Subject: “For LawEducator Only...” Asylum Request for Afghan Evacuee:I am attaching a I-589 for your review. Questions: 1)I marked the withholding for removal box on page 1. Is that appropriate given the applicant's situation? 2) Is a more extensive personal statement required? 3) How can this application be strengthened? The evidence that former Afghan National Army personnel are being persecuted is extensive..Human Rights watch and Amnesty Intl reports as well as lots of media coverage. He also has some pretty gruesome pictures of fellow soldiers post execution from his time in the ANA. I attached the HRW report for ref and have more supporting documentation. Short exerpt FYI Saiful is from Ghazni "Summary
The Taliban have told my family that my brothers are on a list…. They
searched our house and arrested my older brother. He was released after
two days, but during those days my younger brother was arrested and till
now we don't know where he is, how he is, if he is alive.
– Former Afghan government official in hiding, October 9, 2021
This report documents the summary execution or enforced disappearance of 47 former
members of the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF)—military personnel, police,
intelligence service members, and paramilitary militia—who had surrendered to or were
apprehended by Taliban forces between August 15 and October 31, 2021. The report
focuses on Ghazni, Helmand, Kandahar, and Kunduz provinces, but the cases reflect a
broader pattern of abuses reported in Khost, Paktiya, Paktika, and other provinces."
