"They are women who had the effrontery to sit in judgment on men,” said Susan Glazebrook, President of the judges’ association and a justice of the Supreme Court in New Zealand.

The IAWJ is very concerned about the dangers women judges are facing in Afghanistan. They are our members and our friends and we hope they will all be rescued soon. We are thankful that some of our members are now safe and recognise the vital role played by the Polish authorities in the rescue of some 20 women judges and their families. These judges have now been in Poland for over a month and have received a warm welcome. We have great pleasure today in releasing this statement of thanks.

Judges in Afghanistan are in very grave danger.
Judges are at risk because they made rulings in terrorism and security cases in accordance with the law. They are at risk because of their rulings in criminal cases. They are at risk because, where required by law, they ruled against men in domestic violence, divorce and child custody cases. They are at risk because some of these judgments were made against Taliban members. In effect judges in Afghanistan are at risk because they upheld the rule of law and respected human rights.
