Mohammad Aman Amin, the assistant head of the Consulate Department of the Afghanistan Foreign Ministry announced on Tuesday that Iran refuses to hand over the bodies of executed Afghan nationals.

“The Iranian Judicial System has recently issued death sentences for 127 afghans”, Amin said in a speech in the Afghan Senate.

The Afghan Foreign Minister had said before this that about 3,000 Afghan nationals are jailed in Iran for various crimes. Notably, because of the constant wars and severe poverty in Afghanistan, more than 3 million Afghan refugees live in Iran. (Al-Arabia website – Nov. 9, 2010)
