UN Human Rights chief “said there had also been cases where ex-government officials and their relatives had been arbitrarily detained and were later found dead.”

The UN human rights office confirmed that the United Nations received “credible” reports that the Taliban is killing ex-government officials and their relatives.

“My office has received credible allegations of reprisal killings of a number of former ANSF (Afghan National Security Forces) personnel, and reports of officials, who worked for previous administrations and their family members being arbitrarily detained,” UN human rights chief Michelle Bachelet told the agency’s Human Rights Council on Monday.

The UN human rights chief cited  “’multiple’ allegations of Taliban house-to-house searches looking for officials from the previous government and “people who cooperated with US security forces and companies,” she added.

The UN disclosure further confirms news reports that the Taliban has drawn up kill-lists and carrying out door-to-door searches for government officials and security personnel belonging to the deposed Afghan government.
