid has been given to the judges stuck in Afghanistan. Our request to the United Nations is to not leave us alone in this bad economic and security situation. Thanks to Judge Sahib Marzieh Jan Babker Khel for not leaving us alone

A judge always tries to establish justice in society and Afghanistan is a traditional country where women have always been oppressed. Afghan female judges have always tried to establish justice in their society under very difficult conditions. That is, female judges were one of the most important civil activists in a country like Afghanistan, and now that female judges are facing many economic problems in the current situation and have no source of financial income, because they are no longer allowed to work. WPHF should not deny them financial aid. And in this bad situation of Afghanistan, they should be given financial aid.

We, Afghan women judges, trapped in the trap of the cruel Taliban, who are trapped by the hundreds of pains and sufferings, expect justice and help from the international community. Help us in this field. One day we were fighting for justice, now we have fallen into the trap of these cruel people of history, we want cooperation in this field.

The women judges stuck in Afghanistan are those who fought with their pen to ensure justice and defend human rights during their tenure as judges. They have been enforcers of human rights laws, gender equality and non-violence against Afghan women and children. After coming taliban in power, women judges lost their duties and now they are in a bad security,psychiatric and economic situation and they need help. So far, they have not received help from any donor organization and their financial requests have been rejected by the WPHFUND organizatio as well. Now we ask again the said organization to reconsider their decision regarding the rejected requests and provide humanitarian financial support to Afghan women judges like other civil activists supported.

First of all, I would like to thank Honorable Marzia babakarkhail for supporting women judges and bringing their voices to the world. Despite the difficulties that stood in their way, Afghan women judges worked hard to defend the rights of the oppressed. But now they are unemployed and without any income they lead their lives and their families. No institution has given them financial aid and their financial application form has been rejected by Wphfund organization because they are not members of civil society, while more than one civil activist helped the weak and oppressed people with thousands of obstacles. But they did not stop serving the people and defending their rights, now they have no income, and we demand the serious attention of the international community to this issue. Thanks

Dear @~Qazi Marzia Babakarkhail I appreciate your effort but I am surprised by the response given by the UN Women’s Peace and Humanitarian Fund Safety Net, which provides financing for “individual women human rights defenders who face risks that threaten their safety or ability to sustain their work,” it says. The judges were turned down because the risks must be “due to the activism that they did outside of their work,” we were told. Don’t these 49 women judges in Afghanistan and 19 stuck in transit in Pakistan also have the support of their families?

Thanks a lot of Ms judge Marzia Babakarkhail from all the efforts.
We, the Afghan women judges who were striving for justice and the defense of human rights, are now in a precarious situation due to deteriorating security and economic conditions. We find ourselves in a state of uncertainty, having lost our roles and responsibilities. Sadly, we have not received any financial assistance from any institution to help us secure our safety. We now appeal to you for assistance, as former executors of the law, to support the women judges in need.
As our financial application has been rejected by Wphfund, we kindly request the Women Judge office to intervene and closely monitor the progress of our application with Wphfund for the second time.

We judges stuck in in Afghanistan, are writing our pains in the form of a simple message, but we don’t know where to start:
1- First of all, through our voice, we want the remaining judges who are in a very bad situation to be evacuated as soon as possible from Afghanistan.
2- Secondly, we want financial assistance from the relevant organizations, especially from the financial office of WPHfund, because we are in a very bad economic situation, we cannot even pay for our medical treatments and our daily needs.
Meanwhile , we thank Judge Marzia Babakarkhel, who brings our voice to the world in this unfortunate and difficult situation.

With greetings and thanks to Mr. Judge MARZIA Jan BABAKARKHAIL, who always tried to save and resettle the judges, they want to keep the judiciary in Afghanistan from the bad economic situation. The judge is well aware and they have always been diligent in this direction, and I, in turn, ask the community of nations and aid agencies not to forget the remaining judges in Afghanistan and what to do in terms of helping and cooperating with them. Be financial. Or they should try from Afghanistan, because this was the judgment of women who always tried and sacrificed for the sake of providing justice and equality of human rights, but today they are in a bad situation in terms of economy and security.

With regards, Afghan female judges are one of the most affected people in the current situation.
We, Afghan women judges, despite all kinds of problems and bearing all kinds of security risks, continued our struggle to defend human rights and the rights of the victims of society, and there are many cases of family violence and other cases that clearly involve human rights violations، and we did not spare any kind of effort in providing justice.
But in the current situation, Afghan women judges who are trapped in Afghanistan need help, support and justice because they do not have any kind of human rights. In almost two years since the Taliban took the power in Afghanistan, afghan female judges have been living without any financial income.
We ask the international community, especially the United Nations (wphfund), not to leave us alone in this bad security and economic situation.
Like other civil activists, Afghan women judges were among the most active members of civil society and human rights defenders.
I hope that the international community, the United Nations and @wphfund understand our pain and do not withhold their support for us.
Thanks to Judge Marzia Babakarkhail for the many efforts she has done for us.

My heart aches for these brave women judges who risked everything to uphold justice and human rights, only to be hunted for the very work they did. It seems to me that their work was intrinsically activism so I don’t understand the funding decision. Can it be appealed or reviewed at all? These women need our help, surely they shouldn’t be denied this on what to a lay person like me looks like a technicality?! I will share this article and I hope everyone who read it does the same. Maybe together we can make a difference!

We write our pains in the form of messages. While we use Google Translate to fight this war, and help to describe how much we suffer, even Google Translate has problems with accuracy. ‘She’ is translated as ‘he’ because whilst we natively speak in Dari and Arabic, we can only raise our voice’s in English.

We do not know for which pain to seek treatment first: safety, security, refuge…with no hope we have no future.

1:- Not knowing English is the biggest difficulty and hindrance in the current day and age.

2:- The financial institution wphfund rejected our request for financial aid – as if we are not civil society activists! Does the martyrdom of two female judges by the hands of the Taliban in 2021 not mean that we are civil society activists?

3:- Judge Soraya’s martyrdom by the Taliban under their regime is the proof you need that we are defenders of human rights – we were fighting with our pen, with our lives on the line every single day. We implemented laws designed to protect human rights, build peace, freedom and equality. We resolved disputes, prevented conflict and brought peace to communities.

4:- We ask the wphfund financial aid institution to provide the forms to us female judges again so we can reapply. We very politely request you contact our representative Qazi Marzia as soon as possible.

We Afghan female judges, as law enforcers, did not suffer from any kind of struggle during our tenure to ensure social justice and defend women’s and human rights, but today, when we are deprived of all our human and human rights, we have a claim for ourselves. Today, we female judges have faced various security and economic problems. We filled out the @wphfund financial aid form to solve our economic problem, but the said organization rejected the form of the majority of us female judges because we are not considered civil society activists. This work of theirs is far from fair, because the job and role of a judge in a society as a law enforcer has been far more serious than that of a civil society activist, because the judge always tries to prevent the loss of rights on the part of the members of the society, and they themselves are the guardians of the law. In the defense of basic and human rights, the members of society play a significant role, so we request the relevant institutions to reconsider their decision to provide financial assistance to Afghan women judges. With great respect, Judge Husna GHAFOORI

If the judge is not considered an official civil activist. Basically, she is the most active person in the civil society because the cases that are organized and followed up through the civil society are ultimately the judge issuing the verdict
It takes courage to issue a sentence against an aggressor and a criminal and send him to prison. We judges have done this at the cost of our lives and property.
