Afghan Deputy Minister of Justice, Zakia Adili, called the Taliban a “monopolist” group that does not show flexibility in the peace process, and that the view of the group toward justice for victims of violence is political rather than rights-based.

Adili, who has been a member of a contact group of Afghanistan’s Islamic Republic that held talks with the Taliban, said achieving peace with the Taliban is a difficult task.

“The Taliban is tough, they make excuses and are inflexible; or, I can say they are flexible but it is very difficult… The narrative that the Taliban has about justice is a political narrative,” Adili said at an event attended by women.

The event was held to determine the place of judicial institutions in the peace process, and Sima Samar, the state minister for human rights affairs, said war victims should not be ignored in the talks.
