NPR Spotlights Legal System in Afghanistan

After the Taliban lost control of Afghanistan in 2003, its justice system needed to be rebuilt from the ground up.  While most post-war resources were being devoted elsewhere, the legal system improved – but only barely.  Still, Abdul Saboor Hashimi, the chief judge of the Sangcharak district of Sari Pul province says he is optimistic, but that corruption is still very large problem.

The NPR series addresses both the problems within the legal system and the ways the flailing system affects the ability to reach other goals in Afghanistan.  Click here for podcasts of shows that have already aired.
