Taliban release 340 prisoners from prisons

The Taliban ( banned in Russia ) released 340 prisoners who were held in colonies in the western province of Farah. This is reported by the Pajhwok edition with reference to the country's law enforcement agencies.

It is noted that the criminals who were in prisons were convicted of crimes related to a threat to state security.

On August 19, the leader of the Taliban, Haybatullah Akhundzada, ordered the provincial governors to release and hand over to their families all political prisoners. At the same time, the representative of the terrorist organization, who published this post on Twitter, called Akhundzada the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, although Afghanistan did not officially change the name of the country.

On August 15, the Taliban entered Kabul and declared full control over the territory of Afghanistan. They also announced that they would soon proclaim the creation of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
