Practice Relating to Rule 87
Afghanistan’s Law on Juvenile Rehabilitation and Training Centres (2009) states regarding the detention of juveniles:
Article 4. Observance of Human Rights.
1. Employees of Juvenile Justice Department Centres (JJDC) & Juvenile Rehabilitation Centres (JRCs), prosecutors, judges and other individuals who are dealing with the juveniles, [whether these are] suspected, accused [or] convicted, are responsible [for] observing … human rights standards while performing their duties.
2. [The] living condition of the juveniles … should [not impact on their] mental or physiological [health], … [deprive] them [of] their rights [nor restrict] their freedom in the Juvenile Justice Department Centres (JJDC).
In 2012, the Office of the President of Afghanistan issued a press release entitled “Judicial meeting assesses administrative detention in the light of Afghan laws”, which stated:
The judicial meeting chaired by President Hamid Karzai discussed and assessed various issues including continued detention of over 600 Afghan inmates by US forces, additional Protocol II to the  Geneva Convention[s] and administrative detention in the light of Afghan laws.
At the meeting held in the Presidential Palace, it was noted that based on Article 7 of the Afghan Constitution, the State of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan shall abide by the international treaties and conventions that it has signed.
Hence, Afghanistan fully observes and respects the additional Protocol II to the  Geneva Convention[s] that has enshrined in its provisions, the principles of human rights and treating prisoners humanely.
