Exemption From Travel Bans For Taliban Leaders Ends


The travel restriction and protection from prosecution for 13 Taliban commanders were rescinded by the Security Council. An international agency requested that the exemption from the travel prohibition granted to Taliban commanders be extended for an additional period. The United Nations Security Council levied restrictions on more than 100 Taliban commanders in 2011. 13 Taliban commanders were permitted to travel to other countries to meet with officials from other governments. After that, in June, the Committee on Afghanistan of the Security Council decided to rescind the protection of two Taliban educational officials. It is important to note that with the change in government in Afghanistan, the exclusion of Afghan educational officials from the travel restriction was removed because of the infringement of female rights.
