The plight of prosecutors, judges, and defense lawyers left behind in Afghanistan is a critical issue. Here are the key takeaways:

  1. Prosecutors’ Situation: These individuals, although trained by the United States, were technically not U.S. employees. When the U.S. withdrew, they faced extreme risk, especially women. Many have been killed, and those who survived are living in precarious conditions.
  2. Obligation to Assist: Advocates argue that the U.S. government has an obligation to help these prosecutors, judges, and defense lawyers. They are essential for maintaining justice and the rule of law.
  3. Challenges: Rescuing them involves significant challenges. The cost to relocate a family to a safe country is around $10,000. While the U.S. is not the primary destination due to family ties, logistical hurdles exist.
  4. Security Concerns: Leaving behind military equipment and sensitive information poses risks. The Taliban has access to full-body scans of these professionals, making their safety precarious.
  5. Humanitarian Efforts: Humanitarian groups are working on the ground to assist these individuals. Donations and support are crucial to their rescue.

In summary, the situation demands urgent attention, and efforts are underway to provide a safe haven for these brave professionals
