(ANSA) - ROME, SEPTEMBER 24 - The Taliban are preparing to restore the executions of those convicted of murder and the amputations of the hands and feet of those convicted of theft, even if perhaps not in public: he told the press agency Associated Press Nooruddin Turabi , one of the founders of the organization and responsible for the application of Islamic law in the country during the previous government of the mullahs. Brings the Guardian.


    In the previous Taliban government, Turabi was Minister of Justice and head of the so-called Ministry of Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, while now he is in charge of the prison system and is one of the leaders included in the UN sanctions list.


    The judges, including women, will judge the cases, he explained: "The cutting of the hands is very necessary for safety," he said, recalling that when it was practiced it had a deterrent effect. The government, he concluded, is considering whether to carry out the punishment in public and will "develop a policy" about it.


    When the Taliban were in power 20 years ago, executions of murder convicts were typically carried out with a gunshot to the head fired by a member of the victim's family, who had the option of accepting so-called "bloody money" in exchange for life of the condemned. Furthermore, for the thieves, the punishment was the amputation of a hand, while for the crime of highway robbery a hand and a foot were amputated. (HANDLE).
