The Government of the Taliban in Afghanistan has directed the Local Officials not to carry out Public Execution unless directed by the Apex Court. 

In a tweet, Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid stated (translated in English):

The decision of the Council of Ministers of the Islamic Emirate:

“Punishment that requires the publicity of the offender and which the Courts have not recommended in the case of punishment, should be avoided.

And if the offender is punished, the punishment must be accompanied by a reminder that the people are aware of the crime.”

The decision comes after the United States strongly condemned the Taliban’s plans to reinstate Amputations and Executions as punishments in the country last month.

Senior Taliban leader Mullah Nooruddin Turabi told the Associated Press last month that the Government of Taliban will once again carry out Executions, though not in public.
