The prisoners were held for months and mistreated by Pakistani officials in prison, the statement said.

Earlier, the Consulate General of Afghanistan in Karachi, Sindh Province stated that 60 more prisoners were released thanks to the efforts of officials of the embassy Agan.

They were released from the Sindh Central Prison in Pakistan.

The Consulate General of Afghanistan also reported that 66 other prisoners, including 8 children, had been released from Karachi prison earlier. Meanwhile, the Afghan foreign ministry worked to free 2,342 Afghan prisoners from several Pakistani prisons who have now returned home, Kama Press reported.

Most Afghan nationals immigrate to neighboring countries such as Pakistan and Iran to seek medical care, work and to escape prosecution or security threats from the regime.

Some Afghan refugees lack legal travel documents, especially those seeking medical care or fleeing persecution by the de facto regime

As a result, they were detained and arrested by Pakistani authorities, according to Kama Press.

In May, the Taliban-appointed consul in Karachi, Pakistan, said it expected to release more than 290 Afghan citizens in the next two months, TOLONews reported.

The lawyer added that of the 2,600 Afghan prisoners held in Pakistan, nearly 2,350, including women and children, have been released and returned to the country.

Earlier in January 2023, Pakistan released 524 Afghan nationals accused of entering the country without valid travel documents, TOLONews reported. (Arnie)
