BHRC writes letters of condolence to the President of Afghanistan and Chancellor of Kabul University following attack on law students

The Bar Human Rights Committee has written to the President of Afghanistan and the Chancellor of Kabul University today to express its deep condolences to the victims and families of those injured or killed in the attack at Kabul University yesterday where reportedly all students attending a law class were killed.

The attack is a graphic reminder of the personal risks undertaken by lawyers in so many places throughout the world seeking to uphold the rule of law, an essential part of any functioning state seeking to protect all its citizens.

BHRC has seen first-hand the courage and dedication of lawyers, judges and others involved in the justice system in Afghanistan in the most difficult of circumstances.
