The female Afghan judges who fled to the UK and fear for colleagues left behind

BBC, 17 Nov 2021
Under Taliban rule, female judges in Afghanistan have reportedly been tortured and received death threats, resulting in several fleeing to the UK as part of a government rescue mission.

Hundreds were forced into hiding, worried that those they'd convicted would come to seek their revenge after being released from prison.

These female judges have just arrived in the UK as part of the rescue mission organised by Baroness Kennedy and the International Bar Association.
