Woman who slammed Roshan to ground apologies

Woman who slammed Roshan to ground apologies

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Peace Ministry employee Shekaba Safi has apologized for slamming lawmaker Belqes Roshan to the ground after she raised a placard against the release of Talibaninfo-icon prisoners.

When President Ashraf Ghani was addressing the Consultative Loya Jirgainfo-icon (CLJ) on Friday, Belqes Roshan, a lawmaker from Farah province, raised a placard with words “Offering extortion to savage Taliban is a national treason.”

The president responded to Roshan by saying that he was not being blackmailed by the Taliban and the jirgainfo-icon will decide regarding the release of the Taliban prisoners.

But Roshan continued her protest when Shakaba first pushed her and then smashed her to the ground.

Abdullah Abdullah, head of the CLJ, told reporters that Shakaba went to the Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon and apologized to Roshan for what she did.

Asadullah Shahab, secretary of the CLJ, said that Shakaba was a volunteer organizer of the Jirga.

When asked if Shakaba worked for the Peace Minister, he replied: “I have had heard this but it is not confirmed. I can just say Shakaba was hired for four days for the CLJ.”

He termed Shakaba’s action against democratic principles and added the administrative panel of the CLJ will take a decision on Shakaba’s action after hearing Belqes Roshan’s views.
