Amendment in security laws effective to better ensure security, Minister
 Addressing a conference on “Police Laws Review”, Minister of Interior, Taj Mohammad Jahid on Sunday stressed that in consider with status quo, if the security and military laws are amended, it will surely follow with suitable results. 
Therefore, it was required to amend the law in accordance with Islamic teachings, Afghan values and international norms, he further said.
He added some military section enforced laws should be amended in accordance with current situation of Afghanistan so to in consider with progressing sciences and technology to be effective in tackling problems.
Police is the applier of law and law should be equally executed on everyone in the country, thus, we are making effort to ensure the security of citizens at any cost, he went on to say. 
Deputy Military Attorney Gen. Abdul Fatah Azizi told the conference that police and attorneys maintained relations when it came to investigating crimes, so it was necessary to improve capacity and affairs of both.
Likewise, Meshrano Jirga’s commission on interior and defensive security stressed that those military generals and police officials who misuse their authorities and are involved in corruption should be legally treated. 
Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) head, Seema Samar stressed the need for both changes in the police laws and efforts at professionalizing the forces.
She added that being unprofessional and lack of police awareness on laws have caused some security officials to be directly involved in some human rights’ violations.
Thus, police forces should be professionalized in order to prevent human rights violations throughout the country, she went on to say.
Mirdad Khan Nijrabi, head of Wolesi Jirga’s commission on interior security, said amending the police act was need of time; adding officials of the ministry for interior should first implement law on themselves so the people trust in them. 
Police should be at the service of people, thus, they need to further attain the people trust, because in some case, they commit law-breaking moves which need to be reformed, he added. 
A number of experts said the government should pay further heed on professionalization of security entities particularly, security and local commanders instead of amending laws.
Amir Mohammad, a military expert said over the last years, the people of Afghanistan have witnessed bringing wide changes in the government different administrations particularly in security entities, but unfortunately, nothing considerable has been appeared in ensuring security.
This is while that ensuring security is one of the people of Afghanistan’s old demands and it would not be fulfilled unless sound management is created within security entities.
